hello, my name is willie and i have situation that needs immediate attention.
my problem is that my windows xp is doing the "auto log on then log off dance.
i need to get into the registry to fix the 'userinit.exe' file and point it in the right direction.
i have tried just about everything. i tried remote access through another computer (network registry) that didn't work. i've tried PC regedit that didn't work, because it can't see the 'userinit' file. Bart PE didn't work using the "HIVE" method because again it can't see the 'userinit' file. I've tried knoppix, because it has WINE but it's not pulling up the regedit program.
i'm trying ubuntu for the first time and i must say it's impressive. it pick up all my hardware and it's allowing me to see my harddrives. i went into terminal and typed regedit and gave me a message saying " regedit can be found in wine, i'll have to enable component called 'universe' ". well, this is what i want to do.
i want to install wine into the live cd. when i run the ubuntu live cd, wine will be available in the application package and i can try to change the registry via ubuntu. can you help me with this task?
thank you.
