The problem is that I am receiving this message and being prompted to push the F1 Key to Boot but when I do that I get a non disk or disk error push any key to continue message. When I push any key the same Non disk message comes back, what can I do to get back into windows to back up my files?

It's too late to try to boot from this disk - try attaching it as a slave in another machine.  You may need a tool like GetDataBack from www.runtime.org to access the files.
