My laptop has HDD and SSD installed (HDD replaced optical drive). OS Windows is installed on SSD. But something wrong has happened and I need to boot from USB in order to save some files from SSD.

But when booting from USB with installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it I can not see my SSD drive. All HDD partitions are listed as normal.

I've tried fdisk -l, lsblk to view missed drive but with no luck.

UPDATE: I can see that drive if I choose "Install Ubuntu...".


Oh, got it. I've removed my SSD from BIOS boot priorities queue and now I can see it in Ubuntu.
