[SOLVED] Just hosed the system with dd, (I think)view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Meaning to install Fedora onto a usb key, I just did Code: dd if bs=4M if=Fedora-20.......iso of=/dev/sda && sync Laptop is still running but ls / shows nothing, although ls /etc shows the contents of that directory. Same for other top level directories. Nautilus does the same, nothing at / but /etc was displayed. I assume this means it's hosed? (HowTos)
