Which location on a hard disk is used by the BIOS to search for operating system instructions in order to boot a PC?

  • the Windows partition
  • the extended partition
  • the logical drive
  • the active partition
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    On a hard disk, up to four primary partitions can be created. Alternatively, up to three primary partitions plus an extended partition can be created, and the extended partition can further be divided into multiple logical drives, if desired. Only one primary partition can be made the active partition at any time. It is the active partition that used by the operating system to boot a PC.
