I had my GRUB partition of 1 MB starting at block 2049. My BIOS did not recognize it, so I decided to move it to the beginning of the disk using the command
dd if=/dev/sda5 of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=2048
Now I cannot see the partitions at all. Before the operation the first 2048 segments( 1MB) had not format at all and where unrecognized by parted.
I made an image in other disk, dev/sdc, and running gdisk on the image got
sudo gdisk -l /dev/sdc GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.8 Caution: invalid main GPT header, but valid backup; regenerating main header from backup! Caution! After loading partitions, the CRC doesn't check out! Warning! Main partition table CRC mismatch! Loaded backup partition table instead of main partition table! Warning! One or more CRCs don't match. You should repair the disk! Partition table scan: MBR: not present BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: damaged Found invalid MBR and corrupt GPT. What do you want to do?

sfdisk -l /dev/sdc output still is

fsck -y /dev/sdc says
sudo fsck -y /dev/sdc fsck from util-linux 2.20.1 e2fsck 1.42.9 (4-Feb-2014) ext2fs_open2: Bad magic number in super-block fsck.ext2: Superbloque es inválido, intentando los bloques de respaldo... fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block mientras se intentaba abrir /dev/sdc The superbloque could not be read or does not describe a valid ext2/ext3/ext4 sistema de ficheros. If the dispositivo is valid and it really contains an ext2/ext3/ext4 sistema de ficheros (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superbloque is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superbloque: e2fsck -b 8193 <dispositivo> or e2fsck -b 32768 <dispositivo>
Is there is a way to recover my partitions or at least my data? I guess writing something else in these first segments should work.
