[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.

I went bck to the 4 year old Windows 7 laptop and have no regrets in doing so. But I haven't followed the Windows 8 updates. (Hardware)
