Reinstalling windows 7 and need some advice to not lose my old data
My computer crashed and I am unable to get windows to start it goes all the way to the login screen but never loads so that i can type my password it just keeps trying to load. anyways Ive tried all the other routes to repair and no luck now im at the point where I would just prefer to do a new install, but I cant access my important work related files to back them up onto an external HD. I have my Windows 7 disk that I made when I got my computer new.
I put that in and boot from the disk I brings me to the partition menu with no upgrade option (I think that is the option I need in order to create the Windows old folder?) So my question is If I format the System Partition and reinstall windows on that partition will my data on the data partition be effected? or will the data partition still be available once the fresh system is installed?
Thanks in advance for all the help

Included here are steps to copy out stranded data: Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot I'd also scan to see if you're infected first as if so your data should not be reimported until it is thoroughly disinfected with your AV and MB.
Then follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same for retail.
