how can i transfer hdd files between two laptops?

i have two laptops both with vista and one no longer boots after downloading sp. when running startup repair it tells me that the system volume on the disk is corrupt. i was wondering if i could connect the two laptops somehow in order to transfer the hdd info from the laptop that does not boot to the one that does. please help.

also ive already tried to boot in safemode and each time it just freazes in crcdrive and does not load, and ive also tried lastworking configuration.

system restore begins and gets stuck on “finalizing file recovery” for hours
