How to Reboot a System by Using the reboot Command

Use this procedure to reboot a running system to a multiuser state (run level 3).

Note - On x86 platforms, using the reboot command initiates a fast reboot of the system, bypassing the BIOS or UEFI firmware and certain boot processes. To perform a standard reboot of an x86 based system that has the Fast Reboot feature enabled, use the –p option with the reboot command. See Initiating a Standard Reboot of a System That Has Fast Reboot Enabled.
