If you are doing an upgrade you can put the DVD in the drive and when it auto plays just follow the prompts to do the installation. Just make sure to pick upgrade for the installation type.
If you are doing a fresh/clean installation you can boot from the DVD and it should automatically start the setup. Make sure you computer is set to boot from the DVD drive before the hard drive.
Follow the prompts and the only thing you will have to be concerned about is where you are going to install Windows and what you are going to do with the hard drive. If you already have Windows on the drive and want to keep your files then make sure to back them up first.
If you like you can format your hard drive when it asks to wipe everything out and start clean. Or if its a blank hard drive you will have to format it to make it usable. Keep in mind that formatting will erase everything on it. If it is already formatted then you can leave it as is if you like.
After it formats and copies the necessary files it will take you through the graphical portion of setup where you will enter information such as your name and product key. You can basically accept the defaults for all the selections.
When its finished you will have to make sure that all your hardware has working drivers for it. Go into Device Manager and look for problems.
If your computer is working now I would go into Device Manager before the installation and make a note of what hardware you have. You only really need to worry about display adapter, network adapter and sound card. This way if you have to look for drivers online for your computer you will know what to search for.
Were you using one of the built in Windows wallpapers or one of your own? If you are using one of your own from an image it may have disappeared if the file was moved or deleted. If you had selected the set as background wallpaper option from an e-mail or web page it most likely put the file in a temp location and it may have been cleared out if you deleted any temp files or web browser cache.
The best way to keep your background from disappearing is to save the image as a file to somewhere on your computer such as My Pictures. If this image was from a web page or e-mail then you need to find it again, right click it and select Save Picture As and then pick a location to save it. After that you would go into your desktop properties and set your background as the image you have saved by browsing to the file location.
Ntoskrnl is the operating system kernel for Windows. It is an essential part of Windows. The kernel is responsible for providing secure access to the machine's hardware to various computer programs. It controls the way any other software component can access these resources.
The boot sequence is the order of the processes and steps requires to start a computer. After you turn on the computer it goes through its power on self test (POST) which is a diagnostic program that checks your hardware to ensure that everything is present and working properly. Then the BIOS checks devices, finds the boot sector and shows its startup screen.
Then the boot files are located on the hard drive and the proper boot sequence is initiated by the boot loader which loads other software for the operating system to start. The boot sectors main function is to load and execute the kernel which continues startup. Finally the operating system is loaded. The process will vary depending on the operating system in use.
A Windows server operating system can be used for many different things where as a non server version often called a workstation version is mainly used as a client that connects to the server. Servers are often used as a centralized location to store files and other data such as websites, applications and databases. Then all of the clients (workstations) can connect to this location over the network to get the information they need.
One of the main things Windows servers are used for are domain controllers. Domain controllers act as a central place where users log into the domain for authentication. A domain is a group of computers and devices on a network that are administered as a unit with common rules and procedures. Depending on their credentials the clients will be able to access resources on the network that they have permission for after they log into the domain.
There are more versions of standard/client Windows operating systems compared to Windows server operating systems. More recent client versions include 7, 8 and 10 where server versions include Windows 2008, 2012 and 2016. Home users generally use one of the standard versions. In a work environment you will have more workstation computers than server computers. One server computer can provide resources to hundreds or even thousands of clients depending on the configuration.
