Hi,

I want to change the default installation location of the SAM file. Normally it is stored in C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SAM but I want to install it to another partition whilst keeping all other system files in their default location.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

You can't, sorry. You could for backup purposes, boot the PC with a livecd like ubcd4win and manually copy it to the other partition whenever you want it to be saved, as when you boot to another OS the file isn't in use. In that case I'd also copy the other files in that folder.
