This is a windows xp HP computer, the problem is I have a boot option and I've been booting from cd all this time. I accidently turned the pc off now the computer won't read the cd for some reason. Yes the cd works, I tried it in my new laptop I got this Christmas. All I want to get a few files off the old computer and I'll let it rest in peace. I've been using Hiren's BOOTCD 11 to boot my pc, and so I just made a bootable usb but there is a big issue. It reads Grub4dos instead of the Hiren disk, it says
Boot from find menu.lst, /boot/grub/menu.lst. /grub/menu.lst
and when it does that this shows up
Grubs4dos 0.4.5b 2011-04-23, Mem 639K/1014/0M, End: 351657 [Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word TAB list possible command completions of a device/filename ESC at anytime exits. ]
I type in boot then it says
Error 8: Kernel must be loaded before booting
