Access Registry file on Non-Bootable Win2k HDD

I have a Windows 2000 machine that has become unable to boot, even into safe mode.

I have taken that drive and made it a slave in another computer. I am able to navigate and retrieve data from the unbootable HDD.

Does anyone know of a free or inexpensive registry tool that can be used to export entries from a Registry file on the slave hard drive and not the actual registry for the second machine?

Basically, I need to get registry keys exported from a non-bootable machine.

Thanks.

Start > Run regedt32
On the menu do this  Window > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Go to the menu File > Load Hive
Locate the hive file
Give it a name, maybe something like Fixing

These are the registry hives in the \system32\config\ folder
and the ntusers.dat file in the C:\Documents and Settings\Profile Name

See CrazyOne's article above


Then Go here (I wrote this 6 years ago...)
http://www.winnetmag.com/Article/ArticleID/14738/14738.html

Use that technique of using BOTH REGEDT32 and Regedit and you can export keys that you can edit with notepad search & replace, and then Import onto a live server.
