well basicly what happens is when u start your computer the first thing it reads is your flash memory (witch normaly contains your bios) the bios controlls all the hardware untill the operating system takes over. after that has compleated the system then starts to read the hard drive and looks for boot secters thats right at the start of the HD. this is where the NTldr is located. Ntldr then tells the system where all the files are needed to boot windows and then u get the screen that shows the loading bar.

there is bit more too it but i'll have to read up on it to explain it to u more deeply

^Well technically the later ones are based off Unix but yeah Unix is good to mention but it's not really used that much as linux has pretty much superseded it.
