 for boot virus
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  boot virus
     An MS-DOS virus that infects the boot record program on
     hard disks and floppy disks or the master boot record on
     hard disks.  The virus gets loaded into memory before MS-DOS
     and takes control of the computer, infecting any floppy disks
     subsequently accessed.  An infected boot disk may stop the
     computer starting up at all.
