    Thats no problem,

    If you have access to another pc, I'll give you a link via pm from where you can download the right files. Save them on a USB and extract the zip file. DON'T extract the files in a map, because then they are not accessible.
    The files are about 300MB.

    There are some possibilities with the command prompt, but that'll take a lot of research (and its kinda late for me)

    Use this link to create a bootable winSE containing the following (thanks to KYHI for making this available)
    Click image for larger version

    and boot from it. Best is to create this on an empty USB.

    After you've done this let me know and I'll post a few things to try.
