المستخدمون المتقدمون لنظام ويندوز لابد أنهم مروا بالقوائم الشهيرة التي تظهر لك حين تضغط على زر F8 أثناء عملية إقلاع ويندوز والتي لم تتغير منذ وقت طويل، فقد ظلت مايكروسوفت تستخدم القوائم النصية البيضاء والسوداء دون أي تجديد يذكر، لهذا قررت الشركة أن تقوم بإعادة تصميم واجهة الإقلاع والقوائم المتقدمة أيضا في ويندوز 8 (لم لا وقد قاموا بإعادة تصميم واجهة النظام).

القوائم الجديدة أجمل وأكثر نظافة من التصاميم القديمة وهي تدعم التعامل إما عبر شاشة اللمس او لوحة المفاتيح العادية وهي تحتوي المزيد من الخيارات المتقدمة التي تسمح لك التفاعل مع النظام أو إصلاحه وحتى الإقلاع من سواقات خارجية.

 Windows 8 Boot Screens Now Better Looking And Simpler, Taking Cues From Metro


Windows 8 Metro Style Boot Menu



Windows 8 boot screens have gone through a re-haul and you will no longer see the scrolling White on Black text when you load the OS. Instead, you will be presented with a high resolution logo of your computer manufacturer, followed by the Windows boot screen. You will still get to have boot options and they will be looking very Metro.

Microsoft has finally upgraded the age-old boot screen from Windows and has made it more in tune with the times. Instead of seeing the usual text during the POST (Power On Self Test) phase, you will see your manufacturer’s logo. Whilst that is happening, the actual OS boot process will kick-in in the background. By doing this, the user will be smoothly transferred in to the Windows boot environment without seeing much of the barebones processes in the background.

As someone who known people who regularly get scared looking at fast scrolling text on a dark screen, it will be welcome change for the average user who has never had to go through a Command Line Interface. And they really shouldn’t have to. What Microsoft has done here is to make the pre-boot and boot environment merge in seamlessly without forcing the user to stare at really low-level machine messages that most Windows users wouldn’t understand anyway
.


Advanced Options Are Still Available


However, this prettier boot screen does not take away from your options. You will still presented with OS choices if you have a multi-boot and you also choose from other boot options like secure-boot and booting in to Command Prompt.

All of these options will be presented to you on an easy understand Blue Screen (not of death, by the way) with Metro style large, easy to see icons with description texts around them. They are basic but they are more graphic than text and finally ushers the Windows bootloader in to the current century. Since Windows 8 is designed to be run on devices that don’t have a keyboard, the design is also touch friendly. Which again ensures that information density is also very low onscreen, which makes it a much less daunting task to look at the bootloader screens fo the average user.
 

The UI Stays On Even Inside Advanced Options



Even if your boot device is an USB key, you no longer have to dreg through deep menus to turn that on. The straight forward interface remains with you even when choose a USB key as your boot source. In fact, the touch UI and some of the basic features are also available at low level environments like the recovery environment that is basically running command prompt. The idea is to maintain the experience that the user would come to expect from a Windows 8 touch device. The touch interface will work at the lower level so that even when recovering, the user should not have to go back a keyboard to make all the necessary changes. You will have an onscreen keyboard to help you along with the Command Prompt commands.
If you look at the video below, you will see how something as current as an on-screen touch keyboard and a windows with command prompt look like together.
