Hi I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question but if not pls point me to the proper place pls. :)

This is for Novell for a desktop computer with no server and running just on windows 7.

Like to ask how does novell secure the booting enviroment when the computer is turned on? Can users enter f8, advance safe mode, run the CD drive, etc and bypass novell secruity to change the settings? I assume the admin can set restrictions so users cannot use these functions right?

Does these function edit the windows reg to block this or does the progammers have to write a whole new code for windows 7 to enable these function to be denied unless given access? Like to know if windows is hack or if a new code is written to enable this function?

Thanks and hope to know the answer?
