    Bootinfoscript showed Windows partition and info from inside it, so it did mount it. You should just be about to mount it can copy data, either from your install using Nautilus or from liveCD.

    Code:
    mount
    will tell you the location of the mounted partitions.
    Code:
    sudo blkid
    will give the information on the recognized partitions.
    Code:
    sudo udisks --mount /dev/sdXN  --mount-options rw
    will mount the partitions the device file name of which is /dev/sdXN.
    X may be "a", "b", and so on.
    N may be a number.
    If you want to mount /dev/sda3 (possibly windows system partition, NTFS filesystem) on /mnt,
    Code:
    sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt -o rw,uid=1000,umask=000
    You can change the above "1000" to your user name.
    Navigate to /mnt, then you will find the files in /dev/sda3.

    But I wonder if the wrong type (EFI system partition) of /dev/sda3 may prevent the correct mounting.
    Good luck!

    gpt partitioning will not make any difference.

    I have gpt and no issue seeing my NTFS partitions. But I always label them so I have a name I understand as often the auto mount uses the size or the UUID and is then not obvious which partition is which.

    You can use Disk Utility to label. But gpt partitions have two different labels. You have the gpt partition label and a partition label. Not sure which is used for mounting.
