Windows 7: Dell desktop wont boot. Here is what I've tried

Try rescuing your data from the booted Win7 disk using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console . Otherwise if you can plug it in to another PC which has an OS you can try copying the files out that way.

Do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 to the new hard drive plugged in alone.
