 Post subject: Trying To Invoke Registry Restore

I just downloaded the UBCD Beta to try and use REGISTRY RESTORE to fix an XP Boot problem.

But I can't seem to find Registry Restore in the options.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanx in advance.

Sean

Probably you downloaded the wrong file (UBCD).

While you want UBCD4WIN:

Thanx for the fast reply..

I have downloaded both versions..

Let me explain my problem and maybe that will show how badly I messed things up.. :oops:

I have an XP machine that boots up to a black screen with just the mouse cursor.. I can move the cursor but nothing else shows up..

I have booted into safe mode and SAFE MODE indicators show up at the corners, but no task bar or icons show...

I have done a REPAIR with the XP Install disk to no avail..

GOOGLEing the problem, I read that the UBCD Boot disk will allow me to use REGISTRY RESTORE.

The ubcd50b7.iso doesn't appear to have the RESTORE program when I boot with it. And the UBCD4WinV322.exe must be installed (it looks like) to an XP machine, which I can't boot into with this particular machine..

Any ideas for me??

Thanx again for the reply..


Sean

UBCD4Win has a registry restore option.
You need to install UBCD4WinV322.exe on a PC with xp or vista. Then you need your windows XP install CD to make your own Windows live CD (the actual UBCD4Win iso).

OK, I'll give that a shot.... My main workstation (this one I am posting from) is a VISTA machine. I'll install the UBCD4WinV322.exe here and go from there.

Thanx again..

Much appreciated...
