Go back to factory conditions from your recovery disks or recovery partition. That should solve all and should work.
Formatting the system disk isn't necessary, so it's not important that you can't.

In reply to: cant

If Windows is corrupt, and you can't reinstall it in any way (you didn't yet tell why) your choices are:
1. Install Linux (although I've never seen a situation where you can install Linux and not install Windows, so that's doubtful).
2. Buy another PC

What happens if you copy that unidrv.dll from some other Windows PC? Then it's no longer missing. You might need to register it after copying.

Copying a file is a rather basic thing to do using Windows Explorer. Use a USB-stick to copy it from another PC.
Backup can very well be dine is just copying the files to an external hard diskor USV stick. And, since external hard disks are rather unreliable, from there to another PC. Or to two externals.

Boot from Linux disk (easy to download and burn on another PC) to do that copy.
Or install Windows on a new empty hard disk, and afterwards copy your files from this one.

PS. It's a good practise to backup your data before something fatal happens. Didn't you do that?
