Only problem is, I've gotten down to the section in the walkthrough that asks for the path to the registry directory. I've tried pressing enter for the default path, but it keeps asking me the same question. What do I do?
When using that particular tool you have to be sure that you are working with the correct partition, particularly with OEM systems where there may be recovery partitions that are often treated as default by the tool, but do not contain registry information.
Re-run the tool and select one of the other Disk/Partition options, it should then work,at this point with the default option, when the correct partition is selected
