An accountant is booting a PC that has Windows 8 installed. The boot process is currently working on the following step: BIOS locates and reads the configuration settings that are stored in the CMOS memory. What is the next step that will happen in the boot process?

  • The BIOS boots the computer using the first drive that contains a valid boot sector.
  • WinLoad loads two files that make up the core of Windows: NTOSKRNL.EXE and HAL.DLL.
  • WinLoad reads the registry files, chooses a hardware profile, and loads the device drivers.
  • Winload uses the path specified in BOOTMGR to find the boot partition.
