IPL is an acronym (pronounced "eye-pee-ell") for Initial Program Load, and is the process where the hardware initiates the loading of the base operating system.

IPL can be used

  • as a verb ("IPL the system")
    • with past tense ("then we IPLed")
    • and present tense ("while we were IPLing")
  • as a noun ("after the next IPL.")

On other systems, this is called the "Bootup" or "Bootstrap" process.
