Yes, I want to know why regedit won't save my changes.

@Gregrocker And I told you quite frankly that I'm not going to reinstall Windows.

shell was: cmd.exe /k start cmd.exe
userinit was: X:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,

But if I change it back to explorer.exe and replace X with C then restart, still get black screen.
Then go back to look at Recovery CD and type regedit in cmd and seems like registry didn't save my corrections.

What to do now?
You don't know what you're doing!! You were booted form recovery CD to some mini win7. The commands affected the mini win7 (in ramdisk, so destroyed anyway later). You have to change the rela win7 on partition labeled OS.

Problems began after changing the registry permissions? That was all you did initially?

Because you change the registry of winpe (mini win7 for recovery).

Kaktussoft, yes exactly that was the main problem. It deleted owner and all premissions in the branch ROOT in the registry.

I thought that it was the registry of the Repair CD. Do you know what to do to repair the registry on computer via cmd on recovery CD? If I click load hive in Recovery CD I can see all my files and partitions as followed:

System (C -> only Temp folder in it
OS (D -> Actually the content of the whole computer
Recovery (E -> Recovery folder with nothing special in it
Boot (X -> The content of the recovery CD

Why did you think the bootmenu (BCD) was faulty... it DID start and does still start win7!
Why messing around with partitions?
Why did you reset file permissions to default? They were not wrong... =>resetting to default doesn't hurt.

Because on the other forum they told me it's the problem. And Windows 7 on my PC doesn't start.
Because I wanted to get my Windows 7 working back as it was perviously.
They were wrong because I changed them by mistake.

In recovery environment select "system restore". Go back in time prior to date/time when problems started.
System Restore

All exe, dll, registry and other windows files will be rolled back to that time. Data files like WORD and excel documents are untouched.

In first post you say: "Safe mode, last known good configuration and system restore all don't work."
What error message when doing "system restore"? Restore points are listed?

The error is: No restore points have been created on your computer's system disk.
But I didn't delete any of them and I remeber they were there the same day!

If it was that simple, I would already do it.
