Burn ISO to CD disc, change Boot settings to let CD/DVD drive boot from first, or if you have a Dell just press F12.

Use an ext. HDD or an USB Drive to move your sh*t out. Iono about connecting your Macbook to a PC.

get an external hard drive enclosure, take out the drive from your PC and put it in there.

theres loads of different types, USB, Firewire eSata

just depends on the connection you have

they were about £15 last time i checked i think.

make sure you get the right one. normal internal PC drive is 3.5" laptop drive is 2.5"

best solution i can think of thats doesnt require major work

if by dead you mean your os won't boot - buy another hdd, install an os and use that to boot

use the old hdd as the slave/secondary.

easiest thing i can think is buy the enclosure and make it an external drive

no idea Macs use a different disk format, but im sure if its NTFS i think Mac OS can read that, bt dont quote me on it

edit

found this

not a mac user so i dont know much, but from what i know theres only one format that can work on both is FAT32, which has a disk size limit of 2TB and a file limit of 4GB

id say format it as NTFS (it prob will be already if its windows) then use that paragons program i posted, no idea on the performance of it, but it should be alright
