    You say your OS has crashed. I'll assume you're correct even though it's often difficult to distinguish between an OS crash and a HDD crash. Again, assuming your HDD is OK you need an OS to view the contents. You can install the HDD in an external enclosure and view the content on a different computer using the same OS. If that doesn't work you may have an HDD crash instead.
