Troubleshooting Windows Startup and Shutdown Problems

Conclusion

In this chapter, we’ve examined the detailed steps involved in starting and shutting down Windows (both normally and in error cases). We’ve examined the overall structure of Windows and the core system mechanisms that get the system going, keep it running, and eventually shut it down. The final chapter of this book explains how to deal with an unusual type of shutdown: system crashes.
