If you have any questions or requests for tutorials, post a comment or pm me.

Additional Information:

Don’t mess around in your BIOS unless you know what you’re doing!!

Change your boot order back to your hard drive as the first device when you’re done booting from a disk.

You can also boot from floppys or thumb drives, just put what ever device you want ahead of your hard drive.

This is most commonly done for installing a OS.

Recovering Deleted Files

If you have any questions or requests for tutorials, post a comment or pm me.

Links:
Recuva (latest version)
recuva.com/download/downloading

Another good free file recovery application I forgot to mention is
Restoration
snapfiles.com/php/download.php?id=106926&a=7119871&tag=234966&loc=2

Additional Information:

With Restoration all you do is click “Search Deleted Files” and then click the file you want to try to restore and then click “Restore by Copying”

These are not guaranteed, and make sure you have a recovery application installed beforehand, so you don’t have to risk overwitting by downloading and installing one.
