I have encountered the following issue with the installation of RASPBIAN on my RPi Model B. I have downloaded the raspbian image but when I flash it on my SD card via
sudo dd bs=1M if=image.img of=/dev/sdb1, which, besides, returns no errors, I end up with a corrupted partition table at
/dev/sdb (checked it using gparted). I cannot fathom what's happening, provided that both the image is ok and my drive is unmounted prior to dumping.
Thanks in advance
