Me, cursing myself as I am waiting for data being copied to an SSD - very slowly, due to me skimping on an USB SATA adapter and saving maybe €20 by buying the USB2 version instead of USB3.

Unfortunately, this was trying to fix a PC in my parent's shop, and the building closes at 10 pm. I just about finished copying the data and reassembling the system, only to find out it doesn't boot.

Disconnected everything and took the thing home to return tomorrow before they open up ... only to find out I forgot the bootable USB stick. And for some reason I don't have any spare USB sticks!?

Anyway, pulled this from the old CD collection, and fixed the damn partition table... :flan_facepalm:
