Sure it is.

ARC is a specification layed out by a group of manufacturers that no longer exits called the Advanced Computer Environment project. They basically arranged a set of hardware and firmware to make up a computing machine that would that would conform to this platform specification.

This ARC group laid out some specification on how their envisioned system is supposed to work. Part of that specification details how to boot the system, which involves something called an ARC Path as a standard, abstract naming convention for drive paths. Microsoft chose this ARC Path naming convention as the mechanism to use in their boot.ini configuration file.

Take heed of the first line in that linked page (emphasis added):

Windows 2000 uses the Advanced Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) naming convention to define the path to a Windows 2000 installation.
