hello,

Linux boot process:

   > As power comes up the BIOS is given control
   
> BIOS runs self tests, usually including cursory memory tests.
 
>  The BIOS then loads the first sector of the disk to be used for booting and transfers control to it.
   
> The MBR code varies. One version will chain to the code in the first sector of the boot partition (Windows), another will load a bootloader. Windows boot proceeds from code and information in the boot partition.
   
>bootloader chooses kernel location and version
   
>bootloader prepares kernel and initrd image in memory, transfers control to kernel
   
> loading kernel modules
 
>  discovering hardware and load additional kernel modules to support it
 
 > looking for disks
 
 >  R/O mount of / partition so that it can potentially be checked and repaired
   
 >init process spawn

> /etc/inittab read and executing
   
> mounting all FSes from /etc/fstab
   
>runlevels running (based on default runlevel in /etc/inittab) or another init method such as systemd or upstart
 
 > rc.local
 
 >  login prompt



Thanks,
Soumya.

There are many different Debian distributions. Choosing the proper Debian distribution is an important decision. This section covers some information useful for users that want to make the choice best suited for their system and also answers possible questions that might be arising during the process. It does not deal with "why you should choose Debian" but rather "which distribution of Debian".

 you can! Simply press the Rebuild button in the Control Panel and you will be able to select a new distribution. Be sure you have a backup of your data because this process will destroy any data that is on the server. The rebuild process does allow you to save you IP address.
