1. http://tips.oncomputers.info/archives2004/0401/2004-Jan-11.htm describes the use of KNOPPIX.
2. Remove the hard disk, place in some USB hard disk adapter and plug it into the desktop. Some don't like this since it costs less than 50 bucks. At least it's a fine way to get a measure of the file's worth.
Some reason, my fuckn HP Pavilion ze5470us notebook wont startup and i have to restore it but i need to get the files before i completely lose them by recovery. I want to transfer them to my desktop but dont know how? How can i transfer files from my cant startup notebook to another computer?
