The performance opens with a boot loader that sets the groundwork for the board to be able to load the kernel. Just like an opening, the boot loader paves the way for the kernel, going as far to load it from a remote server into memory so it can be executed. After it’s in memory, the boot loader hands execution to the kernel and exits. The kernel then has its own bootstrapping process (which duplicates what the boot loader did in some cases) that readies the hardware, loads drivers, and starts its processes to manage the system. When it’s in a running state, the kernel hands off control to an init program. The kernel and init then share the stage until you shut down the system; when the system restarts, the performance begins again.
