We know how to get the list of software installed from an instance of an operating system.
My windows is unbootable. No safe mode. I want to get the list of installed software so that I can wipe and reinstall.
The list of installed software can be retrieved from the registry.
Boot from Windows 7 DVD
dism /Image:c:\ /Get-Apps (Gets MSI installed programs.)
You should be able to run regedit from there.
Inside regedit use File Load Hive and select c:\windows\system32\config\SOFTWARE
export (First one 64 bit software, and 2nd is 32 bit software)
