I might try, but it is not "just". I don't want to risk losing my personal AND work computer for however long it might take me to try to do it. I'll return if I get thus far and still have problems mounting

but you still have the live usb option.
with that you can still access user data on your hard drive.

you can even install and run a system on a usb (not to be confused with creating a bootable live media).
