Drop the bs= and count= bits, and let dd overwrite the entire drive with 0's 
until it runs out of space.  Might take a few hours, so pop a movie into the DVD 
player and kick back while dd wages a scorched earth campaign on the drive.

If Solaris refuses to work even after that, then it's broke, and it will just 
further prove that Linux is superior, for t3h win.
