Summary

The Ntldr file uses information in the Boot.ini file to display the bootstrap loader screen from which you select the operating system. This screen is based on the information in the Boot.ini file. If you do not select an entry before the counter reaches 0 (zero), Ntldr loads the operating system that is specified by the default parameter in the Boot.ini file.
