If I understand your question right...

This link looks appropriate. Keep in mind I hold no responsibility for the accuracy of the material, I just spent about 2 minutes googling... :-)

Anyway, I'm not familiar with bootloader code-uboot. Is that a program?

Hope I've helped some!

Well, uboot is boot loader used in embedded system.

In general purpose systems, booting process is done by BIOS and bootloadeer (GRUB / LILO)
These tasks are handled by UBoot in embedded systems.
