registry change before changing motherboard?

Q: registry change before changing motherboard?

On a Win XP machine you could delete the registry keys under HKLM\Enum as the last step before removing the MB and when the new MB was installed the Plug & Play would install the your hardware drivers and properly configure the new MB.

Is there a similar process that will work with Win 7? There is no HKLM\Enum key in Win 7 registry. There is a HKLM\System\Control Set 001\Enum.

In order to get rid of the *.zip folder view in WinExplorer on a64bit WIn7 system I tried to delete (according to some tutorials) the Registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{E88DCCE0-B7B3-11d1-A9F0-00AA0060FA31}

Unfortuantely this is NOT possible immediately.
When I try to delete it then I got a popup

Cannot delete.... Error while delting key.

Ok, so I tried to get ownership of this key by right clicking-->Permissions
then selecting "Users" and enabling "Full control" the "apply" button but I got here:

Unable to save permission changes on ....
Access denied"

Why?

This last error comes for all Owners: SYSTEM, Administrators, trusted Installers.

I have Admin rights. So what more do I need to get ownership?

Even worse: Every change in owner is rejected as well.

A:Changing XP registry name

#1 If you mean "Registered Owner", that appears under the General Tab in Properties of My Computer, then that is a registry change. Enter the Registry via the RUN BOX, type: regedit. This is the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Micorsoft\Windows NT\Current Verison. Look for the Value of Registered Owner

#2 I don't understand your question or what exactly you are trying to do.

#3 Sometimes this works, make the Window the size you want it. Then from the File Menu, while holding the Ctrl key down, click on CLOSE.

A:Spyware Is Changing Registry

Hello thefaz and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't think that any malware would be making that setting in the registry. It is a setting used to protect a system from having anything but bmp files set as the desktop background, thus preventing malicious html pages or jpeg files to be loaded as a background.

It is more probable that the entry keeps coming back due to WinPatrol or Spyware Doctor protecting the registry from any changes. If you want to remove that entry from the registry then you will need to first close any registry protecting programs which prevent changes. Once the entry is removed then reboot the machine and let the protection programs start up again.

Other than that the HijackThis log is clean. You are good to go.

Cheers.

No LightScribe drives detected by the Labeling Software

Cause: Key value set to non-default ?1? locks out LightScribe communication to optical drives.

So where do I go to reset the value to the default "0".

Hi Everyone.

I am trying to get a PC back on the internet via a wireless router. I have tried using both a wired (which previously worked) and a wireless connection. Both say they have connected but still deny me internet access.

I have been into the registry and altered the settings to match a laptop that I have up and running both wired and wireless. this is set up to the usual private addresses starting at 192.168.2.etc, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0. DHCP server aimed at the router - 192.168.2.1

When I try to re-connect to the PC to the internet (either way), the registry changes to a completely different IP address, starting 162.254.etc and a DhcpServer of 255.255.255.255
It seems like something is altering the registry behind my back, can anybody shed some light on this please?

I've got a nagging problem and I haven't found any solutions. There is a workaround my problem, but this involves changing the registry. I know this is risky, so what should I do to protect my PC?

A:Risks with changing registry?

It is difficult to be specific without knowing the details.
Creating a restore point before making the change would be a good idea. Making an image backup of the OS would be even better.

A couple of things to keep in mind about using regedit:
1. Unlike a text editor there is no save function. All changes are immediate. Of course many changes do not take effect until a reboot or in some cases a logoff and login.
2. There is no undo facility. So be sure the changes are correct.

I want to change my current motherboard without changing other components. What is the best way to go about this (steps, I mean)?

Any opinions about the board and steps to upgrade?

Hi,
I'd say the first step is to get a new oem/ system builders copy of win-7
The other is tied to the other mobo

Although changing out or upgrading a mother board may seem like a simple thing a lot of components might not be compatible most likely the cpu and ram will have to be upgraded as well.

you will need to reinstall windows from scratch and when the registration point comes up, you will need to call M$ to get a new code. You will need to tell them you did a mobo swap-out.

Hi,

In the next couple of days, I am changing my motherboard from a Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 to a GA-EP45-UD3L. I use Windows 7 and would like to keep my setting and programs e.t.c. when I install the new motherboard.

Does anyone know of a way to do this? I don't really want to have to do a fresh install of the OS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Changing My Motherboard

Actually, it is fairly easy. Uninstall the various drivers directly associated with the original motherboard model just before you shut it down the last time. If any of the "un-installations" ask you to reboot, ignore the request responding that you will do it later. Continue until you have gotten rid of them all. Then shut down.

Once everything is connected to the new motherboard and you power up the first time, Windows will begin looking for all the needed drivers and either find the ones it needs or not find them and allow you to supply them, either from Gigabyte's driver CD, or from the Internet.

