I dont want to create or delete anything, I am afraid to lose the data on the drive, anyone knows what will happen if I do those things?
DO NOT do any of that. Your drive will be promptly formatted. And well those options should not effect the hard drive from being detected. I have one of those cheap RAID cards and it works fine without building a RAID set, I had 2 drives connected to it just normally.
Have you tried different ports on the motherboard? I'd take a guess and say 2 of them are on a secondary SATA controller (probably the black ones). I'd use the red ports.
However I have a feeling your hard drive might be dead.

At this point, I'm thinking it's best to follow through with that and contact them about data recovery.
