boot: v.,n. [techspeak; fromby one's bootstraps’] To load and
initialize the operating system on a machine. This usage is no longer
jargon (having passed into techspeak) but has given rise to some
derivatives that are still jargon.The derivative reboot implies
that the machine hasn't been down for long, or that the boot is a
bounce (sense 4) intended to clear some state of
wedgitude. This is sometimes used of human thought
processes, as in the following exchange: “You've lost me.”
OK, reboot. Here's the theory....”This term is also found in the variants cold boot (from power-off condition) and
warm boot (with the CPU and all
devices already powered up, as after a hardware reset or software
crash).Another variant: soft boot,
reinitialization of only part of a system, under control of other software
still running: “If you're running the mess-dos
emulator, control-alt-insert will cause a soft-boot of the emulator, while
leaving the rest of the system running.”Opposed to this there is hard
boot, which connotes hostility towards or frustration with the
machine being booted: “I'll have to hard-boot this losing
Sun.” “I recommend booting it hard.” One often
hard-boots by performing a power cycle.
