Chapter 1. Understanding Windows NT Work... > Starting Windows NT Workstation 4.0

Starting Windows NT Workstation 4.0

For Windows 3.x users, the startup process for Windows NT Workstation 4.0 probably will seem very different than what you are used to seeing. When you start your computer running Windows NT Workstation 4.0, you are starting both the operating system (DOS) and the pleasant, familiar graphical interface with which to work (Windows). Where you previously started your computer, watched DOS initialize, perhaps logged on to a network, and then typed WIN to start Windows, most of the functions now have been integrated in a single startup of and logon to Windows NT. This is also the case with Windows 95, which also happens to package a graphical user interface into an operating system. We'll take a look in this section at the process for starting up Windows NT Workstation 4.0, including what processes occur in your computer, what appears on-screen, and how to get access to Windows NT Workstation 4.0.
