Since your machine does not take floppies, you might have to make a bootable thumb drive (USB drive). Hopefully, her computer is configured to boot from the thumb drive before it tries to boot from the hard drive. As for making the bootable drive, I'd say google or check microsoft's website. There should be an option on there to make a bare bones boot drive.

If the problem is registry and not a bad hard drive, at least you'll be able to copy files off the hard drive and might possibly be able to repair the registry file. The process is a little advanced to explain across messages and might require a trip to a professional. If you decide to hire a pro, chances are they'll have a boot disk already.
