    Boot basically means to turn the device on.

    Very very old term in the IT world. I remember it as far back as the IBM 360 days.

    From a phrase 'to pick one's self up by their bootstraps'. The term was originally bootstrapping, I think, but was shortened to boot.

    Quicker to say "boot it" versus "turn the device on".
