El Torito

The format developed by Phoenix Technologies and IBM that has become the standard for creating bootable CD-ROMs on the Intel platform. El Torito provides only the format. In order to make a CD-ROM bootable, the correct boot images must be placed on the disc, and the target computer must be El Torito compliant (all current systems are). El Torito is Spanish for "the little bull." See bootable CD-ROM.
