The Windows Operating System can be booted from RAM (internal memory); this is a highly specialized procedure - technically quite difficult to accomplish. What happens in general terms is this :

We have the whole Operating System in a file. Thus, one large file and in our case the file is aboubt 13GB of size. If we observe such files on disk, it can look like this :


Here you see 4 Operating Systems with a name we gave it ourselves.

Side note for the insiders : These are files, normally used for Virtualization of the Operating System (generally Virtualization in this context means that an Operating System is emulated within another Operating System).

We use these files to copy them to RAM before the system boots, and once the file is fully copied to RAM (from its source, like an SSD), we can boot from there. Now the source (e.g. SSD) can be removed from the system; It is not necessary any more, since all what the Operating System requires resides in RAM.

When such a Boot has been accomplished and we look at the Operating System Drive, we see this :


... in other words, nothing special. Actually it is very very difficult to find means which tell that this is a RAM Disk (in the end, that's what it is).


For our Audio Application this is very beneficial because we can be completely without any "device" as such, by now knowing that each (current drawing) apparatus is detrimental to good sound.


It is regarded that such a boot environment can not be created by "normal people" as it is too complicated and takes about 11 hours even when done for the 10th time (read : even after sufficient experience it still takes 11 hours to go through all the steps necessary).
For this reason Phasure can provide what we call the "BASE Disk", which is an SSD which is organized for this all and which is ready to be used for each Operating System, Phasure put on it (each with the required ~11 hours of time to prepare it).
After you received the Disk (SSD), it can the most easily be updated with new Operating Systems; Might you look back in the first screen shot above, then such a file you see can be downloaded and just copied to the BASE Disk so it ends up in the list you see in that screen shot.
After that has been done, it is XXHighEnd (from of 2.05) which allows to add such an Operating system to the Boot Menu, all controlled by XXHighEnd itself. It takes really no 10 seconds to add it.


The further Tutorial Paragraphs in this Chapter will explain in detail how to go about with this all.
