I'm looking at the above reply regarding the "\" backslash, but it appears that the backslash is representing a ?? line wrap?? as thats right where the page ends?

Getting UUID is as simple as entering the command "blkid" in a terminal (without quotes), should be able to do it as a regular user.
If that doesn't work, try this in a terminal: ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid
