Extracting files on windows 7 disk different version

My sisters computer running windows 7 home has some corrupt startup files that scannow can not repair. Can I use my windows 7 professional disk to extract the files from? I don't know if the different versions will matter. She did not get a disk with her computer.

You could try a System Restore!
