My new goal is to recover the broken link in my secondary HDD to restablish a system.
First step:
to find out how is recognized my secondary HDD
Trying with fdisk
Output
fdisk /dev/sda
fdisk /dev/sdb

Recognizes both and also shows us UUID and GB

I know that my secondary HDD is /dev/sda

Now I have to find out how to make a custom entry in GRUB2

I have reviewd the information in help.ubuntu.com ... GRUB2
and now I know that I have to do the custom entry in /etc/grub.d/40customentry...

Now I only have to
set-root= use the proper UUID that I found in fdisk /dev/sda
linux /boot/grub/... find my vmlinuz
initrd /boot/grub/... find my initrd

and cross my fingers

I had an old Fujitsu notebook with W95 as OS with 2 partitions on it C:for OS; D: for Data. toguether a 5 GB HDDD. I made a third partition with the help of HAOS tools dividing C in half with volume EXT3 (1600 MB) took some space from D: for a fourth partition with volume EXT3 (50 MB) and another with volume EXT2 (120 MB).
This laptop has two problems, one is that there is a bad sector in HDD, which I hopefully has isolated when I made the partitions and a problem with memory.
