detecting but unable to perform any action..

if you have a linux distribution at all (eg Ubuntu, Fedora) or download a linux distro and use a live version (which is smaller than full version and can be ran off a usb so switch your machine to boot to usb once distro is on there) then you should be able to see the hard drive on a linux distro all fine with all files still on there. Also another option is get a virtual box program and open linux from that and access your files in that virtual distro

boot from usb

Introduction UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.
  • Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, or Linux, or Mac OS X 10.5+. Note that resulting USB drives are bootable only on PCs (not on Macs).
  • Internet access for downloading a distro to install, or a pre-downloaded ISO file

The current version has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported:

Retuning to linux

I would say go with what is comfortable. Apparently the distribution that came with your PC was Xandros. Although I haven't used that particular distribution, I can say that Fedora and Ubuntu have really good support through the community and are just a quick download away.
