Windows 7: Repair the registry from another partition

Repair the registry from another partition

Hi, I've looked and tried the whole day for solutions but here it is: i have a corrupted registry on a windows 7 partition and I have another on working, so i wanted to know if there was a way to restore/fix/repair the registry of the corrupted partition from the partition working. Apparently the system protection wasn't on so I don't have saved files in "regback" and "system32/config".

I'd be glad to give more informations if needed.

Thank you for you help, I'm really in a pinch here.
