comment How do I troubleshoot Windows 7 when it is stuck booting on classpnp.sys?
Update: After a few more hours, a low level disk check telling me the disk was fine I noticed the BIOS date was very old and remember updating the BIOS to be able to install 7. I also had to disable the SATA support (which I already did before updating the BIOS, to no avail). And lol, everything seems to be working! Will backup and take precautions, of course...

I was wondering if there is a way to run "Windows Easy Transfer" on a computer that doesn't boot. I doubt. As it seems only a handful of configuration files have issues, it would be nice to transfer the registry and installation setting and reinstall the OS.

I did a network backup (could and still boot a "repair" WinXP) of all relevant stuff, as least. Backing up system files at this point looks irrelevant, if they are messed up. I'm not really convinced the disk is at fault, will do a low level test with the BIOS / HD tool.

"System restore failed to extract a file (...) from restore point. Where are those on the file system?
