i will be brief.
i copied and pasted 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=3000' whereas what i wanted to put was 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb 1M count=3000'
you see the subtle difference?
well suffice to say i just screwed up my main laptop and it is now unusable!
is there ANY way i can get that back???
and to make it worse, the next step in the unbricking my mybook didnt work either! so now i have a bricked mybook with 200GB lot and a laptop with nothing on it at all, what a day!
a little help would be lovely!
