As you can see from the listing, there are a number of additional entries. Each entry has a specific purpose, and lists values that you can set, including the following:

Recovery Environment

In the Windows Boot Loader entries, you'll find entries that have a description of "Windows Recovery Environment." The Windows Recovery Environment is a custom preinstallation environment that includes components for recovery and startup troubleshooting. To enable rapid recovery, the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) is installed with Windows 7 automatically. Normally, Windows RE is installed on a hard disk partition other than the one containing the Windows installation. This ensures that Windows RE is separate from the operating system.

Resume from Hibernate

The Resume from Hibernate entry shows the current configuration for the resume feature in Windows 7. The preoperating system boot utility that controls resume is Winresume.exe, which in this example is stored in the C:\Windows\system32 folder. The hibernation data, as specified in the filepath parameter, is stored in the Hiberfil.sys file in the root folder on the filedevice (c: in this example). Because the resume feature works differently if the computer has Physical Address Extension (PAE) and debugging enabled, these options are tracked by the PAE and Debugoptionenabled parameters.

Windows Memory Tester

The Windows Memory Tester entry shows the current configuration for the Windows Memory Diagnostics utility. The preoperating system boot utility that controls memory diagnostics is Memtest.exe, which in this example is stored in the \boot folder of the hidden System Reserved partition. Because the memory diagnostics tool is designed to detect bad memory by default, the badmemoryaccess parameter is set to yes by default.

EMS Settings

The EMS Settings entry shows the configuration used when booting with Emergency Management Services. Individual Windows Boot Loader entries control whether EMS is enabled.

Debugger Settings

The Debugger Settings entry shows the configuration used when booting with the debugger turned on. Individual Windows Boot Loader entries control whether the debugger is enabled. When debug booting is turned on, Debugtype sets the type of debugger as SERIAL, 1394, or USB. With SERIAL debugging, Debugport specifies the serial port being used as the debugger port and Baudrate specifies the baud rate to be used for debugging. With 1394 debugging, you can use Channel to set the debugging channel. With USB debugging, you can use Targetname to set the USB target name to be used for debugging.
