Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I have already given my way of reinstalling Windows on a PC/laptop in Crashed Windows : No Problem This piece has the laptop in mind where one can not install Windows in a different directory/folder.
On a laptop where you either have the OS on a CD/DVD or on a hidden partition on the HDD you can not do anything but to follow my suggestion given here. Go to the following link and download Knoppix from there on a different computer. It would be in the form of an ISO file. Burn this ISO file to a CD and reboot the laptop that has the problem. Once booted with Knoppix, you can mount the Windows NTFS and FAT drives/partitions. After that you can copy all your data to a CD. That done will enable you to reinstall the Windows from the original CDs that came with the laptop or from the hidden partition.