That's pretty much all there is to it.

You need to log in as the Administrator to change permissions. We do not assist with by-passing passwords to make changes to the system that only the Administrator could make.

Also is there one for Microsoft Office (my version is XP)? Sometimes it needs that too.

I'm trying to modify the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell key in the registry to add a "Open with Chrome" entry so that I can right-click a shortcut and choose whether to open it in IE (default) or Chrome.

I know how to create and write this type of key/command, I've done it successfully with other file types, but RegEdit keeps telling me I don't have the required permission to create a new subkey in this particular key.

I've changed the permissions to give administrators full control of this key but it still throws me the same error. I changed the permissions likewise on the parent key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut and can create a new subkey directly under that key but the same settings don't work on the shell subkey.

Help...?

A:Can't modify registry key even after changing permissions

Well you can try this if you like. It's the method that I use to modify protected registry keys.

Note: It is wise to back up (export) the registry key before messing about with it.

Try downloading this and run as administrator:

RegOwnershipEx

Since you've been screwing up permissions on that registry key I'd suggest making use of system restore to return things to how they were before you start.

Run the program:

In the program's folder you'll find a Windows 7 sub-folder. Open it and then open the X86 folder for 32bit windows. Right click RegOwnershipEx.exe and choose run as administrator.

From the GUI browse to the registry key:



Then Take Ownership

Then run Regedit and make your modifications and exit Regedit

Then go back to your open RegOwnershipEx window and Restore Ownership.

Reboot.

Does anyone know of a way to remap the control key to use the command (windows) button without administrative rights or changing the registry?

I don't have the recovery disc, and its a different chipset in new motherboard. I know if I could boot from old mobo and use sysprep tool I'd be fine. However that is not possible. Is there a way to manually edit the driver files or run sysprep from a live-cd? Registry hacking might even be necessary.

*edit: I just tried running sysprep from a Windows 7 Recovery Disc command prompt, but it gives the error that ActionQueue.dll is missing from my computer.

Did you already install the new motherboard, so you're ready to start the process if I tell you how? You use the original disk, no restore is involved in the process?

Read the attached pdf. It can inject drivers using "P2P adjust OS" option. You want the software? It was freeware a long time ago.

Hi all,
Today I tried to change my motherboard over to a AM3+ socket one and install a new AMD CPU.
I created a backup image file on a external drive. So I performed the sysprep and upon turning the system back on I got an error message:

Windows could not finish configuring the system. To attempt to resume configuration, restart the computer.

After reading up on this, I found it was common. One solution was to use my installation disk and repair the computer. I thought this worked as I can now login to Windows. However when I do, if I try to click on Computer I get an error saying:

The server process could not be started because the configured identity is incorrect. Check the username and password.

I could not find a definitive answer for this, and that's why I'm posting.
Could I use the backup somehow?

Another method is to apply your last image using it's boot disk, then Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD

Hey fellas. I was looking into changing my motherboard, and I realized that I was not provided a Windows XP cd when I purchased my computer. After doing some searching, I did notice that the manufacturer created an I386 folder with the associated XP files on my hard drive.

If I switched motherboards, I was wondering if there would be some way I could reinstall XP again without having to buy a new CD. I appreciate any comments. Thanks a lot everyone.
 

A:Changing Motherboard and Windows XP

Unless you get an identical motherboard, you'll have to buy xp. Most pre-built systems either come with a "restore" xp cd or a "restore" xp hard drive partition. Neither of these can be used on another motherboard. Xp home is $90 u.s. for the oem version.

I know, it stinks. I can guess why microsoft likes it though $$$.

A:Keeps restaring after Changing Motherboard

I would definately give it a try with the other HDD. Its is good practice to do a completely fresh installation of Windows if you change the motherboard. There are likely to be many different components, drivers etc needed and it is fairly easy to get conflicts between the existing HDD configuration and what the new motherboards wants.

If it works with the other HDD then I would suggest putting the original HDD as a secondary and backing everything up. Then format and reinstall on the original drive (hope that makes some degree of sense).

I will also say I am not a PC tech, everything I have learnt is through trial and error / personal experience, so don't take my answer as the gospel truth its just my initial thoughts.

When its booting, you need to enter the BIOS to get the settings.

Hello

As the title says, I wanna change my motherboard processor, and insert an SSD aswell while keeping the old harddrive.

Was wondering if I need to perfom a new reinstall on windows or if I can just transfer windows itself to the SSD and then just keep going. I was also wondering if my windows install will messup if I insert my new motherboard due to new BIOS.

