If you can see /home, but it's empty, then it's likely not mounted.
You'll have to see if there are any unmounted partitions and see if
that's where /home is. If you find it, just add it into fstab and mount
it. You can use fdisk, to see what partitions are on your disk. Then
try any that are not specifically listed in fstab.
