This is the fourth phase of the installation, which involves final file copy, configuration, and removal of temporary files. The Setup program copies all remaining files to the hard disk. These include bitmap files, accessories, and services or component files that are either installed into service or left dormant until activated. Setup then applies configuration settings specified during earlier interactions.
The new configuration is saved in the registry databases and on disk to be used for the configuration after the computer starts anew. At this time, all temporary files are removed from the computer. After this activity, the machine is rebooted.
