Non-blocking I/O

If I set a file descriptor non-blocking and issue I/O operation on a slow, or 
heavy loaded disk, how will this affect the process and threads while kernel 
loads data from disk into core?

Will it block the thread doing I/O or the entire process?
Or will it return with EAGAIN immediately without blocking?
