Laptop HDD (IDE, 60GB) with Windows XP doesn't boot. I tried to boot from LiveUSB Ubuntu, and tried commands for detecting disks (sudo fdisk -l, fsblk -o), disk is not presented (Linux doesn't see it).
I tried to remove HDD from laptop and connect via reduction to my computer with Windows 7 and Disk Manager see it, but device is unknwon and need to be initialized. When I click on Initialize and choose: MBR initialization.
Device is not ready.
TestDisk and MiniTool Partition Wizard doesn't see this disk.
