The Macbook roars to life with the sound of a chorus of angels. At least, that’s how I think about the bootstrap process that initializes the power of the bootROM, does POST, and then does the EFI boot chime — which is the chorus in question here. Of course, it still then has to launch the kernel, the encryption module, then the login module, then the user environment. The whole process takes 10 seconds on a slow day, and then the computer is ready to think.
