Too bad you have run into trouble.

I think Linux should be able to do that just fine. It depends a little on your configuration how hard it will be. If your partition is a FAT32 one and not NTFS it is easy. NTFS should be possible as well nowadays.

The effort needed of course has to be compared with other options such as a full reinstall of Windows. Just copying the registry to another medium is a question of booting Linux, mount a suitable disk, thumbdrive or whatever you prefer including Zipdrives and copy the files over.
Copying the repaired registry back to a FAT32 partition takes the same time.
Total excluding repairing the corrupted registry I estimate no more than 30 minutes at most.
NTFS will take around an hour, but that will be less predictable.
You could consider putting back a backup of the registry if that exists and see whether that works.

Do you want me to continu?
