Failure reading sector 0xfc from 'hd1' error...


Hi

I just installed CentOS 7.1, and I'm getting this error (screenshot attached) after grub menu boot. It stays there for few seconds and starts normal boot process.

The other OS's I have in my PC are Windows 10 and Kali. I've installed all these OSs through USB ie., downloaded ISO and DD them to USB Pen drive.

I don't know what this problem is and so I don't know from where I should start looking for problems.

Kindly guide me as what should I do? I even don't know which file's output I should attach so you can go through that.

Thanks you very much.

"Failure to read" is different to "Bad Sector. . ." type errors. A bad sector gives numbers that don't add up; a failure to read is more fundemental, and doesn't return numbers (i.e. the cpu sees 0xFF everywhere). It points at hardware, or a format error, maybe even a driver, that sort of thing.

Run a "SMART" self-diagnostic on this drive.

Let it run while you're driving to the store today to buy a replacement drive.

Sorry for the delayed response. When I posted this question and hit submit button, I got a message something like "Your question will be posted after administrator moderation..." I waited several hours for my thread to be posted, and when it didn't appear, i just gave up. I thought because I have attached photo from my mobile phone, my question got rejected automatically by forum software.

Now that its posted, here are my details:
