"Dead Server" Registry Editing

By genoj ·
I have an NT Server with 2 bootable partitions. The registry on Partition 1 is blitzed. I can see partition 1 when I boot from partition 2. How can I edit the registry (system and user hives) from Partition 1 while booted from Partition 2.

Try the tool at http://www.registrytool.com
may cost a bit though.

Alternatively is to upgrade the partion with a new install or if that doesn't work to start install and recreat and reformat the partition if you don't need anything on that partof the system

good luck

Use REGEDT32, click Registry, Load Hive and then from the Explorer window, navigate to the directory for the dead partition. Pick the file you need (ntuser.dat or whatever) from the appropriate profile or system directory.

Further info can be found on TechNet in article #Q168646. You can find other related articles by searching on "parallel installation".
