You mean you booted from a boot diskette? Since you say you have no OS I suspect this is what you did. Most likely what you are booting can't read the ntfs file system which is why you don't see anything.
No there are no MS utilities like knoppix or other third party utilities that can read the ntfs file system via a cd/dvd bootup.
Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
