Abstract

Disclosed is a method of systems management utilizing removable memory. This solution involves using easily accessible removable memory to store system logs and facilitate systems management of unbootable computers. The main point of this invention is to save all information necessary to analyze problems with a computer into a removable system management memory when the system is working normally. This is a much more cost effective solution than what is currently available. It also would make the data from the system accessible without having to go over a network, if the user has physical access to the system.
