  13. The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is a program that controls the functionality of the server hardware components. Bootsector is the sector on the server's disk that contains the information to boot your server. The bootloader is a program that loads the OS kernel into RAM. The bootloader is located in MBR. In Windows OSes, there are two types of bootloaders: NTLDR and BOOTMGR. MBR is created when disk partitions are created too, however, MBR resides outside disk partitions. Multiboot: every time you turn on your computer, you will notice a boot menu that lists multiple OSes. Boot Configuration Data (BCD) represents a store consisting of a specific file that enables control of what should happen when an OS boots. POST is a diagnostic test that verifies that the server hardware is working correctly. Safe mode is a Windows diagnostic mode that uses a minimal set of drivers and services.
  14. Among the dozens of available methodologies, a six-step troubleshooting model known as the detect method is used by Microsoft Product Support Services engineers. The steps are: discover the problem, evaluate system configuration, list or track possible solutions, execute a plan, check results, and take a proactive approach.
  15. The Event Viewer generates an enormous number of logs; hence, in finding the right information that would help to overcome the issues, event filtering is used. Setting the wrong filtering criteria will result in getting filtered results that will not help to find the right information to overcome the issues. The problem with event logs is that they consume storage space. Hence, changing the default logs' locations helps to overcome the lack of storage space for storing logs. That enables writing event messages to any of the log files due to a lack of storage space.
