Boot Phases (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

The BootPhase registry value can be used to specify the boot phase that a device that is located under the Autoload registry key should be loaded in by Filesys.exe and the FSD Manager. This registry value was created so that the OS can access the locale table in Wince.nls if it is stored on an external storage device. The following registry key shows an example of the BootPhase registry value.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Autoload\<your file system>]

The following table shows the possible values for BootPhase.

Value Description
0 Prior to initialization of locale.
1 After locale has been initialized but before the full registry is functional.
2 After the registry is functional.

Note   The BootPhase value is only applicable for Autoload file systems and autoload block drivers. This value does not apply to block devices that are loaded by Device.exe.
