Oh. That. It's simply the dialog that Knoppix gives you when you select a
directory to right click and "copy" and then you select a location to right
click and "paste".
Anyway, I picked up the machine from the Microsoft Store today where they
found nothing wrong with the HDD or memory, but they couldn't recover the
operating system. I asked them what they ran and they spit off a bunch of
words (fixboot, scanos, chkdsk, diskpart) but mostly they said they used
"bcdedit" after running full diagnostics on the HDD and RAM and

It's just the normal copy and paste of Knoppix.
But it's all over. The Microsoft Update bricked OS is a goner because I
tried both Microsoft telephone support and the retail store in the middle
of Silicon Valley (right across from the Apple store).
The bricked MS Windows 10 update is just a disk drive now.
Windows seems to mount it just fine once I bought a SATA III cable and a
molex-to-SATA connector to hook it up as a second HDD.
(BTW, I have no idea what that 100GB "system reserved" partition is as I
didn't make it to my knowledge.)
