    I’m new in non-intel architecture and I’m very interested in MIPS. Currently I’m developing simple kernel for educational purpose. In intel, boot process started by the BIOS, bootstrap code loaded from first sector of disk and placed at 0x7c00. Then, how about MIPS?



    The default boot exception vector is 0xBFC0 0000 which is where the CPU will start fetching instructions at power up or reset.

    There are numerous docs available online but I suggest you have a look at our Training Material, specifically Memory Map starting at 4:15.
