Data retrieval costs from £1500. If you cannot boot then you are in trouble and I assume that you did not have a backup DVD/CD/memory stick? There are data recovery programmes that are freebies but as the drive will not boot you are in a bit of trouble.
....however, if you download Unbuntu from click here you will be able to boot with the CD. It is a large d/l and I'm sure that myself or someone else could send you a CD. It is a self contained Linux OS and if possible, you should be able to see the C drive assuming that it is not too badly knackered. Borrow a memory stick and transfer the photos to it.
You could also borrow Barts' PE which will also remotely boot the computer but using XP. Report back with what you decide. I also have a few 'specially made' programmes that will boot from a CD and will alow recovery from a drive if it is not too badly done in .
