then you really need to find a second desktop, a friend perhaps.
If you cannot enter into safe mode, and do not have a windows disk, you need to get the files off in a way that is non-destructive.
The only real gotcha involved in moving a drive to a second machine is to make certain that the harddrive you are adding does not conflcit with existing hardware in the machine you are adding it to
Ideally, you add your drive to the second machine on its own ribbon. All motherboards have two controllers, each supporting 2 drives each.
If the host computer has its harddrive on one ribbon and cd-rom on the other, remove the ribbon from the cd-rom drive temporarily and just hook your drive to it.
Start the computer, the working pc will detect the drive. Copy the files over. Burn them to a cd, and remove your drive
You may need to take possession of the files/folders to do this
To do so depends on the windows version on the working machine...do you know of such a machine?
This will be easier to explain if you can give me particulars about the good machine--if you can, I can give you explicit instructions
