I am getting the UNMOUNTABLE BOOT VOLUME error on my Samsung laptop which does not have a CD Rom drive. I tried to merge the C and D partitions to get more space but since then the laptop does not start up anymore.

I dont care about the laptop, just about some pictures on there which I did not back up yet. I really hope someone can help me?!!

I am a new user, so cant post pictures, but can send a screenshot if needed.

Linux LiveCD can do. You can download an image and burn to USB then boot it. HDD Partition contents (files) should be present.

Previous partition layout can be restored eventually using partition recovery tools. For example google for "testdisk" - very good tool but some knowledge on disk and partition layout is expected. Do not commit changes with testdisk unless you understand what you are doing.