Thanks
 

A:Changing motherboard and processor

Its always a good idea to fresh install when changing motherboards. A fresh install will minimize any issues that could arise from different hardware configurations. I've also heard that Windows setup detects an SSD and optimizes Windows for use with the SSD.

You should also keep in mind, an OEM license for Windows is not be transferable to a new motherboard. The motherboard is the one component that constitutes a new machine. OEM installs are bound to the motherboard they are activated on.

A:Changing new Motherboard under WinXP

You can swap mb as long as you have not installed proprietary chipset drivers for the old mb. If you have it can still be done, however it is more work.
With that said I do not recommend swapping mb without a clean install of the os. You will be happier in the long run with a clean install. The computer will be more stable with fewer problems.

Here's my story. I've just managed to change a systems boot letter from E:\ to C:\. The machine is working fine now, but all the programs that were installed are still looking in E:\ which no longer exsists. I've gone through and changed a few of these paths manually, but after an hour of that i realised it'll take far too long to do it this way.

What i'm looking for is a tool to look through the registry and replace all instances of "E:\" with "C:\". Does anyone know if such a product is available? It's be a great help.

Thanks in advance

1) In IE, when I click on the search icon, the default search engines are no longer availabe. Somehow, as I am surfing the net, my search preferences gets changed without my knowledge.

The only way to reset to the default search preferences is to: click
on "Tools" >> "Internet Options" >> click the "Programs Tab" >> click on "Reset Web Settings".

2) Is there a way prevent sites from altering the default search engines (or registry settings) without having to manually having to reset them?

Can you edit the links to point them to the C:\ drive.  They are most likely using a variable that changed when you changed the registry entry.

A:win8 keeps crashing after changing motherboard/cpu

Whenever you install a new mother board, you need to reinstall Windows and all your software/drivers. The only time this doesn't apply is if it's the same motherboard model. Also, never install the drivers from the cd. They're outdated by the time you buy the product. Go to the motherboards website and download new drivers.

When ever doing anything inside a computer you must not only switch it off but also remove the power cable from the back. It is always a good idea to earth yourself for a few seconds on a radiator pipe or such like to discharge any static. Normally when you change the battery on a Dell the BIOS will prompt you that it has been reset and will ask you to hit F1 to continue or F2 to enter the BIOS. Hit F2 to change the time and date settings.

A:Win 7 OEM License - Changing Motherboard & Processor

If you change the motherboard to a different model or manufacturer technically the OEM version cannot be activated as it is tied to the motherboard. However, I know Microsoft has made some exceptions.

I'm facing the same thing right now. I suspect a problem with my motherboard. I have another to replace it but it is a different vendor and I'm afraid Microsoft will not activate it. I've considered an "anytime upgrade" from Home to Pro version but I don't know if that will change the OEM version into a full version. So, I'm stuck.


XP was different and the process was much more lenient.

A:changing multiplier on Asus Z87-A motherboard

I'd imagine you have to change the Ai Overclock Tuner, or whatever they are calling it now, to "Manual" and then change the core multipliers. If you can, go into your BIOS, access the advanced mode and take a few screenshots of your options. You'll need a flash drive plugged in to take screenshots.........I believe its the F12 key. Post some pictures up and we'll try to get you goin.

I am swapping out my older X58 BIOS motherboard for a UEFI motherboard with a new Ivy Bridge i5. I'd rather not have to reinstall Windows 7, and just want to make sure I can swap the boards and CPUs without issue. Thanks!

A:Changing From BIOS Motherboard to UEFI

I don't know how likely that is.

Before you try any transplant, I strongly recommend that you image your HD. I've used Acronis True Image, although it's not completely foolproof.

You may be able to simply swap motherboards, Windows 7 detects the hardware changes, and off you go. You may have to install a few new drivers.

If that doesn't work, you may be able to use the sysprep utility on your WIndows installation, with the "generalize" switch. That's intended to allow producing a generic Windows installation for diverse hardware. (Drivers are removed.)

If all else fails, re-install Windows. I hope that you aren't using an OEM copy of Windows. Microsoft may not be willing to activate it on a new system.

A:BSOD because of changing permissions on files and registry keys

I use Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit.

BSOD appeared after I changed some permissions in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG. I just wanted to add Everyone to permissions but it results in deleting all permissions and then you aren't able to take ownership neither to change permissions.

Safe mode doesn't work. Gives me BSOD. Windows logo is shown.

I have used Windows 7 Recovery CD but startup repair won't do it. No matter if I change partitions. It won't go.

I typed regedit in cmd and found out that Recovery actually repaired registry permissions back to default but for some reason, system won't start. System restore says there are no restore points.

I know there are some because I didn't delete them, however, maybe system restore cannot access them due to permissions.

