In that case, I strongly suggest that you *not* follow any advice about
trying to recover a superblock on it.

What is the filesystem label on /dev/sda1 (run e2label /dev/sda1)? (I'm
guessing it's /boot.)

How important is the content of this system. Do you have another system
you can image the disk to in case you do something destructive?
