Log into Windows/OSX and grab a copy of your files off the machine, or perform Data Recovery Efforts to get a copy of your data off the machine.
Use a friends Lion machine and make a Lion Recovery USB
Option boot and Erase with Zero in Disk Utility the entire internal drive (select the drive name and size), install the Lion Recovery, reboot into Lion Recovery (command r) and install Lion fresh from Apple's servers
reboot, setup with same user name, software update, install all programs from fresh sources, create bootcamp/install Windows, return users files from backup last for best performance
consider making bootable clones, will copy the Lion Recovery for backup
