Default [Q] Stuck on Google Boot screen, Can still access CWM. How to proceed?

Okay so my father was about to flash to my rom. We Wiped data, cache, delvik, and installed rom. Said it worked and rebooted the phone. Phone tossed us into the CWM again and we tried flashing again and it gives us error #7. Soooo, We did NOT make a backup and every time we try to reflash the rom it gives us error 7. We can't get the Phone to be detected by the computer so we can at least grab his data. The thing here is we can't afford to lose the data on the phone (I know, should have made a backup). Any advice on how to proceed would help significantly. I've never seen this kind of issue in my years of rooting android phones. It just sits at the Google screen and doesn't go anywhere.

Phone is Verizon Galaxy nexus running (was) MIUI

Update: Tried flashing back his previous rom (MIUI) and I'm getting the error 7 again. Even though that past rom worked perfectly. This is all very frustrating.

What data do you want to keep? Internal storage won't be wiped when flashing ROMs, and as for app data, contacts, SMS, etc, as long as you can enter CWM, you can pull them out of the phone with "adb pull".

Well the problem is I don't have the Nexus adb installed onto the PC, so I can't connect to the nexus through USB. Can I install adb and everything without being in the rom? also I'm trying to get the Titanium backup folder and the photos.

If you can get into recovery, that means you can use adb. Just install the driver (if you are on Windows) and adb should work.

adb pull [remote file] [local file]

You can pull the whole folder from your phone. The folder of Titanium Backup should be /sdcard/TitaniumBackup or something similar. For photos it is in /sdcard/DCIM

I tried to install ADB for Nexus and it failed and I ran into many roadblocks. Can you link me a W8 64bit guide I can follow?

I don't know much about those drivers because I use Ubuntu (just for my phone). But you can refer to this thread.

I got ADB installed but cannot get the pull command to work. It's adb /pull and it's in a 0 folder and then Titanium backup and in the Tina user folder . What would be the command?

"adb pull /storage/emulated/0/YOUR-DIRECTORY/YOUR-FILE C:\" or something like that.
