I suggest keeping at least two flavors of Linux Live CDs for file recovery from Windows machines that wont' boot. Why more than one flavor? Well, sometimes one version or another won't work with certain hardware (especially older stuff IME). I also like to have a version of a Live CD installed on a USB drive, for the instance where a CD/DVD won't work and you need to retrieve photos, etc. from the same machine that doesn't boot.

I wish you luck in getting back all your files you need...
