I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I'm moving your post to the right forum, and I'll make sure you get some help. We'll do our best to save your pictures for you.

My condolences on your loss.
Let's see if we can get your machine running for you. The first thing we need to try is to see if we can load the last working registry. You'll find the option to do this on the Advanced Boot Options screen...the same place you'll find the option for Safe Mode. Start the machine and tap the F8 key until you see the boot options, then use the arrow keys to select "Last known good configuration"...press "Enter" and see if the machine will boot to Windows.
Let me know what happens.

We're going to have to work our way to a command prompt to load an older copy of the registry. There are several ways to go about this...Safe Mode with a Command Prompt being the first and easiest to try.
See if you can get that to load and let me know what happens. If it hangs while loading files, please let me know what the last file in the list is.

Sorry the last file was multidiskrdiskpartition(2)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM.LOG

First, what kind of computer are we working on? Is it an OEM machine such as Dell, HP, Compaq, etc...? Having the make and model number of the machine may help.
Then, what disk are you using to access the repair function (where you press R)? Did the disk come with the machine or was it purchased separately?

Does the machine you are using now have a CD burning drive and do you have burning software like Nero or Roxio installed? I'd like to make a different disk to use to access Recovery Console. It will require that you burn a disk as an ISO image...which requires the burning software. If you don't have such a program, there are free applications we can use.

Download RC.iso and burn it to a cd as an ISO image.
If Roxio has trouble burning this disk or does not have the capability for burning ISO image files, let me know and I'll provide a link to a free program to burn the disk with.
Once burned, see if you can boot the machine with it and access Recovery Console by pressing the R key on the Welcome to Setup screen.
