I PUT THE WRONG TITLE, IT SHOULD BE "INFINITE BOOT CYCLES AND DATA RECOVERY"
So, I had a previous post about my Optiplex 745 crashing randomly because of Event ID 10016 in Windows 10. Now, yesterday, I turned it on to try troubleshoot more, it crashed twice, and then Windows actually tried to fix itself by going through Windows Recovery. Then it finished, booted, and... crashed. And then it got stuck in an infinite boot cycle. I say infinite because it can't get past the BIOS "Dell" booting screen. It won't boot into BIOS/Setup, I can't boot it into the Boot Menu because I never made a utility partition on my HDD, and it won't even boot up with my flash drive that has Windows 10 on it.
I can't find a way to fix this. I tried everything, but I think I finally killed it. Time to switch my machine to a Dell XPS 8700 system. Any suggestions on how to get my data off the drive other than taking it out and hooking it to another PC? I want to try and save my KSP save files and mods.

Thanks, any help will be appreciated.
