Real simple:

The installed operating system matches the hardware upon which it is installed.


The onboard components match the CPU and it's capabilites. You'd have no luck if you could somehow install an intel CPU on an AMD mother board.

When you boot the system, it really doesn't have to ask as it has no choices in its world.
