    Just take the hard drive out, take it over to your friend and plug it into his machine, go into windows explorer and you should be able to browse the drive, if you get a message saying that the drive isnt accessible and that you dont have the rights see this link on how to fix it.

    If your unsure how to add a drive see this link here.

    Regards

    take the drive out. Get a IDE or SATA to USB adapter (depending on the type of HD) and plug it into his machine.
