  1. The boot sector is on the hard drive, so I don't know what you are trying to do.
    While you can boot from a cd/dvd even usb to install an OS, once installed it runs off the hard/SSD drive.
    Where do you think it's located now?

    hey ,what do u mean by saying that boot sector is on hard drive .actually what i wanted to know is that when we on the computer it need to undergo booting ,so i wanted to know whether this booting process can be stored in ahard drive so that when system is onbooting process can be done in a fraction of seconds and proceed with our work.
  3. Hibernation will do what you ask for, if I understand the question correct.
    That will save the windows state (ram) to the HD and restore it when you power up again.

    Or you could use stand by which will just shut down screen, hdd etc and have ram powered. This is faster, but require that power is on.
