What is Bootable Disc?
Optical discs that can be used to start a system are termed bootable. Technically, these discs follow the El Torito extension of the ISO 9660 file format; any motherboard that is compatible with this standard recognises optical drives as a bootable device, and can pass on control to the optical drive to boot the system. Today, bootable optical disks are the norm; you won’t find bootable floppy disks except in a few rare cases.
