I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should be able to boot off a OEM CD to repair windows and get it back into bootable state.

Worse case scneario you will have to pull the HD to mount it in another computer to at least make the copies of the files and documents.  You may want to consider doing this anyways just to be safe.
