Prepare for the CompTIA A+ Core 2 (220-1002) exam. Learn about power protection for PCs, implementing mass storage, getting a PC to boot, and installing Windows.
- Hey everybody, it's your pal, Mike Meyers, welcoming you to Cert Prep: 2 Implementation Considerations. This is the second of eight courses, which collectively will help you pass the CompTIA A+ Core 2 2201002 exam. Now, when I say implementation considerations, we're talkin' about the initial build, as we begin to implement the parts that we need to get a new system, and the things that we need to consider to make that happen. So for example, we're going to be touching a little bit on power supplies, primarily electrical basics more than anything else. We're also going to be actually implementing mass storage. So hopefully you've already taken the CompTIA A+ 2201001 courses, and now we're going to take that knowledge, and we're going to talk about what does it really take to have a hard drive or an SSD, to get it actually up and running and troubleshooting within our systems themselves? Now, once that's done, we're going to be talking about building a PC. In particular, we're talking about building desktop systems. There's all kinds of desktop systems. Maybe you're a gamer, maybe you're doing graphics design, maybe you're just running office. So we're going to talk about what type of hardware considerations you need to be able to implement these different types of desktop systems. Now, if you're following along in my popular A+ book from McGraw Hill, you're going to be wanting to watch chapters 7, 9, and 10.
