Is windows.old folder move in restore possible?

Here is my problem; I have a windows 7 installed on my hard drive (not this one), That windows 7 is a reinstall of a previous windows 7, thus it has a windows.old folder.
I hadn't used the drive for a while, when i tried to use it, to get my stuff off it, windows would not load and it kept attempting repairs.
So my question is, what can I do, to get both the files from the windows.old folder, as well as my documents and such from the current o.s?
