Windows 7: windows7 first boot

27 Sep 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
windows7 first boot

I need some help on what happens during a "first boot" of Windows 7 , what files are used and when the bcd comes into play.
can someone direct me to a website that shows this?
how does windows know if a file has changed?
how does window know if a file is corrupt or not the original?
thank you for your help!

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

Well; to be honest; I dont think you really need to worry about those things too much as windows pretty much handles all of that on its own; however; if you really want to know try taking a look at this video from youtube; as it may help answer any questions. if it doesnt Im not really sure where else to point ya to because as i said most of what you are asking is done behind the scenes so to speak and is handled by windows by itself automatically.

Windows7, Boot from VHD and SSD (with TRIM)
Hi! Is it possible to use the TRIM-Command with the "boot from VHD" option in Windows 7? AFAIK a delete in a vhd is quite diffrent to a delete of a "real" file. What do you think? Thanks!
