I have a crashed operating system. I am trying to access the hard drive to transfer memory to an external hard drive or another computer before performing the recovery disk. I know best buy uses a program that access the hard drive directly and bypasses windows completely but I cannot find one. Can anyone help? I have alot of data that I do not want to lose.

Here is a link to a web page with instructions on creating a bootable Linux CD which you can use to copy your files.

Good Luck
Thanks alot. I was able to get into my system last night. Now I just have to transfer files.
