Solved Trying to edit XP registry file with bartPE

July 18, 2012 at 06:37:23
Specs: Windows XP
Gentlemen,
I do have a corrupt register file (and I do know the problem). Booting with bartPE works
fine but I can't access my hard drive = can't read or write the register.

Have I missed something when creating my bartPE disk??

/Br

✔ Best Answer
BARTPE is a multi-use tool, not just a registry editor (I think it still uses REGEDIT but I haven't used it for ages). There are a few tutorials around about how to use it like this one:

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/peboot.htm

There are also other tools that do the same job without needing an XP disk - the one I use which, AFAIK is still available, is the Offline NT registry editor by Petter Hagen (a Google search will find it) & there should be an FAQ page there.

You have to understand that BartPE fools the xp system. The live system has a registry and so does the hard drive install. You use a registry edit tool either with barts or an add on to import the registry you want off the hard drive.

AFAIK made the trick, my problem with bartPE was that it did not find my hard drive at all - so tools or not, when I could not access the disk it did not matter what kind of tools I had.
Using the Microsoft tool did what I wanted, connected to C: and gave me the means of editing the register file.
Thank's "jefro" who lead me on the right track on a prev. thread and thank's "johnr" who started to talk about AFAIK.
THANK*S GUYS!!!

Emergency Boot CD contains an offline Registry editor which is able to modify the registry of any Windows installation, including unbootable ones. It was very useful in similar situation:
