You may be able to simply copy the file from your current windows install (that is if you are using windows 7) or from a windows 7 iso. But it may not be that simple. While you are waiting for the download I would recommend reading up on mini dump files and how to read them if you don't already know about them. The big thing will be the stop error and (if there is one) the file(s) it lists right after
Alright, no problem. Download is complete it asks for Step 3: Persistence. And Step 4: Options. In step four, should I click all of them?

I just like parted magic for that stuff, it has a bunch of HDD tools and such and it is a smaller iso than other linux live CDs.
All you need to do is mount the drives in the linux OS and you can search though them and transfer data as needed.
And for both of you, the screen flashes so fast, so I decided to take a video and post the result.
It is far from clear, but it might be helpful for you both.
