具体实施方式 detailed description

本发明的较佳实施例可为一闪速存储储存盘,或为一闪速存储芯片模块 Preferred embodiment of the present invention may be a flash memory storage disk, or from a flash memory chip module

先以闪速存储储存盘来说明。 In a flash memory storage disk first be described. 参考图3,步骤l为计算机开机。 Referring to Figure 3, the computer boot step l. 当计算机开机之后,进入步骤2,起动BIOS。 When the computer is turned on, you proceed to step 2, starting BIOS. BIOS会预先检查系统并且将BIOS 的主引导记录加栽到随机存取存储器中,主引导记录包括具有校检信息的数据段和具有可执行代码段。 BIOS will be checked in advance and the system BIOS the master boot record plummeted to add the random access memory, the master boot record includes a data segment having information and a checksum segment having executable code. 可执行代码使用数据信息来校验硬件的兼容性及 Executable code uses the data information to verify hardware compatibility and

系统的配置。 System configuration. 当测试完对硬件兼容性和正确的系统配置之后,可执行代码就将BIOS映象加栽RAM中。 After completion of the test hardware compatibility and proper system configuration, the executable code will be added planted BIOS image in RAM. BIOS的映象在继ROM-BIOS之后,则进入加载操作系统的程序。 Following the image in the BIOS ROM-BIOS, the program is loaded into the operating system.

步骤3,在ROM-BIOS中,包括了POST (加电自检)的程序。 Step 3, the ROM-BIOS, the program comprising the POST (Power On Self Test) is. 在POST 程序中,执行系统的预备初始化和测试,决定BIOS映象究竟是由硬盘、光盘、闪速存储储存盘、还是软盘加栽,并检查兼容性及加栽主引导记录。 In the POST program, and the preliminary test execution system initialization, it determines whether the BIOS image is planted plus a hard disk, an optical disk, a flash memory storage disk, or diskette, checks compatibility and plant and add the master boot record. 在本发明的该例举中,计算机设定加栽操作系统的顺序是硬盘、光盘、闪速存储储存盘、及软盘。 In this example of the present invention, a computer operating system to set the order of addition plant is a hard disk, an optical disk, a flash memory storage disks, and floppy disks.

所以在步骤4中,首先判断计算机的硬盘是否可以正常加载操作系统。 Therefore, in step 4, the computer first determines whether the operating system from the hard disk can be loaded. 若计算机的硬盘可以正常加载操作系统的话,即进入步骤4丄,由硬盘起动操作系统。 If the computer's hard drive can load the operating system is normal, i.e., Shang proceeds to step 4, starting from a hard disk operating system. 否则,若计算机的硬盘无法正常加栽操作系统的话,即进入步骤5,进一步判断,是否可以由光盘起动操作系统。 Otherwise, if the computer's hard disk can not be planted plus operating system is normal, that is, proceed to step 5 to further determine whether you can start the operating system from the CD.

若计算机的光盘可以正常加栽操作系统的话,即进入步骤5-1,由光盘起动操作系统。 If the computer's optical add normal plant operating system, then proceeds to step 5-1 i.e., start-up operation by the optical disk system. 否则,若计算机的光盘无法正常加栽操作系统的话,即进入步骤6,由本发明的闪速存储储存盘起动操作系统。 Otherwise, if the disc does not increase plant computer operating system is normal, i.e., proceeds to step 6, a flash memory storage disc according to the present invention starting the operating system.

依照所述本发明的实施方法,当硬盘无法起动操作系统时,固然可以找寻栽有操作系统的光盘来起动操作系统,但是这种作法非常麻烦。 The method in accordance with the embodiment of the present invention, when the hard drive can not start the operating system, although the plant may find an operating system to start the operating system of the optical disc, but this practice very troublesome. 所以若是不由硬盘或光盘起动,藉由本发明,依然可以轻易地由闪速存储储存盘来起动操作系统。 Therefore, if a hard disk or optical disk help start, by the present invention, still can be easily stored by the flash memory to start the disk operating system. 更不用说可以不必再通过软盘来起动操作系统了。 Not to mention you can no longer have a floppy disk to start the operating system.

此外,所述开机后依序检查由硬盘、光盘、闪速存储储存盘、及软加载 Further, after the startup sequence is checked by a hard disk, an optical disk, a flash memory storage disk, and softloading
