Restoring SAP R/3 System WAS620 after Registry crash (Windows 2000)


Hello there,

after having some troubles with Windows 2000 Server ( we had to restore the System Hive (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM part of the registry)

After that, the most system relevant parts of the registry are gone (because SYSTEM key is initial). And so also all registered (non-standard-windows2000) Windows Services are gone (no backups). So there is no Service for MSSQL or SAP at all. Therefore it is not possible to start up the system.

Is there any solution for (re-)installing these services?

(Or any other solution to get this thing running (again))

Thanks in advance.
