hard drive failed after install attempt

Question

hard drive failed after install attempt

Hello!

I have two hard drives. One is booting windows, the other booted Linux. The one that has Linux is a 1TB hard drive with data that i do not wish to lose. Today i wanted to replace Linux with Hackintosh. After booting Hackintosh installation, i entered disk utility to delete every linux partition from the 1tb drive, but when i pressed the erase button (into mac os journaled fs) on a partition, it gave some kind of posix error (i didn't noted the error text), so i just booted back to windows to see what was with that. When i entered the file explorer, i saw that the partitions from that disk were missing. In disk management, the disk was there and online, but not any of the partitions i had, not even unallocated space, just grey. I stumbled upon testdisk and analysed that drive, but i don't know what options do i have next. I don't care about the linux partitions, but the other have very important data that i do not wish to lose. Here is the log file. Many thanks in advance! (sorry if somehow i posted this topic twice)
