No way in, no way out (Registry problems)
Posted 16 July 2007 - 02:47 PM
I'm having a weird error and I know what is it. Okay, here's the situation itself. I've used to use winxp and I was satisfied enough, until one day I played with registry and I bet you already imagine what has happened. As far as I remember, I've added a new .reg into a registry and nothing changed (seemed like nothing changed ), so after shutdowning my pc I had to start it again (hey, everyone does that) and here comes the screen where I need to choose what should I load. Ubuntu or WinXp. As always I've chosen winXP and kaboom blue screen telling me 'BAD_POOL_CALLER' after googleing for some time, I've found out that it was supposed to be RAM problems. However, it wasn't, then after talking to few people I've relised that it was registry problem, acutally corrupted registry. W00t I thought, let's fix it. I've inserted winxp CD, and clicked R to repair, gues what? "BAD_POOL_CALLER" once again, I was like so the situation is: I can't repair/install/etc my windows and I'm using Ubuntu now. Installed wine, downloaded some registry fixers, none of them were working, so what do I need to do is to fix my windows registry with Ubuntu.
Anyone has any clue how to do that?
Thanks in advance,

Thanks anyweb, but the problem is that I can't install windows it just shows that blue screen with error :x
rather than waste time with repairing the registry, just back up your data and reinstall xp,
well the link i provided above has a registry editor and its a bootble disc/cd
if you want to re-install (note: complete install and NOT a Repair install) xp then boot from the xp cd, and choose to format/reinstall.

Thank you anyweb!
Anyone I'm not the one who understands windows registry :x
Maybe you have any clue how can I find the wrong registry that I've added or how do I repair it?
Thanks in advance,
Hi, I know similar feelings with windows, something I have found is at http://support.micro...=307545&sd=RMVP and also have a look at
http://aumha.org/win5/kbreg.htm. this may give you the means to repair the registry. But I have also found out that many things can be causing the BAD_POOL_CALLER
error. I would as I have done in the past used a copy of Linux to grab the data off of the Windows partition first, as it is quicker to do that, then wipe the offending partition, re-format, and re-install windows. This is the way I always choose now.
