The Windows Registry restoring is fairly easy but not always the cure...
table, or PDF was removed because it will not display on your device. Check back on a PC....
There are ways
to fix the registry that may or may not recover your OS.
Anytime you modify the registry you are taking the chance that you may have to reinstall the OS.
Troubleshoot, repair, maintain, upgrade & secure...
So you did a mod and it BSOD on you now you need to recover the OS.
Ok, there are three ways of getting the registry back to where it was before you blew it up:
- Use the boot cd ERD Commander, it has a registry editor and you can "Import" registry files with it.
- Use BartPE it also has a registry editor that will "Import" registry files.
- Use a Windows 7 ERD and copy the files you backed up with in to the
- Or my favorite: Use a Dual Boot system.
With ERD Commander or BartPE once you have started the computer open the registry editor and from the file menu select import, then browse to your files and do the deed.
If you copied the original hive files from the C:\WINDOWS\repair directory and the C:\WINDOWS\system32\config directory once you boot the computer with a boot cd/dvd/external hard drive you can replace the files in those two directories, faster, simpler.
Note: If you Dual Boot you can not use the registry editor on the effected OS registry, it will not load in to the registry editor. You would have to replace the registry files with the originals you copied to your external device.
Restart the computer, did it recover?
No, then you will have to reinstall the OS or put your image on the partition...
