New Server- Same Old Problems - Registry Corruption

Well it happened.  Registry changed caused major issue with server 2008.  Newer server platform - same old problem and same resolution as windows 98.

Quick Fix:

Boot to install CD.
Get to command prompt.

1. Rename the affected registry (this case 'system'.)
C:\windows\system32\config\ren system  systemold

2.  Copy backup from regbak
c:\windows\system32\config\copy c:\windows\system32\config\regbak\system

Cross your fingers.
