you can aquire it from

3. Reboot into TempleOS and follow the guide

when you get promped to type the I/O ports of your HDD, insert firstly the primary (0x18C8), then the secondary port (0x18C0)

When choosing the partition, take in account that TempleOS sees all the main partitions or partitions made under the extended partition (if present) that may or may not be visible on eighter Windows or Linux

If you already have Grub boot loader, use it as TempleOS's MBR boot loader is archaic, not permiting more than 4 primary partitions and requires entering the partition's number when booting, which is ordered by the MBR
