A boot disk (boot disk) is used for an emergency start, or as a rescue disk, when the system is not working properly!
The use of boot disks is coming to an end, as the other higher capacity media such as CD-ROMs or USB flash drives are available for booting.
Info: A "bootable floppy disk" refers to a floppy disk. When referring to a CD or DVD, it is referred to as a "boot CD" or, for example, "recover DVD / CD".
A bootable floppy disk, also known as a startup disk or boot diskette, contains special files that the computer needs to boot into an operating system. If the bootable media is a removable media device such as a floppy disk or CD-ROM, it usually bypasses the hard disk, depending on the settings in the BIOS. Typically, this disk is used to check the computer or allow the user to copy files when a computer fails.
