Windows Experts... Assistance Needed...

Recommended Posts

Ok this is a tricky one. I messed up my registry today with a regedit utility ive been making in VB6, long story short, I need to backup my registry from a backup copy, but I can't log into windows. gives me a nvcchflt.sys not found error ,Windows repair won't help in this situation, i just need to backup from what i have. Ive hooked my hard-drive into another pc and im waiting for possible help. I would install another copy of windows but i have no disc and my burner is messed up.... help!!!

safe mode should do it.. i think safe mode will use a backup if there is one

well the backup is in .reg form, but I believe if I make a batchfile as so

 

 

copy D:\windows2\system32\config\system C:\Documents and Settings\blahshizzlews\Desktop\Backup\system.bak

copy D:\windows2\system32\config\software C:\Documents and Settings\blahshizzlews\Desktop\Backup\software.bak

copy D:\windows2\system32\config\sam C:\Documents and Settings\blahshizzlews\Desktop\Backup\sam.bak

copy D:\windows2\system32\config\security C:\Documents and Settings\blahshizzlews\Desktop\Backup\security.bak

copy D:\windows2\system32\config\default C:\Documents and Settings\blahshizzlews\Desktop\Backup\default.bak

 

 

delete D:\windows2\system32\config\system

delete D:\windows2\system32\config\software

delete D:\windows2\system32\config\sam

delete D:\windows2\system32\config\security

delete D:\windows2\system32\config\default

 

 

then copy the repair folder files, it will create a minimalistic registry that will let me boot into windows, then if merge my backup and restart all my games and stuff should work... if this works then ill make a program that does this automatically.

 

 

If I would have known I had this coming, I would have done system restore before i started my computer... I ran this beta program on my friends computer and it sped things up quite a bit, but then i tried improving the code, not a good idea...

I know you said that you don't have a cd but, you can rebuild the registry using the recovery console. Also if you borrow somones CD you can go through setup until you get to "Repair a windows installtion" ,(not recovery console.)

 

If you can't find a cd from a buddy there I'll send you one.
