Boot Partition or Volume

The volume, formatted with an NTFS, FAT, or FAT32 file system, that contains the Windows operating system and its support files. The boot volume can be in the same location as the system volume. In Windows, the system partition or volume is the one the computer starts from, while the boot volume is the one that has the operating system and support files.
