Lesson 1. Navigating the Windows NT Desktop > Starting Windows NT Workstation

Starting Windows NT Workstation

To start Windows NT Workstation, you simply turn your computer and your monitor on. What happens next depends on how your computer is configured (set up). The NT Loader screen appears, offering you various options to start the computer. If, for example, your computer is configured for a dual boot, you can select the operating system you want to use for the current session (Windows NT, MS-DOS, or OS/2). If you're using only the Windows NT operating system, you can leave the computer alone and let the default Windows NT operating system start on its own.

Plain English

Dual Boot A dual boot is a setup option that allows you to use either the Windows NT Workstation operating system to run your computer, or another operating system such as DOS or OS/2. The NT loader screen presents your options, and you choose one by pressing the up or down arrow on the keyboard and pressing Enter to confirm your choice.
