Chapter 10. Managing the Boot Process > Using Hardware Profiles

Using Hardware Profiles

One of your options during the boot process is to select a Hardware Profile. A Hardware Profile is basically a record of a particular system configuration—a list of the devices and device drivers.

For most people, the only Hardware Profiles they need are the Original Configuration profile and, perhaps, the Last Known Good configuration.
