Inside Macintosh: Files /
Chapter 5 - Disk Initialization Manager / Disk Initialization Manager Reference

Loading and Unloading the Disk Initialization Manager

Even a user with a hard disk drive might occasionally use a floppy disk to start up the computer. When you call the Disk Initialization Manager to initialize a disk, it might need to read a resource from the System resource file. If the disk containing the System resource file is not already mounted, the user might need to switch disks, and system software might accidentally try to reinitialize the startup volume. The DILoad procedure allows you to avoid this problem by ensuring that the resources the Disk Initialization Manager needs are preloaded into memory. The DIUnload procedure reverses the effects of DILoad.
