corrupted registry hive..3 options


1. insert xp cd and do a system restore at cmd
2. insert xp cd/boot and do a repair install
3. slave drive to a second machine and copy the software/security hive from the backup folder

sure if ye have a second computer ye can download an iso from torrents (Which is perfectly legal btw even though Eircom block Pirate Bay and peoples access to legal files)

Using something like imageburn (Easiest, simple free iso burner) burn to a cd-rom and ye can use the existing key which should be labeled somewhere on the machine.

If ye can't see the key then ye need to load the software hive into a program like product key to get the key ( Needed if ye have to use option 2 as ye have to input key after a repair install)

To do that ye need to slave the drive to a second machine (From the broken machine) open productkey/go into the slave drive and load the hive from system32/config to get key (Load external hive in product key)

Save as text file/ repair install and use key to activate.....
