Windows 7
Boot into Windows 7 to retrieve docs before reinstall

Okay, here's my issue, my install went south about 4 days after install, don't know why. Spent all day yesterday going through the various system recovery options described in this site and available via booting up using my windows 7 install disk. No luck. Fairly convinced the boot mgr became corrupt and no matter what I do none of the fixes work. So, I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I will have to reinstall. But before I do that I'd like to pull some data off the HD that I had not yet had a chance to back up before the computer crashed. What method would best allow me to simply boot into Windows 7 just to recover the information (documents, file folders, etc.)? Help!
