The main file in the core is /Programs/BootScripts/<version></version>/bin/BootDriver. It is the script called by init (from the Sysvinit package), as indicated in the file /System/Settings/inittab.

One of the first things done by the BootDriver is to load the boot theme file indicated in /System/Settings/BootOptions (see Configuring boot themes). This ensures that the boot procedure will behave accordingly to the user's desire.

Then, depending on what is going on (system startup, shutdown...), the BootDriver script runs one of the files in /System/Settings/BootScripts, as described in section Customizing the initialization.
