A Study on Direct Memory Loading of an Operating System Through Preboot Execution in a Homogenous Computing Environment

S.N. Remesh and A. Abid

Abstract:
In this study, the remote boot process of an operating system was looked into to determine how an optimized solution using the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) process could be created. This study focuses on Windows CE remote boot implementation in an embedded homogeneous computing environment. Instead of a DOS shell environment and a bootloader, this research demonstrates the use of PXE pre-OS environment to introduce the OS bootloading process, which allows a linear address space Windows CE boot image to be downloaded directly to the remote client machine system memory by using PXE. In addition, the use of optimized PXE pre-OS stage to perform the typical bootloading process and the use of the PXE OS boot stage to download the linear address space Windows CE boot image is shown. The result is a quicker remote boot solution customized for Windows CE which illustrated how PXE and an operating system could be built to produce a quicker remote boot boot-up experience.
