Re: "a boot kernel and options" and " This will start the boot load sequence"

a boot kernel and options : it means "a boot kernel and  kernel
options" or "a boot kernel and boot parameters"?

I would think the second, but as the text is specific to architecture
IA64, I can not be entirely sure.

Here you have the noun _kernel_: that's the essential thing.

However, it's not just a kernel, it's a specific type of kernel, called a _boot_ kernel. Here the word boot acts as an adjective, describing the noun kernel.

Therefore the options or parameters (used loosely as synonyms) should belong to the boot-type kernel. They should be boot-kernel options (or parameters).

I hope that helps...
