Up One Level


Boot

 

Starting up a PC or server. Verbal shorthand for 'Kick it 'til it wakes up'. The origin of this (strange) term is the recognition that booting or, system start up, is a process requiring a piece of 'bootstrap' code in the BIOS of the computer, which starts the loadup of the operating system.
