as a slave in another machine that has a bootable master (both are Windows XP). My original thought was to just turn the computer
on and boot, then find the registry on the slave drive, issue the command regedit [options] filename (filename on slave), and then
hack the bad keys out, delete some files on the slave, then put it back in the original computer, and it should be ok (of course
I need to change the jumper back to single).
My fear is that I will lose the boot sector's information. I just am not sure what to do - is this a good approach.
By the way, I have often used tools such as Ultimate Boot, HD Clone, etc.., and simply booted the CD and then examined drives. I like this
because, then there is no Windows at all.
Just curious, should I use the Windows approach or should I boot to Ultimate CD and delete the files and hack the registry there.
Keep in mind that the registry file .reg is really pretty much just a text file. I would probably open it in Linux even without any
sophisticated tool. I realize I should make a backup of the registry file first.
Just curious what you think I should do?
