Topic: My SSD is blank
Hello, I am new to Gparted, Liunux like applications. Following a Youtube video, I adventurously created a usb key to put GParted on it with Yumi. My purpose was to really erase all information on the SSD. I wanted to join the 2 partitions (the recovery one with what is my C drive on my Samsung SSD 500 gig. I succeeded to make only 1 partition and to put ntfs on it. It gives me 476gb (where is the rest).
Anyway, I restarted my pc and I have a pulsating underscore on a blank black screen. Nothing is working not even the GParted live usb. I did Ctrl + Alt + Del and put my windows 10 usb key and nothing is happening.
I opened a terminal and typed: "sudo parted /dev /sda unit s print". This game me the following: Warning: Unable to pend /dev read-write (Is a directory). /dev has been opened read-only.
I typed: sudo fdisk -l -u /dev /sda and I got the message: fdisk cannot open /dev:Is a directory.
What can I do?
