CLASSIFICATION OF COMPUTER SOFTWARE

A computer without a software is valueless. Software makes a

computer perform operations. The diagram below shows the classification of software.

Joel L. Tiemsin / Computer Systems Servicing

SYSTEM SOFTWARE

System software are computer programs which facilitate the

use of computer by the user and to provide a platform for the

application software. These programs perform standard tasks

such as organizing and maintaining data files, translating programs written in various languages to a form that is

acceptable to the hardware, scheduling jobs as well as aiding

in other areas of computer operations.

Joel L. Tiemsin / Computer Systems Servicing

APPLICATION SOFTWARE

ASSEMBLING A COMPUTER SYSTEM

In this chapter, you will be assembling a functional computer system

with the minimum number of hardware. You need to have all the tools

and parts needed in the assembling process which will take you about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

When buying computer parts, you have to make sure that all parts are compatible with each other to avoid problems due to hardware incompatibility. Therefore, it is safer to buy computer parts in “barebones kit” where most of the computer parts, if not all, can be bought together like the system case, motherboard, power supply, CPU, hard drive and memory.

primary partition which will be recognized by Windows as 'partition 1'.

9. Type 'select partition 1' and press the enter key. This action prepares

‘partition 1' to be set as an active partition in the next step.

Joel L. Tiemsin / Computer Systems Servicing

10. Type 'active' and press Enter key. This activates current partition as

active.

11. Type 'format fs=ntfs quick' and press the enter key. This formats

the current partition as NTFS file system.

12. Type 'exit' and press the enter key. This will make you exit from the

DISKPART program. Don't close the Command Prompt instead. We

would still need it for next process.

Joel L. Tiemsin / Computer Systems Servicing

Step 2: Creating Boot Sector

1. Let’s assume that the flash / USB storage is in D: drive and the DVD

installer located on drive F:. The first step, we will navigate Command

Prompt to set installation DVD as its active directory.

2. By default, Command Prompt's active directory for Administrator

permission is on C:\Windows\System32>. We will navigate Command Prompt to set on DVD (F:) as its active directory. Just type F:' then press the enter key. This will change the active directory to F:.

4. Type 'bootsect /nt60 d:' and press the enter key. This creates a boot sector on D: drive (USB flash drive).

5. When done, type 'exit' and press the enter key to close the

Command Prompt. In this step, you were able to create a bootable USB

drive.

Joel L. Tiemsin / Computer Systems Servicing

Step 3: Copying Installation Files

1. To install Windows from a bootable USB drive, we just need to copy the whole installation files contained on the DVD installer to flash drive. To do this, open the Command Prompt as in previous steps.

Once it opens, type the command below and press the enter key:

it opens, type the command below and press the enter key: where, /E = Copies directories

where, /E = Copies directories and subdirectories including empty ones /H = Copies hidden and system files /F = Displays full source and destination file names while copying
