Get computer name in WinPE

Recommended Posts

redfive19

My buddy wrote code to do this in WinBatch but I want to port it over to AutoIt. He basically loads the reghive from the local hdd and reads from that. I can't find a way to accomplish loading this hive in AutoIt. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Well it looks like this is not going to work for me. I need to load the "system" hive not ntuser.dat. I need to do this to look for the machine name of the actual machine NOT the PE machine name. Has anyone done this?

It looks like the same method should work for the SYSTEM hive. Just change the file name to C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system. Note that you may need to include a "." after the name for the file name to be recognized (e.g., "C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system.").

I've used the REG.EXE command for this sort of stuff in the past - worked great.
