    Modify registry

    Hello everyone.
    I'm trying to right a program to change the hostname of an OS along with 3 others on the same HDD, problem is i can't figure out how to modify registry values of an OS that isn't running.
    We have a lot of disks in our lab and it gets really enoying having to change the host name of all of those, sense every platform have a unique name.
    I have a script to change the name of the active OS atm, but you still have to restart and boot to another OS you need to rename.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums.

    At first, I thought that your request was a bit odd and wondered if this concept would even be possible, and apparently it is! Have a read of this. That lead onto researching loading a hive in .Net from a file, and the resources for that are quite scarce. This post gave some ideas, but I have not researched any further than that.
