Windows 7: BSOD! How to recover the data from Hard Drive & Reboot

BSOD! How to recover the data from Hard Drive & Reboot

My friend has a HP Pavilion dv6t 3100 CTO Laptop with factory installed Windows 7, 64bit. The Laptop is only 8 months old.
I guess after recent auto update of Windows, he started getting Blue Screen. I have read most of the threads here in this Forum plus few others & tried to solve the issue without any success.
All the Recovery Options under F1 to F12 failed to sort out the trouble. The machine will not start in safe mode also.
When I am connecting the HD (after taking out from the machine) to another Laptop, I can see there are 4 partitions - System G / Local Disk H / Recovery I / HP Tools J (this is FAT). "H" partition is the main partition & cannot be read.
Have made a recovery CD from my own laptop (64 bit Win 7) & tried to recover - no joy.
I am using a software called "Damaged Partition Recovery" by MiniTool Solution Ltd & can see all the original files & folders which are residing in the damaged partition. But am scared that if I recover the files, format the bad partition & reinstall the HD in the Laptop, it may not work.
I need some suggestion as to how to go about it? Which are the files which needs to be recovered & reinstalled in the fresly formatted disk to get back the original OS up & running.
I am not a computer literate guy, so a step by step guide is much appreciated.
Thanks a Lot in advance

Thanks Prett!
The partition does exists, but it is not accessible. I have recovered the entire content of the damaged partition by using the minitool to another external drive but wondering how to reinstall the recovered data (which also contains OS) so that my laptop boots.
