Windows Vista/ 7/8/8.1/10 keep a regular backup of the registry hives handy in case you need to overwrite a corrupted registry hives. By default, the RegIdleBackup task runs every 10 days, so that’s as far back as you would lose if you replaced the current registry hives with the automatically backed-up registry hives files. You can find the backed-up registry files in \Windows\System32\config\RegBack folder. You can connect the HDD to working computer and use Windows Explorer to replace registry hives stored at Windows\System32\config folder with backups of the registry hives stored at Windows\System32\config\RegBack folder that is also stored at not booting HDD.

In Windows\System32\config\RegBack folder you will found five registry hives files copy them to Windows\System32\config folder.
