Basic Input

Before beginning let's consider restarting another interesting point. During boot the computer meets the BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) basic input output. The main function of BIOS motherboard – the initialization of devices connected to the motherboard, immediately after turning off the computer. BIOS checks the performance of devices (so-called. Self-test, Eng. POST – Power-On Self Test), sets the low-level parameters of their work (eg, the central microprocessor bus speed), and then looks for the operating system loader (English Boot Loader) to the available storage media, and passes control to the operating system. Since in Currently operating system we do not have a boot from the hard drive we have does not happen, we need to make changes in the initial load. This can be done in two ways.

1.) When you restart after the POST and initialization of hardware pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. You should see a dialog box that prompts to perform the initial load from one of the few carriers initialized system. In this case, where the autograph Ishim include the words: CD / DVD ROM or something similar. Why do I say something like – in this menu will display the devices, as I mentioned above, which initializes the system. That is automatically determine the type, model, serial number and bar menu will consist entirely of the names of the unit and will look something like LOAD FROM DVD / RE ATA 354 343 device depends on the manufacturer of your drive and BIOS version.
