File Name: BootConfigComperator
File Submitter: ReTokener
File Submitted: 09 Oct 2020
File Updated: 10 Oct 2020
File Category: Boot tools

Assumption:
You have two different Operating Systems (Windows).
One of them is booting well - the other does not (maybe BlueScreen).
You suspect a missing or incorrect configured boot driver service.

Use BootConfigComperator to compare these startup configurations.

- Make shure you can access the non-booting Windows system.
- Start BootConfigComperator as Administrator. (Win8 and beyond)
Reference 'CurrentControlSet' of your booting system is set to first Input.
- Select [Edit]-[Offline Windows]
- Navigate and select 'Offline Windows' directory.
Active 'ControlSet000n' of remote Windows system is set to second Input.
- Click [Read/Compare/Edit] to see values-table. Look for 'Diverse=1'.
- Select mis-configured boot driver (if any) from the table and press [Run User Func].
- Set new valuename (REG-DWORD) to match correct one.
- Click [OK] to write to Registry.
- Click [Cancel] to open Registry and edit manually.

If any mis-configured driver was the reason for non booting system your problem might be fixed.

Special Features:
- to filter the 'usual suspects' e.g. disk drivers, provide a file with a list,
name it BootConfigComperator.ini to be auto-recognized by the program at start.
- there is a chance to install a sample file [Help]-[Install Config Sample].
- use any config-file of this kind as parameter, e.g. 'BootConfigComperator.exe B:\myConfig.ini'.
- if filter is loaded, it is indicated in the GUI.
- use [Help]-[Debug Mode] to display error messages when loading offline Registry fails.
- to edit 'CurrentControlSet' leave empty second Input.


Hope this helps to get some non booting system started.

Regards T.

Thanks for this Quite Interesting App  :)

 

It will be better when BootConfigComperator_x64.exe is Auto launched as Administrator, which is required to make Offline Windows Selection valid.

 

This can be simply achieved by using in AutoIt3 code e.g. as first line 

#RequireAdmin

With this line added to the AutoIt3 code the program is always launched as Administrator

 

Just did some preliminary test and I think the program can be quite useful.  :)

 

In my case the Running OS has a lot of Services that do not occur in the Offline Windows.

That is not a problem, but Diverse gives Notification 1 which might indicate a problem.

May be the Diverse Notifications can be further refined as e.g.

1 = Service Start value is different, which might indicate a problem

2 = Service does Not exist in Offline Windows

3 = Service does Not exist in Running OS

 

Your 32-bits program is Not considered as a Virus,

whereas my AutoIt3 32-bits programs mostly are in conflict with Windows Defender and are Blocked at First Sight.

Do you have any idea How to solve this problem in my case ?

OK, this will be fixed in a latter update.

Well, your tool, your name. :)

 

It is however not so obvious that a tool that is used to compare and that you actually tagged "comparison"  should be called comperator, a word that AFAIK doesn't exist (while comparator does and actually represents something doing comparisons) :dubbio:.

 

If there is a witty play on words I failed to get it. :(

 

Anyway:

Dear Wonko,

you are (as most of the time) on the right track.

There is a play on words: comperator is mix of two words.

I give you a hint: both of 'em come from Latin.

And yes, the name is a shameless exaggeration given the simplicity of the program.

 

Best regards   T.

Well, to an Italian it still sounds like it serves to buy something as comprare o comperare means to buy.

(while comparare means to compare).

An updated version of the file is available here:

A little clarification of the riddle:
Since I couldn't find Comparator in my dictionary (my fault), I used a name that sounded more expressive in my ears.

 

I hope you like it anyway. :cheers:

Naah.

 

Payments are only accepted in person and in beers :cheers: , no discounts/rebates.

 

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 it may take some time before you will be able to fulfill this obligation :(, but the good news are is being :whistling: that there are no interests for delays in payments.

Yep, you are correct, but it may depend on the gnus:
