I posted earlier about trying to get onto my computer becasue windows wont boot. I have had several hints but nothing has worked.

Is there any way to network from my girlfriend computer into mine without setting up the networking options on the one that doenst work?

I just need to get into my hard drive to get out some files that I desperately need.

given your situation, no. If you can get your hands on a windows XP disk, you can build a Bart's PE with networking, that essentially makes windows xp boot from a cd, then copy them over.

The knoppix cd I point you to earlier may also allow you to make a quick and dirty network.

I actually had a lot of problems with that knoppix.

It was veryhard to find a DL that worked, when I did I DLed 2 different ones. I was unable to burn one as some error came up. The one I did get to burn and put into the machine and actually started. But I then got a disc drive error and it wouldnt work. SO I am completely at a loss right now.

If I installed XP on my girlfriends PC would I be abe to hook my hard drive up to it and get the files I need somehow?
