[SOLVED] Restore files from crashed Windows XP with Fedora 9 Live CD?
As I mentioned in the title, I need to know how to restore my files on my crashed Windows XP desktop with the Fedora 9 Live CDi. And after files have been transferred to my Mac (going to do so with USB Flash drive), I want to upgrade the OS to that of Fedora 9.
I got the Fedora 9 Live CD from a store which downloaded it online & burned it on to a CD for me. It actually worked when I got home but: 1. The desktop doesn't show a taskbar. And 2. I can't see the File Manager (which I should on the desktop) in order to locate the files that I'm trying to restore. There are only 4 icons on the desktop:
2. Fedora's Home
3. Install to Hard Drive
I would have used the Windows XP recovery mode as I borrowed that disk from someone to upgrade/install XP on the computer. Unfortunately, that person doesn't have that disk anymore either.
Someone also mentioned here that I could pull that drive out of the PC and temporarily connect it to a controller in another PC to get those files. I'd like to now how I can do this.
Also, can I connect it with some kind of cable to my MacBook Pro to directly transfer the data over?
Can you please be a bit specific? This is my first time doing anything with Linux.
I'm really looking forward to any insight into the matter.
P.S. Is there a place to get this done? I live near Toronto, (Ontario) Canada in Brampton so a store near that would be great but I'm willing to compromise on this.
