reparing hard drive on another computer

Sony / Vgn-sz220

Specs: Windows XP

I have a sony vaio laptop vgn-sz220. I turn it on, and get a blue screen with an unmountable_boot_volume error. I have tried booting the computer from the xp cd, but there is no option to boot from cd or dvd rom. I tried using the recovery utility wizard that comes with all sony vaios, but I keep getting an error message.

My only option left is to use the recovery cds. But, I need to extract all of the files from the hard drive using another computer.

I was wonering if I can repair the messed up driver on the hard drive if I slave it onto another computer??? If so, how do I do it???

... hav'nt we met b4?

... tap either "F2" or "F3" key to enter bios on sony vaio then alter the boot sequence to cdrom first... save on bios exit.
