It means Windows installation is stuck during Expanding file of installing windows. Installation were stopped during the 2 setup windows 7. That time I click the close button at the end of edge. It was long time more than 2 hours. Then windows said upgrading fail. And then restarted the windows, that time after POST, bootMGR is miss. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart the computer. How was my back up data on the drive C:, how can I get it, how should I do, pleaes leat me know. Thank you in advance.

If you have a External HD, you could copy & paste your data.
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console
than copy & paste your data to new install.

Always best to do a clean install:

I use the Litetouch deployment to install the windows, this is the first time I have that problem. After it happened, I removed the HDD to try to back up the data in it and then attached with my pc as a secondary drive. There, I found there is only two folders (1) $windows.~BT (2) Windows.
How should I backup the data? Can I get the user data from there?
Please answer me.

Can you open the two folder? If NO
Try to take ownership of the folder:
