I would like to edit my registry. so i have been reading up on backing it up. one thing that was in the instructions was to have a boot disk made in case you needed to restore your back up. I insert the floppy into the drive and it says can't find a file needed.put in win me disk, but in the space for the path is d win 98. and when I do insert disk it runs for aways then about 16% done it hangs again wanting another file. my ? is .. can I find theese files I need online somewhere as they don't seem to be in my win me or my win 98 upgrade cd,s.. I am running an amdk6 500mgs with 120mgs ram 4ghd built by an shadetree mom and pop that is now in the wind. the cds are burns and seem to be missing some files.

Just make sure you have backup before you make any changes in your registry.. :thumbsup:

problems .. I downloaded the me-boot file to download folder.. placed floppy in drive and opened the file as per inst. seem to be writing to floppy just fine till reaching a point where it stops and has an error pop up disk head 58 is damaged. have tried several floppy's have reformatted floppy's have re-downloaded files. when I put the uncompleted disk in the a drive and click on props it says that the disk is full. however the file I have downloaded from boot disk.com says that it is only 684 KB.the floppy says that it is1.38mg how do I know if I have all the files I need loaded on my floppy? can I go ahead and try to start up with this floppy and see if it will give me the restore registry option. and then? I have not changed anything in my reg. I have just backed up what I have now.

Myzr
Win 98 has 4 backup copies of the registery already stored in the
C:\windows\Sysbckup folder. They are labeled rb000 thru rb004. Look them up in explorer.
Go to the microsoft help and support site http://www.support.microsoft.com/ and look up knowledge base article Q221512. This will explain how to restore the registery manually. It works well. I have used it often succesfully. You do need a 98 boot disk though to accomplish this.
