You can't edit the registry of an O/S that is not booted into...I think I tried that earlier this year (just to see if it could be done).

The only registry files that will be shown are those of the operating system that is open.

There are others who claim otherwise, but...I'm from the Show-Me State and I believe what I've experienced :thumbsup:.

When you tried you didn't did your best I think, cause I managed how to edit the registry with the hard drive on slave.

It's good to believe what you have experienced, I do that too, but sometimes you have to take risks!

I'll post sort of guide which I wrote and it worked successfully.

A guide to edit the registry of a slaved Hard Drive on a XP System.

NOTE 1 : to edit the system hive the regedit will ask you for the key name; search it from the
	   following site
	   URL : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724877(VS.85).aspx

NOTE 2 : The table that shows the Registry Hive and the supporting Files is described in the
following line.
Registry Hive : The Hive you want to edit
Supporting Files : Is the Key Name that regedit will ask for the hive you wish to edit.

Let's Begin,

Go to 
Start > run > type regedit > click on machine

File > Load Hive
Browse to the slaved Hard Drive; Windows > System 32 > Config > choose the hive you want to edit and 
search the key name from the above site.

You have full control of the registry of the Hard drive that is slaved connected.
DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISKS!

I like to write how I solved my own and others problems, the above is one of them. :thumbsup:

I never try to rescue a damaged or screwed up registry...it's too easy for me to just reinstall (I maintain data backups).

Glad you found a way, thanks for posting it, happy computing :thumbsup:.
