Im not really sure what you mean...but the last good... is invoked by pressing "Space bar" wich you probably allready know...
Although...If the system boots but something isn't working right although the system boots up kinda normaly...then there is no way to use the last good mode.. because the computer thinks that the computer is working great...so the last good mode will be..........get the point.?
I guess this didn't answer your cuestion.......hmmm
What really do you mean by function ?.....Swedish is my first language...sorry...
L8er....:)

I know last known good menu is loading the registry setting that was marked as good. As we know the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\Select key stores the details of good, changed and failed configurations. So when we press the space bar during bootup, what really happens is that, The select  key is opened and the value of LKGC is taken.Let this value be '1'. Then currentcontrol set ending with 1 is opened. That is currentcontrolSet001 is opened and the all the keys stored in this hive is copied into the CurrentControlSet. I want write a function which can copy the contents of one hive to another,without having anyuser security and privelege problems.

I am also interested in knowing this. This is in fact GINA's responsibility. As far as I know the whole registry hive ControlSet00X where X is pointed by Lastknowngood under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SYSTEM->Select should be replaced by Clone hive under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SYSTEM for each successful logon.
The security problem will come into picture while updating the registry keys.
If anybody knows how the microsoft has incorporated into its MSGINA.DLL.
