If you are developing a device that uses Windows CE, you will need to use DOS to boot the OS the first time. DOS is the base-level operating system that runs before Windows CE can be initialised. To boot Windows CE from DOS, you need to use one of two boot loaders; both are contained in the Windows CE installer package. This installation presumes that you have Windows CE loaded to a USB stick, as is standard for Windows CE deployment.
