While I know of mainframes and minicomputers that allowed storing a word from the front panel, I don't know of any early microcomputer that allowed storing more than an 8-bit byte at a time. Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 21:33, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
So what was the word size on those microcomputers? The 8008 manual speaks of "8-bit words", so an 8008-based microcomputer that allows storing only an 8-bit unit at a time does allow storing a word from the front panel. Guy Harris (talk) 23:34, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Secondary Program Loader article provides very little content even for a stub-class article, with only one reference, so—unless someone wants to expand it further—it should be merged into Booting. Also, content of the article is pretty much a simple copy&paste from the provided reference. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 22:53, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
