EFS Cert Found but does not Install Correctly - Where do I go? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please read below post and direct me. I was sent here by microsoft support forums.

    Hello, I recently had a BSOD that corrupted my registry. I was unable to boot into my PC. Nonetheless, I was able to create a system image of that Windows INstallation as it was and save the files from it.

    Now I am trying to access EFS files on the new install, my old PC's cert is found, but there seems to be a problem with it. It says "Keyset not found". I check properties and it says the CA cert is not trusted and I need to install it in the Trusted Root Cert. I install the cert and it say "Import Successful". Yet it is still not trusted after.

    I'm wondering if there is any way I can restore my certs from the system image by pulling files and placing them in this system? Or maybe replace the old Window's version Registry files so I can boot into it and make a functional backup?

    Literally any ideas would be much appreciated.
