You don't need to know how too program the space shuttle to type a few
lines (hehe, even copy paste) into the terminal.

You are unwilling. If you want us to look at the information, you should
have the courtesy to provide us with what we ask, not make us lose our
time trying to figure out that we don't have that info. There is a good
reason we ask for _that_ information and not anything else.
Incidentally I looked over what your provided, and there is nothing of
use in it.

Nice. But the specs are useless

That being said, get a large cup of strong coffee, a good pack of
cigarettes (or Pringles if you don't smoke), and run the tools that we
ask you to (No, I did not say liveUSB, I have everyone on the list to
vouch for me I didn't say it).
