You make a fair point here, but I wanted to do something to get the system started. My intention was simply to nobble the malware executables.
a. IMO...running a scan for malware by using a second system...has no impact on registry items affected by malware. Windows will not allow registry entries to be removed unless the registry is being used by the system employed, ditto for system files.
From my OP the keyboard and mouse (bog standard USB) were not recognised by Windows on startup. Again, my intention was simply to fix that problem, so that I could run scans on the local machine in safe mode. And that problem is now fixed. I can use the KB and mouse, but Windows won't let me log in.
b. Doing a repair install...is not a useful strategy for dealing with an infected system. Such may be useful when the system is clean, not before.
