    system restore from command line

    Hi All,

    I currently have a winxp pro system with a corruypted software hive in
    the registry.
    I Booted into a PE env and using avast registrty editor recovered the
    softeware hive from a logfile.
    This gave me hope. But when I boot it still halts after loading
    mup.sys disabling mup .sys doesn't help.
    so what i would like to do is run srtsui.exe however can't get into
    safe mode and repair mode will no allow me to run rstrui.exe...

    What are my options ?

    Re: system restore from command line

    Win XP creates several copies of the Registry at the time of successful
    boot - as it boots and detects a "corrupt" Registry it will "check" and load
    one of the copies.

    Using System Restore may not be successful since the restore point may
    conatin the same problem - XP may have created points based upon repair
    attempts.

    One option may be booting from the XP CD and doing a repair - note - not
    repair via Recovery Console - at that point in setup - bypass and as setup
    continues it should state it has found an XP installation and offer to clean
    install or repair the current installation.

    Repair is actually an upgrade installation and a product key required. Since
    it is an upgrade data and applications are "supposedly" retained.

    Thank you Ramesh.

    I know of another that is actually easier and cheaper:

    XP Recovery CD Maker 1.01 1.06 MB $15
    http://www.superwin.com/xp-recovery-cd/index.htm

    quote/
    WinXP Restore Points
    This tool finds registry backups in WinXP's Restore Points and lets you choose which one to recover.
    Only the registry is restored from the Restore Point. Disabled in the Trial version.

    Re: system restore from command line

    Hi ju.c,

    It appears that the tool can only recover the registry from the stored
    snapshots. This can be done via Recovery Console or using Bart's PE CD, both
    are freeware.

    System Restore is *much* more than the registry.

    Re: system restore from command line

    It is better for me in most cases to just restore the Registry.

    Would you please create a new page on your site with this info, all of it. Like apps, Recovery
    Console commands and Bart's PE. (and post the link)

    I make custom CD's all the but I don't know how to use Bart's PE to restore the Registry, unless you
    mean just simple file copy.

    Since we're on the subject, how do I use ERUNT with WinPE discs? I'm afraid to test it and I can't
    find any help on the topic.


    Thanks, Ramesh!

    Re: system restore from command line

    Hi ju.c,

    Here is a MS-KB on restoring registry hives from System Restore store
    ("System Volume Information") folder.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/307545

    Alternately you can simply select the snapshot, restore the registry hives
    and move it to the System32\Config folder, using Bart's PE CD.

    >> Would you please create a new page on your site with this info, all of
    >> it. Like apps, Recovery Console commands and Bart's PE. (and post the
    >> link)


    Good idea! I've added this to my "To do" list (which is already very long
    :-)
