    Default Windows XP Logon Problem

    I was working on an XP Home Edition computer trying to set up the registry to use the ClassicLogon... I thought it would be easier to create a registry key on a disk and run that disk with the registry value in it.. the computer I used had a default domain specified in the registry (CPU_ROOM_16) and the computer I installed the key on is a different domain (CPU_ROOM_19) because XP home defines the domains as the computer name. I booted up to test it out and see if it worked before I went and did it on every other computer in the lab, and I got the classic logon screen as expected... just with no way to login. Is there any way I could gain entry to the registry or get back into the system to change the DefaultDomain value to the CPU_ROOM_19 like it should be?

    Have you tried going into safe mode and doing a restore?

    You may be able to swap the changed registry with the old one using the XP CD's recovery Console.
    Generally XP keeps a bachup copy of the registry in the Windows/Repair folder and by using the recovery Console you can delete the existing registry and replace it with the saved one.
    See http://www.wintrouble.net/discus/mes...tml?1050505904
    for some extensive detail on just how to do this.
