Powerful testing for non-booting systems.

BootPath Diagnostics allow end users to troubleshoot systems that fail to boot into any operating system. BootPath Diagnostics are often integrated into the system ROM as a BIOS extension, making them available even when all storage devices are unavailable, and may also be used from a CD, USB drive, network location, or disk partition. This enables end users to better diagnose non-booting systems and provides savings in associated support and warranty costs.
