after installing the cable go to the disk manager and update the list. the new HDD would be appear, then go to the disk management and label the new hdd that has found... it may takes time to find the HDD because of the bad sector, let it do it.

Better check the physical disk first. Has it partitions, if not... maybe they can be recovered. Has it bad blocks on surface.

All can be done with partition wizard.

Do you mean it found a logical partition? Is it type NTFS? What's the size?
It's not a NFTS type, it says that it's a logical drive type; file system is BAD DISK; capacity is 149 gb; unused 0b; status : None

after 3 hours of testing (I had to repeat the test this morning, because the power went out over the night) it has done 12% and none partitions appeared... so i closed the setup and came back here.

Keep it running... It will go on for as much as 5hrs, if it does find a partition it will tell you i think... report back if it does

Whole disk was 1 partition? No unallocated space at beginning?

Try this Video heop on how to perform disk surface test with Partition Wizard partition manager?
Let it run for 15 minutes. No bad sectors?

logical is normal and no problem. If it doesn't know the file system it can't determin what is used/unused and says unused 0bytes.

So there is 1 partition on that disk? It occupies all the space on physical disk, so disk capacity is 149GB?
