WHAT DOES BOOTABLE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

bootable

Booting

In computing, booting is the initialization of a computerized system. The system can be a computer or a computer appliance. The booting process can be "hard", after electrical power to the CPU is switched from off to on, or "soft", when those power-on self-tests can be avoided. Soft booting can be initiated by hardware such as a button press, or by software command. Booting is complete when the normal, operative, runtime environment is attained. A boot loader is a computer program that loads an operating system or some other software for the computer after completion of the self-tests. Within the hard reboot process, it runs after completion of the self-tests, then loads and runs the software. A boot loader is loaded into main memory from persistent memory, such as a hard disk drive or, in some older computers, from a medium such as punched cards, punched tape, or magnetic tape. The boot loader then loads and executes the processes that finalize the boot.
