HP probook does not recognize M2 SSD disk

HP Recommended
Probook 640 G5

I tried to migrate a partition from my old laptop to my new probook from a linux live cd using dd.
In the middle I canceled the process and when I kept trying errors began to appear.
The last thing I did was to

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=500M count=1

tto the whole disk (SSD M2)
Now no operating system (Linux or Windows) recognizes the disk, the disk is not listed, it is as if it did not exist.
Even if I try to run `System Diagnostics` from the laptop's UEFI menu it gets stuck and never ends.


Any suggestion? Is my disk completely broken?

I don't know WHAT you were trying to migrate -- but if you were attempting to move the OS from one PC to another, that is a licensing violation -- because the OS version that comes preloaded is licensed to the PC, not to the owner.
