Check out this page for words you don’t know: Terminology - CyanogenMod Wiki.

The short answer: ROM is the internal flash memory of your phone. All components of the OS reside in ROM including the HBOOT, which needs to be successfully updated to finish the process. An RUU (ROM Update Utility) is a downloadable program that updates the ROM on your phone from a Windows computer via USB cable.

You must update your bootloader by downloading and running the appropriate RUU from htcdev.com. Make sure that you have completely and correctly finished step 3B before trying 3C. Step 3B is the key to the whole process.
