Windows XP Boot-up Sequence: Proof

Specs: XP, All
Hi,

I have just uploaded a complete (?) Windows XP Boot Sequence to the Web, and I would like to enlist this very knowledgable forum to help proof-read the presentation and provide any comments, corrections, ommissions etc.

The presentation looks best in Internet Explorer, but in Firefox it has a very small pane for the presentation, this can be overcome to some extent by expanding the test portion using the Down Arrow in the bottom left pane.

The address is:

www.blanshard.org/XPBoot.htm

Many thanks in advance.

Wibs

Power on 1, is not quite correct.
The motherboard checks the voltages to be sure that they are within tolerances. If they are, the POwer Good signal is sent back to the power supply.

I'll check some more if I have time.

I may be wrong, but I think that after the bios does the check of the motherboard circuits, including the video adapter and the RAM, the initial POST beep is output. I don't think any check of IDE devices has been accomplished at this time.

I didn't interpret your seuence that way, but maybe that's my fault.

When I said "including the video adapter and the RAM",I meant just the ability to access them, not a functional test.
