I am trying this out in Windows 7 Virtual Machine
- Windows 7 64 is already installed in VM
- Boot the PC using Windows 7 DVD
- Go to Repair Your Computer - Command Prompt - Windows directory on the drive
- Run Regedit.exe and create a key called say
Testand set some string value to a value named say
Val1under say HKLM\Software (see the snapshot)
- Exit and restart
Now when you boot using the Windows 7 DVD again and access the registry, that key and entry does not exist.
What am I missing here? Can someone help. Does it have something to do with permissions?
