220.127.116.11 Preboot Sequence
During startup, a Windows Server 2003-based computer initializes the boot portion of the hard disk and the
preboot sequence begins. This sequence consists of four steps:
• The computer runs power-on self test (POST) process to determine the amount of physical memory; and
• The hardware components are present.
• If the computer has a Plug and Play (BIOS), enumeration and configuration of hardware devices occurs.
• The computer BIOS locates the boot device and loads and runs the master boot record (MBR).
Note: Windows Server 2003 modifies the boot sector during installation so
that Ntldr loads during system startup. Therefore you should disable the
Boot Sector Virus Protection in your BIOS Setup.
