Default Issue with booting Mini 9 - 02-21-2010, 07:16 PM

Bought my mini 9 over a year ago and upgraded it to a 64gb runcore drive. Worked fine until a week ago where it froze. I restarted it and a blue screen popped up. I reinstalled windows earlier today and all seemed fine till I rebooted it and now after the POST screen I get the _ in the upper left corner and after a few minutes a "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart". I dunno if the harddrive is dead, or maybe it is from a windows update (as I did install the updates before). I can hook it up and read the files from my desktop via the USB without a issue.

What could it be? How can I fix it?
