Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
I'm trying to install OS in my laptop but it is showing the following error:

Please take backup of your hard disk and replace it.

Now i removed my hard disk from laptop and kept into laptop hard disk casing. But i'm not able to see drive in another system also.

How can i take backup of my data from hard disk.

Probably a SATA drive, plug into a desktop system as a second hard drive and see if it is recognized there, if it is then just copy files immediately (worry about transferring them later) while you still can and so you can replace the hard disk and get the system up and running again. If it is not recognized when attached to a desktop (plug in power and data cables but you can lean it temporarily an any safe flat surface inside or just outside the case) then it is probably dead and beyond recovery (except at great expense by specialty shops). In the future, always remember these words: Back Up, Back Up, Back Up.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
