Summary0007266: Cannot access internal HDD after installing Linux. After boot during RAM initialization shows errors that I am not familiar.
DescriptionBefore installing Linux my laptop was running on Windows 10.

I have a SSD of 256 GB storage and a internal HDD of 1 TB.

I installed Linux with a bootable pen-drive. During installation I came to a Disk Partition point where I could see my SSD but HDD was not showing. I had not formatted my HDD before installation which I thought was the reason and continued installation process on SSD.

After installation, During RAM initialization shows some errors and starts normally as it should.

Error log can be seen by command dmesg (attached)
Additional Informationon BIOS


What I have tried.

    Gparted does not show the device so I cannot mount it


I do not know the partition names on exact case But tried some guess like Appsandgames (F:) but returned not found error. I donot know where to use is to be exact.

Partitions Before Installation

- Local Disk (C:) (SSD) 256 GB
- Myname (D:) (HDD)
- Mybrothersname (E:) (HDD)
- AppsandGames (F:) (HDD) (Do not remember the exact case).

My PC model ASUS Vivobook s15

Is there any way to to get back access to my HDD. Data on it are not important?
