I wouldn't feel that way there are probably a number of unfamiliar steps in what I suggested. I forgot about the "Peppermint" tutorial option which looks more straightforward.

Hello Golden and mjf. I decided to try Peppermint. It looks a little more user friendly. I have been trying to download the 32 bit for the last 3 hours and hasn't even reached 50% yet. I'm not sure why. Usually don't have problems downloading. Brutal. I'll have to get back to you. Thank you.

Hi again Golden and mjf. The file finally downloaded. At the Peppermint 3 Tutorial, I followed the link. There wasn`t an option for 3, just 5. So I downloaded it anyways. I think I made the USB correctly. This what is on it.

I am lost from here.
I tried the USB, nothing happened. I don`t know how to get to BIOS.
I looked it up for my PC. The problem PC is a HP win.7 64bit Premium. It says to press esc repeatedly and then f10. That did nothing.
Godd I`m tired! Almost ready to throw in the towel.

Done! I don't believe it. I did it! I don't have to take my PC down the street to the Tech Guy. So glad I didn't throw in the towel. I rescued all my art projects from my HD, as well as some photos, videos and music.
My projects were a priority. I am so relieved to say the least.
I went out and bought a Seagate 2 TB External Drive. Maybe that is over kill, but I now have absolutely everything backed up.
I learned a lesson the hard way...BACK IT ALL UP!
How I did it. I finally figured out how to get to BIOS on my HP.
(press F10 repeatedly) I went wrong somewhere with Peppermint on the USB, so I made a Live Linux CD.
I found a tutorial on Lucid Puppy by jamanji here.
Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer
This is an excellent tutorial. Very easy to follow and understand.
Thank you jamanji!
I can't believe what I learn from visiting Windows 7 Forums and the helpful people here. I learn something new every time I visit.
Thanks Golden, mjf for the feedback and helping me out.
Thanks Sir George and Geogeks for the links as well.
Is there anything else I need to grab from my HD (besides what I did already) before I proceed to the next step? By the way, what is the next step? Run a Windows repair Disk?Cheers!

Please. I still need help.
I would like to know if there is anything else I need to rescue from my hard drive, besides my personal folders... before I proceed to the next step?

Without being able to boot into Windows 7? No, there is nothing else you can rescue.
