There are some keys in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager, including
BootExecute and PendingFileRenameOperations.
Which starts first ? BootExecute or PendingFileRenameOperations ???

According to a Sysinternals Process Monitor bootlog (and unsurprisingly...) BootExecute start first then PendingFileRenameOperations...

In my log

BootExecute start at 18:43:45, 4660048

PendingFileRenameOperations start at 18:43:45, 4861988

BootExecute will start first (most likely because it can be used to do jobs to bring the file system in order, e.g. do a checkdisk, complete partition management, etc.), without which there would be no renaming because no file system.
