Windows 7 Revovery
Posted on 2012-08-14
My system's main drive died a couple of weeks ago. I took it in to MicroCenter to have the drive restored.
I got the drive back today and have reinstalled it and am running into the following trouble.
When I boot up I get a message that my user profile is hosed up (User profile cannot be loaded). I found some suggestions on the web that suggest I boot up in safe mode and then make some changes to the registry.
I've tried that and when I try to get into regedit, nothing happens.
I tried my Windows rescue disk and didn't get much help. I do have a macrium rescue disk that gets me to a 3-month old copy of the system files from my SSD drive, but I don't think there's a problem with the SSD drive so I hesitate to recover that.
It's looking like all there is to do is reinstall Windows 7 and then go through the process or reinstalling every program.
Any better ideas?
