"Even if the Windows emergency boot worked, how would he finish editing and then printing out the report? Instead I suggested he use a Linux Live-CD. My hunch was that although the Windows OS failed to boot, his files were in tact. So, I pulled a Knoppix Linux Live-CD from my bag and asked him to insert it into his drive. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a Live-CD allows you to boot Linux from the CD-ROM into memory without touching the OS on the hard disk.
