Abstract

Wireless network is crucial for the Mobile Transparent Computing (MTC), in which a mobile device without any Operating System (OS) support needs to load the demanded OSes and applications through accessing the wireless network connection. In this paper, a lightweight approach based on the Boot Management System (BMS) was proposed to ensure the wireless network connection before booting OS. In BMS, the Virtual File System (VFS) technology was used to drive the wireless network card and establish a stable network connection. A prototype of the BMS was tested on ARM11 hardware platform and the results demonstrate the validity of the BMS.
