You might want to have a llok at

% man boot
% man loader

or read chapter 1 of the FreeBSD handbook: "Bootstrapping and kernel initialization" at

The introduction is very generic (might fit to topic of embedded systems) while the boot stages and the loader are FreeBSD specific... for educational use... :-)

Cloudy, thank you very much for your postings. I wish to read that on! :-)
