“This write-up is intended to discuss the general principals involved in booting the operating system. We can define the booting process as something that starts an operating system when the user turns on his machine. This process, in addition to other factors, includes a boot sequence, which is a set of operations the system performs to load the OS.”

Man, that was disappointing
