Put the HD into another PC running windoze, then use getdataback to scan the disk. If it finds your data register the software and copy the data off. Of course your ME Installation will be gone, but ME isn't worth restoring anyway...

You won't be able to restore ME as most if it has been overwritten, and getdataback doesn't write anything to the disk you are restoring from. It is good for recovering data but not the OS so you can start as before. Just run getdataback on another PC with the Disk to be recovered from attached as a 2nd disk.
