My HDD not showing up in Ubuntu(22.10)

wf flag

Hi I'm very new to Ubuntu, and I tried searching for this problem but couldn't find any suitable solution.

I have two disks in my machine. I wiped windows and installed Ubuntu. I didn't do anything extra while installing just followed the reccomended installation procedure. I chose "Erase disk and install Ubuntu" and didn't set up encryption. I can't seem to access the other disk.It doesn't show in Disk Usage Analyzer.

It doesn't show in the ubuntu command line.

Edit: Hey matigo, I tried sudo lsblk -f and got this:

│    vfat   FAT32       D80D-C48D                             504.9M     1% /boot/efi
     ext4   1.0         6bb4ca7d-2460-43d5-8a2d-7458e13e75f4  407.7G     6% /var/snap/firefox/common/host-hunspell

also: forsudo fdisk -l | grep sd (probs just the same thing, but sorry no idea)

Welcome to AskUbuntu. Could you [edit] your question to show the output of this command: `sudo lsblk -f`. This will show all storage devices in the machine as well as their file systems and mount points

Editting the post somehow messed up the images, sorry.

Silly question, but does the other disk appear in your system's UEFI/BIOS? Is it a SATA device or is it NVMe?

@matigo I'm sorry, I've no idea. How can I check that? It used to work alright with windows and I just installed Ubuntu so I'm not sure. Also how can I check if the "other disk appear in your system's UEFI/BIOS"? I'm so sorry that I don't know these things.

hi @matigo lspci shows a SATA controller, did you mean that?
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
