What is the difference between a boost inductor and a flyback inductor?

What is the context of the question?

And you normally need a transformer for flyback operation...

A boost inductor is a two terminal inductor.

A flyback inductor is a four terminal device. It consists of a two terminal inductor with an ideal transformer connected across it.

You magnetize it just like a boost inductor. But when the inductor demagnetizes, it does it through the transformer allowing you to provide isolation and transformation.
