Hey guys,

There's a new article in the wiki that I think warrants a post here, as it address many fundamental questions that we've been asked to compile a resource about over the years.

The BIOS/MBR Boot Process, aka everything you ever wanted to know about how your PC boots, part one

Part 1 is because a followup article dedicated to EFI/UEFI machines and GPT disks is on its way, due to arrive soon (TM), as well as another article focusing on the similarities and differences between the two.

It's definitely on the longer side, so happy reading!
