    It will be inaccessible, as it's formatted as ext3, which to my knowledge is unreadable by Windows.

    My recommendation is to try booting from a LiveCD, such as Knoppix, and seeing if you can mount the HD.

    Ext3 can be read from windows with an explorer-plugin, but I cant remember where to get it from and what it was called thought... Someone mentioned it here in the forums lately. But he can't boot from CD neither since he don't have a CD-ROM... Is the BIOS able to boot from USB?
