My hard disk got trashed.  It's unbootable.  Was NT 4 Wkstn, SP5.

Have new hard disk.  NT 4 Server, SP 6.

I can "mount" the old disk and "see" the file structure with "Win NT Explorer" and can "open" most of the files.  Specifically, I can open:

E:\WinNT\System32\Config\Software

Clearly it's not a "text" file, but it is "readable".

Some programs (eg Gator) store their / my "data" in the Registry.

Question: is there any way to extract / export a set of keys from the old registry on E: and restore / import them into my new registry?

If I well understand your question, of course you can obtain your old registry settings using REGEDIT.

You can access it from Start -> Run : "REGEDIT"

from REGEDIT you can import reg files or export them (a sort of keys or all)to reg files for later importing into other NT/Windows system.

look for those *.reg files in your non usable disk system

Hope this helps!
