Michael Nelson, Scott W Devine, Beng Hong Lim: Computer configuration for resource management in systems including a virtual machine. VMware, Jeffrey Pearce, November 1, 2005: US06961941 (165 worldwide citation)

A computer architecture includes a first operating system (COS), which may be a commodity operating system, and a kernel, which acts as a second operating system. The COS is used to boot the system as a whole. After booting, the kernel is loaded and displaces the COS from the system level, meaning t ...
