I was trying to update my VLC software because it was having problems, and ran the command to remove it. That popped up with a list of dependencies to be removed, and like an idiot who has no idea what he’s doing, I said yes. That kicked me out to a command prompt and now I’m trying to figure out how to recover from it.
After a lot of googling I’m realizing I seriously screwed that up. I can’t find any way to reinstall all the things I removed, and saw one post that suggested standing up a new workstation and associating my old drive with that. I’m now googling around trying to figure out how to do that.
Can anyone point me at an article that will show me how to take the vdi file from the old workstation and mount it on a new one so I can at least get all my data off of it?
