An analyst is booting a desktop that has Windows 7 installed with 4 GB RAM. The boot process is currently working on the following step: Winload uses the path specified in BOOTMGR to find the boot partition. What is the next step that will happen in the boot process?

  • WinLoad loads two files that make up the core of Windows: NTOSKRNL.EXE and HAL.DLL.
  • The BIOS boots the computer using the first drive that contains a valid boot sector.
  • The code in the boot sector is executed and the control of the boot process is given to Windows Boot Manager.
  • The Windows kernel takes over the boot process.
