Is there a way I can import the WinXP registry from another installation?
Posted on 2007-07-26
I need a tool to import the windows registry and settings in a new Windows XP installation from another old one. The problem is that I have broken my current XP and it can't be upgraded now (once installed on the final step - Finalyze installation, it starts to load and there's a blue screen appearing for a less than a second then my Laptop (Sony Vaio VGN-S38SP) reboots immediately, so I even can't see the message on the screen. I tried with another XP CD (the original, old ver) and the result was similar - a message on a green background saying that PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA occured). So, now I have a new copy of Win installed in a new directory and the old one, keeping all installed programs and settings and other important stuff there. The question again - is there a way I can import everything from the old one?
