Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

Tried to install update and computer crashed

\015 Own an IBM ThinkPad T30, installed an update but computer crashed. Chose to start Windows Normally and got "Setup was interrupted. Restoring prior configuration" on screen which takes a long time to load. And then an error occurs. Also took another path that led to Recovery Program 5.7 but don't want to clear hard drive and start again. Any way to get to the normal Windows screen to use the computer without losing information?\015
