read Win7 registry from old computer
Posted on 2013-08-27
The mobo on my old system died and so I had to build a new one. My hard drives were fine, but I couldn't get the new system to use my old boot drive as the new boot drive.
So, I had to reinstall Windows 7 on a new drive in my new system.
However, my old registry had things that need to recover. Is there a way I can read the registry of my old windows drive? The drive is connected as an add-on drive in my new system. Normally I'd regedit to look at it, but as I'm not looking at the active registry, I'm not sure how to proceed.
