So here is where i am at...
I have followed all instructions on recovering data from the hard drive (finding the partiton, accessing the correct partition) now I need to know how to transfer this partition on my external HD so i can format the internal HD and reload windows. Please help

after mounting the partitions you can use the "cp" (copy) statement.
There are also a curses based tool named "mc"
You can also use the graphical fielemanager "emelfm2"

Copy of bad blocks can stop the process. Make in this case a 1:1 image from the bad partition with ddresue.
