Under terms of an H-P supportpack, I was required to send my Omnibook XE3 in for service. From past experience, I performed two backups of the hard drive prior to sending it in.

As I suspected, after it came back repaired (display was replaced), I found that the hard drive was wiped and replaced with Windows 2000 Pro. However, my original OS was W98SE. After some use, I'd like to continue using W2000Pro.

How do you access Registry data from the backups? And is it possible to use Registry data between these two operating systems?

have a look at

http://is-it-true.org/nt/registry/rtips64.shtml

this links to a page explaining what files the registry is composed of and contains some links on registry construction.

As a remark :

  try to reinstall all programs rather than using registry information from older windows versions as this can easily corrupt your programs or even your windows installation.

  for future use, also export the registry using regedit. This generates .reg files which you can easily import into registry. Even better : you do not have to import the whole exported registry but you can then take pieces of information that you want and import only these items as the .reg file is composed of readable tekst lines.
