The computer that I use mostly is broken. On it there was installed Windows 7. Now I'm trying to make work that installation of Windows 7 on another computer. If someone remembers well the procedure to follow,that has been invented on 2009 by karyonix and other members of this forum,it is about to :
a) copy two files on the disk where windows 7 is installed,exactly on windowssystem32 The first is called usbbootwatcher.conf and this is the content :
[usbstor] Start@REG_DWORD=0 Group@REG_SZ="SCSI miniport" [usbehci] Start@REG_DWORD=0 Group@REG_SZ="Boot Bus Extender" [usbohci] Start@REG_DWORD=0 Group@REG_SZ="Boot Bus Extender" [usbuhci] Start@REG_DWORD=0 Group@REG_SZ="Boot Bus Extender" [usbhub] Start@REG_DWORD=0 Group@REG_SZ="System Bus Extender"
the second is called usbbootwatcher.exe
b) write this code inside the registry :
REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetservicesUsbBootWatcherService] "Type"=dword:00000010 "Start"=dword:00000002 "ErrorControl"=dword:00000000 "ImagePath"=hex(2):25,53,79,73,74,65,6d,52,6f,6f,74,25,5c,73,79,73,74,65,6d,33, 32,5c,55,73,62,42,6f,6f,74,57,61,74,63,68,65,72,2e,65,78,65,00 "DisplayName"="Usb Boot Watcher Service" "ObjectName"="LocalSystem" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlSafeBootMinimalUsbBootWatcherService] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlSafeBootNetworkUsbBootWatcherService] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetservicespciide] "Start"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetservicesintelide] "Start"=dword:00000000
I followed this procedure a lot of times,but always while Windows 7 was running. And it worked fine. Now I would like to do it editing the registry in offline mode,because,as I said my primarily computer does not turn on. For who doesn't know how to edit the registry in offline mode,this is a good article to read : http://4sysops.com/a...gistry-editor/. The problem is that when I try to edit the registry offline, normally there is no CurrentControlset key active,so I can't add that code. If I write it from scratch it does not work anyway. In fact when I try to boot Windows 7,it says : REG_INITIALIZATION_FAILED..
