I don't know if this is what you mean but ...

When your computer boots and reads "Starting Windows ..." press F8, then select Step by step confirmation. This will prompt you to answer Yes or No to every instruction during boot up and show you what's going on in the meantime.

Or, select "logged" option from the menu.  This will create a file named bootlog.txt, which can be viewed with notepad, listing what's going on at bootup time.

maybe he means:

1. Video BIOS
2. CMOS
3. IO.SYS
4. MSDOS.SYS
5. CONFIG.SYS
6. AUTOEXEC.BAT
7. WIN.COM

but I do think the first step for him would be to award some points to this question first...

I can give you a VERY detailed explanation of the Win95 boot process.  You in turn must cough up some points, it's only fair.

For 0 points ...
Step 1: Turn on the power switch.
Step 2: Wait until your BIOS/CMOS go thru POST.
Step 3: Wait for "Starting Windows95..."
Step 4: Watch the pretty Windows95 logo until your Desktop comes up.

Simple ... Ain't it ...

It appears to me that the asker might be attempting to discover what happens when the Win95 operating system delivers the WIN command to the CPU.  The hidden process of driver loading that takes place during "normal" windows bootup and "safe" bootup might be the point of his inquiry.  Would like to know if his question has already been answered or not.

You can answer it if you want, but I think that this asker is just playing with us.  The question has been up for a couple of weeks and they haven't even come back to check on it.  Also the asker would be willing to award some points to this question if they felt that the answer was actually worth something.  They certainly are showing a complete disregard for our time and effort needed to answer the question.  After all, the points are free.  There is no need to be miserly about them.
