Stop 0x00000051 REGISTRY ERROR BSOD error when I start
windows, try to go into Safe Mode or even try to boot
into the recovery console. Any ideas? Microsoft suggest
booting into the recovery console and doing some registry
changes, but I get this message even in the recovery
console

Toward the bottom is a solution that worked -
It is basically a variation of http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;307545
that bypassed the need to get into Recovery Console by slaving the problematic
drive to another working computer.

The solution that was posted is as follows:

Hi Im not mcse qualified but here is a fix that worked for me .

firstly you will need acces to another Pc. fit the problem hdd as a slave to
this PC. I used a USB 2 IDE coverter cable I have in my workshop.

Start Windows Explorer.

On the Tools menu, click Folder options.
Click the View tab.

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folder
s, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recom
mended)" check box.

Click Yes when the dialog box is displayed that confirms that you want to di
splay these files.

Double-click the drive where the damaged install of Windows XP to get a list
of the folders. It's important to click the correct drive.

then goto folder Windows\system32\config .Then Delete these entrys

\windows\system32\config\system

\windows\system32\config\software

\windows\system32\config\Sam

\windows\system32\config\security

\windows\system32\config\default


Open the System Volume Information folder ,This folder contains one or more
_restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7
F8}

Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to clic
k Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may
be one or more folders starting with "RP x under this folder. These are res
tore points

Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder; the following path
is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder:

\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}RP1
Snapshot

From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the Windows\system32\c
onfig

_registry_user_.default
_registry_machine_security
_registry_machine_software
_registry_machine_system
_registry_machine_Sam


Now rename each file. ie remove _registry_user
_registry_machine. etc so you have

default
security
software
system
Sam

restored files in the windows\system32\config folder

Remove the hdd & replace back in the broken pc .

This worked for me, system back up & running

Hope this helps someone who is suffering the same fault.
