Access IBM support application for the Microsoft Windows operating system and the Predesktop Area (a help, recovery, configuration, and diagnostic environment that can be opened even if Microsoft windows won't.) These tools and instructions enable you to tailor various aspects of the environment to fit your in-house needs.
The Predesktop Area -- a graphical user interface that can open even if Windows will not start -- can be accessed when you choose to interrupt the normal startup sequence to change BIOS settings, for instance. If you are unable to start normally, IBM offers several applications in the Predesktop Area that can help get you up and running again.
