Hi,

 

to retrieve the data on the drive

 

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/use-ubuntu-live-cd-to-backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

 

please read this tutorial first and then download and burn to disc

 

the İSO, the link of which is provided there as well.

 

Make sure to follow the steps in the tutorial,as they are given.

 

FİRST though you need to access the BİOS  in case  the CD-DVD Drive,

 

is not  first  in the  boot order,put it there,Save AND Exit.

 

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

When you say that you tried to boot from a Windows CD

 

İs that CD a  BOOTABLE ONE?

 

Did you download an İSO to burn it to disc?

 

İf NOT than there's the problem,as to why you can not use it.

 

Also is it an  M/soft approved one?

After you put the CD-DVD in first order of boot in the BİOS

either disable network boot or  simply put it in the last row

 

The PXE  is the Preboot Execution Environment .
