If a computer no longer boots up, often a rogue Registry setting is the culprit. In these cases you need an offline Registry editor, that is you have to edit the Registry from a second installation.  Although there are third party offline Registry editors, you can use regedit as an offline Registry editor. The procedure described here also works with Windows PE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) or Windows RE (Windows Recovery Environment).

Prepare Windows RE or Windows PE

  • Windows RE: You only need a Windows 7 or Windows Vista installation DVD. After you boot from the DVD, click “Next,” then click “Repair your computer,” then click “Next” (Use recovery tools), and then “Command Prompt.”

  • Windows PE: You can also use Windows PE to launch an offline Registry editor. Check out my article about creating a bootable WinPE USB flash drive for more information.
