Yesterday I performed a hard-reset while Linux was booting. This led to a hard issue with the HDD (UNC while recovering journal). I had to use
ddrescue instead of
dd crashed on I/O error.
I did the following:
# ddrescue -f /dev/zero /dev/sda
It went through the whole 250 GB of
/dev/sda. After rebooting, both BIOS and LiveCD didn't see the HDD.
When I launch a LiveCD, there is no
/dev/sda, and no HDD in
SATA controller is fine:
$ lspci | grep -i sata 00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family SATA Controller [AHCI mode] (rev 02)
Question is: did I dg too deep? Is my HDD gone forever or is it fixable?
