I recently reformatted 2 of my hard drives and did a fresh install of Windows. I moved everything I wanted onto a folder in my 3rd hard drive and backed up my registry with Registry Repair Wizard 2006. Now when I backed up the registry I was running in Windows XP HOME Edition and now the new install is with Windows XP PRO Edition and if I try to use Registry Repair Wizard 2006 to reinstate the old registry, Windows won't load when I restart and I am assuming it is because it is a cross between the OS. So I am wondering if I can get Windows XP Home and do a full install of that, is it likely that the registry will work fine reinstated then?
PS: I had to do a full install with Windows XP Pro because it was the only full version I had. Also, I didn't realize that Windows has a method of backing up the registry itself... that probably would have been better, but hey you learn something about computers every day right?
