Re: Recovery Environment Won't Start
What I ended up doing was taking the HD out of my laptop and hooking it up
to another machine. Then I went into the Windows\System32\Config and
replaced the various registry hives with the backup files. After I did that
I put the drive back into my machine and then tried the recovery process
again, and then everything worked. So clearly if there is any registry
corruption, it totally breaks the recovery process (go figure).
