Download BitTorrent software and install it
use BitTorrent to open the 100kb torrent link file for the Windows OS that u got before

Realistically, if you're desperate for the data on your disk, then the only way to get it will be to remove the hard drive and put it in a caddy and connect it to another computer and extract your files. Sadly, if you've forgotten your bios password, then you'll never break into your laptop..best really to try and recall that password.
