Restoring just the registry from another W2K or XP


Recommended Posts

Perhaps I missed this discussion, and those that I read left me confused. If my W2K will not boot, and I have a 2nd installation (aka minimal Rescue system which has Retrospect installed), how can I restore JUST the original system's registry/system state? Since the registry are NOT "file backed up", but rather contained in the Snapshot of the Boot volume, how can I have Retrospect tell it to restore this info from the Snapshot to the registry hives located where I tell it (and not the current registry, which would be the Rescue system)?


This question is for V6 AND V5, as I am using V5 at present, but will be migrating to V6 within the next 2 months.


Thank you.
