The guide says it should look similar to this:

The "documented" command also limits it to writing 1K blocks (4MB). The way I showed you always worked for me, but some people had problems zeroing the entire device. It is NORMAL for an "out of space" error to occur when you do not limit the size, because the /dev/zero source is infinite capacity.

If that does not work, try it again with as documented in the guide.
