BSP Boot Loader Frameworks (Compact 2013)


This section describes the two different boot loader frameworks included in Windows Embedded Compact 2013. The CE Boot framework, which was originally released in Compact 7, provides a customizable, production-quality boot loader and allows maximum code reuse. The BLCOMMON boot loader library is included to primarily support earlier versions of BSPs and older hardware platforms.
