Alter settings.


Recommended Posts

Home edition SP.3+

Is it possible to alter settings in an installed system by using a live cd or other method(s) to access the installed system?

Example: If a system blue screens at startup when the "Automatically Restart" box is checked can that setting be altered (unchecked) using a live cd or perhaps slaving the system drive and accessing on another pc?

If you want to change anything in the registry, you can use a WinPE CD or the slave drive idea to load the registry hive of the affected system. I mostly use this method to interrupt automation during testing by removing RunOnce commands but you can change anything you need to. If your setting is usually in a CurrentControlSet, you may want to read up on that because it will not appear the same as a loaded hive as if you were viewing it from the host RegEdit.
