    That was exactly what i wanted you to do. Glad you didn't lose your data.

    You can do the decompression and writing in one step:

    Code:
    bunzip2  /home/user/Desktop/ip511a.img | dd of=/dev/sda
    What? I'm not allowed to say fsck? Then how is i supposed to help people fix their filesystems?

    Perfect, this will save me a lot of headache in the future. Thank you for your help. I'm imagining an almost unlimited amount of uses for this information.
