Abstract

IBM has created an alternative operating environment used for client self healing. However today it is very time consuming for a user to switch from the primary operating system to the alternative operating system. That is because you can't you must shut down or hibernate the primary operating system than reboot the alternative operating system. Shutting down and rebooting is very time consuming. Our invention will allow an almost instant switch from the primary to alternative operating environment regardless of hardware configuration changes.
