That was my initial plan (after which I posted here) but I was unable to use many commands (Like ls mount cp etc). I was unsure as to where and how I either get these commands (ie how to mount the hard drive with the commands or relevant part of the disc). Perhaps I was not going to the right section?

I went to Fixit -> Emergency Holographic Shell (Or something along those lines) -> ttyv4

What do I do from there in order to use the commands?
