comment How to find internal hard drive when booting from USB?
Yeah, it appeared in the File Manager as I would have expected upon rebooting. We were able to get some of the files off, but then we'd hit a bad sector and then the drive would either unmount, stop showing files, or just stop copying files.

@Seth nope. :( Hoping this isn't bad news for the hard drive...is it possible that when I switched the boot order I did something to keep it from showing at all?

@Seth, sorry my Ubuntu lingo isn't all there :/ File Manager = Home Folder? I went into that and didn't see anything; only the "Computer" and "Network" headers on the left. imgur.com/0juvgfH

@Lucio - hmm...not sure. I'm guessing 160 or 250GB based on my friend's guess and some sites that show specs.

@Seth, I opened up System Monitor and went to File Systems...I see /dev/sdb1 mounted twice and /dev/loop0...I don't think any of those are the internal drive.

comment How to find internal hard drive when booting from USB?
@Lucio - oh man, was hoping that wasn't my problem :P I re-ran it with sudo and didn't get an error, but I went into mnt/point and looked at the contents and it really looks like my flash drive's contents. It has wubi.exe and stuff in it; it's identical to the contents of the cdrom folder. So I can pretty confidently say it's not my internal hard drive.
