At most, regedit can connect to a remote registry though a network, but that's not the case with Hirens CD.
I was thinking of an external tool that parses the Windows internal structures that hold the registry, if it's at all possible.

When in registry editor, highlight HKLM (or whichever hive you need to load), then do a File>load hive navigate to (drive letter):\WINDOWS\System32\config of the crippled drive and highlight the file "Software" (or navigate to another hive you need to load) hit ok, it will ask you to name the hive it is about to load, give it a unique name like Test, hit OK, it will load the hive under HKLM with the name Test, Make and changes you need then highlight "Test" and do File>Unload Hive. Be sure to have the Test key highlighted when you select unload.

Has the original windows partition winxp as well? Or has it vista/win7?

What are you trying to change in original windows partition?

what exactly you want to do, hiren boots into its own os, its like you install another os and expect uninstalling programs in the other os!!
with hiren boot cd you can easily get access to your information while your os is corrupt and can not boot into that. also it has some registry programs that runs through your os.

Hiren's Boot CD problem.
My apologies if this is the wrong site for this question. I downloaded to a USB memory stick a copy of Hiren's Boot CD using the 'Rufus' utility. I then wanted to give it a run so I changed the boot order on my Windows 7 Home Premium O/S to make the USB the priority in boot order. However, the...
