From the post at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic443089.html, James says to do the following:
"For this we need to see a specific value in your registry.
If you are comfortable navigating the registry using regedit.exe then go to the key
and let us know the value of BootExecute.
If you aren't experienced with using regedit.exe then you can do this to get the value...
Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quote box below into it:
>BEregQuery.txt (REG QUERY "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager" /v BootExecute)
Apparently, the above is assuming one can boot into Win7, but since I cannot do that I would need another way to access Win7's Registry. Can I do this from CMD in Win8 or do I need to use an install disc to get a command prompt and change to the drive containing Win7?
It would also be helpful to know what the registry values which should be in the registry are so I can get this done in one session.
