Hello,

Well my friend's computer kept rebooting again and agian and well you know
I tred to help by going into F8 and booting with the debugging mode it worked but in a result of that all thire media was lost but all installed programs were still intact so is there a way to retrive thier lost data and is it something that just happens when you boot into debugging mode

If you did a system restore then the computer hard drive was formatted and overwritten with a factory image. All data is lost - except some data might be recovered using expensive data recovery tools. That's because some of the data was recorded on areas of the disk that were not reused by the factory image. It all depends on what the data is worth to them and how much time you want to spend on recovery.
