MigWiz outside windows environment

Its possible to run migwiz outside windows environment ?

I'm tired to try windows start up repair, all the options...
The disk has no problems (hdd regenerator) and has no virus (windows defender offline) but I'm not able to repair this stupid annoying error.

I'd like to migrate the account data, perhaps with any king of boot cd.

Do you know if its possible ?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Jack, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to get your data using a bootable Peppermint3 DVD or USB.

Hope this helps, :)

Hi Brink,

Thanks for you answer, but I need a different thing...

I You'd like to migrate an user account from a windows 7 installation that not boot.
Format and re install windows again.
Put the old account back to the new windows installation.

I saw some articles about USMT 4.0 and BartPE but I had several doubts about the process.

Best regards,

Are there any decent free REXX environments (prefer compiler, but will live with an interpreter) for Windows 7? Much of my job is in writing and debugging REXX code, and if I could find a developer's kit for REXX that runs on my laptop, I'd be a happy guy... Anyone?
