  1. If you're having problems with booting your PC,
    this reference gives all the gorry details from Power On,
    reading the MBR, the partition table, loading NTLDR, NTDETECT,
    NTOSKRNL, HAL.dll, giving control to the kernel, getting the boot-time
    services initiated and creating the login environment.

    joe? who's joe? see my signature :)

    I thought I would post my findings, as I'm fighting a boot problem after
    a Recovery Console Restore.
