    Hi guys

    After a bit of help, my laptop is stuffed, I get a BSOD and an endless boot loop.

    I don't mind reformatting but I want to recover my files on there first,my problem is I can't even find my windows disk right now to reinstall.

    What I need is

    An OS that's free
    It can boot from a USB pen
    It will give me an environment where I can shift the files from my hard drive to a pen drive

    Been out of the game for a bit so not sure what's out there, any easy solutions?

    Thanks

    Have used Knoppix with great success before.

    The download is for dvd/cd but I followed a guide on you tube to make it into a bootable USB OS.

    Cheers atomic! I forgot to mention my laptop doesn't have a CD drive so that USB image should do the job

    Thanks
