From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :
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.
