I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz, 7 GB of memory

I received a blue screen with the title of bad_pool_header.

I ran the windows 7 repair - did not correct - blue screen

I ran the windows 7 repair from the original installation disk - did not work - blue screen

The current blue screen title is registry_error

I can not run any registry repair software because it will not boot

Is there a way to create a boot CD with registry repair software installed?

I installed a new boot drive with a copy of window 7 pro 32 bit and connected the original boot drive as a slave and I can read the drive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jim

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

This link may be listed for windows XP, but it could apply for any NTFS file system.


I have seriously been trying to find a better solution, however there is not much information on recovering a registry without an current backup taken from the registry before the actual corruption took place.

Only thing I can suggest is putting the Windows 7 installation disk in and try doing an install, just do not allow it to format the hard drive, the point of doing this is to re-install Windows 7 over Windows 7, if you do it correctly, it will not remove your current Windows 7 programs and directories.

Just do what-ever it takes not to have Windows installation erase or create a new folder and you should be fine.

There is a way to copy back the registry hives; either with the help of the command prompt (windows 7 DVD) or with a bootable disk.

Please let me know if you need still help with this.

regards, Elise
