What are operating systems?



Operating systems are mainly a collection of setup files, which needs to be installed in a computer to run it efficiently. When we buy any new desktops or laptops, the first thing we need to do is to install an operating system immediately in it, according to your requirements. Operating systems are generally installed in C drive as it suits well with the other program files. It can also be installed in other disk drives. But we recommended installing it in C drive for better results.



Why we need operating systems?



We need to install software and drivers to run computer properly according to your need. There are several drivers like audio drivers, VGA drivers, and USB drivers to get efficient output from the computer. We may need to install application software, programming software, antivirus software, etc and we cannot install the software without installing the operating system. Windows® can’t boot any operating system installed in it. Even if we want to use a calculator, we can’t use that without installing the operating system. So the operating system is the most essential application for any desktop, computer or laptop. Several operating systems are compatible with some specific laptops or computers.



Instructions to install the operating system


There are some steps, which need to be followed at the time of install operating systems. There might some problems can occur at the time of installing. So we need to be aware of such problems, because if the operating system is not installed properly in computer then some programs might not run properly. At first the disc of the operating system need to be inserted. After that a window will show various options like install Windows®, repair Windows®, etc. If one wants to install the operating system then the first option should be selected and if one wants to repair any pre-installed version of Windows® then the repair option should be followed. Then there will be an option to select the disk location where the OS will be installed. If anyone wants to make a new partition of hard disk, then there will be an option for that. After selecting the disk location the further processes will be done automatically just by clicking some “next” buttons. After installing the OS the computer should be restarted once to take effect.
