hello everyone,

I have Seagate ST3000DM001 PN 1CH166-510 FW CC27 hard drive disk.
It spins rather normally but it's not recognized in BIOS and there is no access to data.
I have got from other ST3000DM001 drive the same pcb board (100717520 rev B) and resoldered eeprom.
After new pcb installed nothing changed, disk is still not detected.
I have connected it to terminal using usb to RS232 TTL adapter and got some logs as follows.

at starting
Boot 0x40M

(P) SATA Reset

sometimes TCC code change at start.

I also have cleared smart data with N1 command but nothing changed (I have read earlier smart data with N5 command).
What else I can do to recover data from that disk?
Can it be an eeprom chip or firmware issue?
In few days I should have one more exactly the same ST3000DM001 PN 1CH166-510 with the same firmware CC27.
This drive has got bad sectors but is always properly recognized by system so it can be a donor.
Can I use the pcb board from it or resolder the eeprom chip and check in the patient drive?
Can it be useful or not?
I found information that every 7200.14 drive has got an unique firmware and it can be not possible to use the pcb (firmware) from another drive even if it has the same PN and similar SN.
Is that right?

After detection by system I would like to clone the disk sector by sector.

Any suggestions what I can do more to see the drive in BIOS?
I have usb to RS232 TTL adapter only.
I am counting on your help guys.
