Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The hard disk had previously been the primary hdd for this computer. The only OS ever installed was ubuntu server, without encryption or LVM. My intention is to only keep the files that were on /home/ but I can't seem to mount it.

fdisk -l 

outputs:

fdisk: unable to seek on /dev/sdb: Invalid argument

and

dmesg | tail 

gives me:

[   61.946625] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdb] No Caching mode page present

Any help would be really appreciated.