I thought if I should take ownership of every file using takeown /f command. It's something like I did yesterday and it worked.

I know I my files are there but I'm just losing hope that I would get back. What should I do? I know it must be something with permissions since this caused the problem.

Please help me, it's driving me nuts!

Hey guys,

Apologize in advance if this has been covered numerous times but i can't seem to find the right keywords to research in google and this forum.

Anyways, I currently have a Q6600, Gigabyte P35 motherboard, 4GB DDR2 800 ram, and 2 x 320GB in raid 0 using the ICH9R chipset. The OS is Win 7 Pro x64. Ive just recently bought a Q9550, Asus PQ5 Deluxe (x48), 4GB DDR2 1066 ram.

Is there a way to just plug in my hard drives into the new rig without installing a fresh copy of Windows? To complicate things, will the RAID config i have be a problem or the ICH10R chipset on the new motherboard be a smooth transistion and retain the RAID array?

Thanks in advance

Note: Not sure if this is in the right section, please advise if not.

A:Changing motherboard without reinstalling Win7x64 + RAID0

Hello rorii, welcome to Seven Forums!


Start by having a look at this tutorial at the link below though you may be asking for serious issues with the RAID as Windows 7 and RAID are not exactly the best of friends to start with.

I have a friend who's motherboard was fried and he also had to change the power supply. He brought it to a computer shop and they diagnosed and told him to replace the two. He replaced it and now it will just boot pass the memory test and before the windows screen comes up saying windows xp loading, the blue screen of death comes up for 1 second and restarts, this process continues to occure. I heard you can try to run the repair but he also needs the cd key or install xp right over with the same key. Unfortunately I dont have the key. I heard you can run the recovery console and fix it but I'm not to sure exactly how to do that and wouldn't mind a little help with some step by step instructions. It has to do with the HAL. Anyways if anybody can help me out that would be great

Hello,
If I were to switch my motherboard to a higher model, will my harddrives retain their memory in raid mode? Thanks

A:system running slow after changing motherboard

Sounds like a reformat of the SSD is required -- it may be using a wrong block size. Fresh OS install time and wipe it.

My motherboard GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R appears defective and I'm looking to change to another board (perhaps an Asus brand).

Question is - I have a RAID 1 array. If I switch to a different board, can I still keep my RAID 1 intact or will this reformat my drives and wipe everything clean? I really want to keep everything intact.

I am thinking about helping my friend install a new motherboard and processor while keeping all of the other components he has. I read on another board that you can go the Device Manager and uninstall everything, swap the board and processor, and then when you boot install the correct drivers.

Is this possible? I don't know if his install of XP is OEM or not. If it is, I think a reformat would be necessary with a non-OEM XP disc.

Any thoughts?
 

A:When changing motherboard and processor, is XP re-install always required?

mine worked fine when i changed the motherboard and cpu but eventually after backing up my data, i did do a clean installation just to get the kinks out. you dont have to but it is recommended so you can get the most out of your hardware. i did mine backwards for some strange reason, best way would be to backup now and then change the hardware and reinstall.


note my cpu stayed a amd

- COMODO FIREWALL MESSAGE: GPhotos.scr could not be recognized and it is about to modify the protected registry key HKUS\S-1-5-21-2310509393-91379083-3055418054-1000\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections. You must make sure GPhotos.scr is a safe application before allowing this request. etc etc etc (many keys)
 
- Gphotos.scr is located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64

Can someone explain to me how to make this change? Thanks in advance.

I have the program Bills WinPatrol which notifies me if anything is trying to change something on my computer. I keep getting a notice that the extension .REG is trying to be reassigned to the program NOTEPAD.exe1% instead of Regedit.exe, and I keep saying no, but it is persisting.
When I check the extension list that Winpatrol provides it shows that the following extensions have been changed to NOTEPAD.exe1%. I looked in the registry and under extensions all the following show notepad.exe^.ini, notepad.exe^.txt and notepad.exe^.wtx.
Here is the picture of the notice I receive from

Any help you can give me with this will be appreciated.

I have Windows XP home w/SP2 and I am buffaloed. I thought I was a knowledgable user, but I have been trying to stop a program from autorunning. I have deleted the value in the registry under the "RUN" key of H_KEY LOCAL_MACHINE, and CURRENT-USER, then I exit, and as soon as I open regedit again, the values are back like they were, ignoring my deletion. How do I save the changes I make to text strings in the XP registry?

I have administrator priveleges.

I miss Windows 3.1, where you only had sys.ini and win.ini to fool with, and when you changed something it stayed changed. Hahahaha.

Thanks.

The program could be spyware or a virus, run through Steps 1 and 2 in my Guide completely and then use Autoruns in Step 5 to remove any remaining startup applications.
