Hardware, Embedded Systems Gustav Duarte has written a three part article about the computer boot up process. The series starts with the Motherboard Chipsets and the Memory Map of an Intel computer and then he covers the processes that take place from the BIOS initialization to the boot loader. The final part is the coverage of the Kernel Boot Process.

Adding my voice to the praise for these articles. Very nice.

I'm still dreaming of the day when I'll be able to boot my PC OS as fast as my old Commodore 64.

Edit: I guess the only way to do that would be to burn the core OS into ROM? I did have an ancient Libretto with Win 95 in ROM and bootup was near instantanious.
