Hi Experts,

We started configuring a customer's new domain controller, and put about six or seven hours into it. Most of the time was spent tweaking and testing group policies.  For reasons I'd rather not get into, a hardware change was made and the drive is no longer bootable but I can still get to the data. The fact the drive isn't a bootable doesn't really concern me, because I can just reinstall the operating system and start over. No big deal.  But what I would REALLY like to do is recover these policies so we don't have to re-create them.

Experts: Where can I retrieve those policies from the old drive, and how do I import them into a new domain controller?
