    Disk read error

    Installed additional hard drive for storage (WD 1 tb shown in bios setup as Sata 2); original hard drive with Windows 7 Samsung 500 GB (shown as Sata 1 in bios setup). Has worked fine for several weeks but today, would not boot. Setup indicated attempted boot from storage drive ( WD). Reset HDD boot priority to Samsung but get "disk read error" on reboot. Am unsure where to go next....is Samsung HDD bad?

    Disk read error does usually indicate the drive is bad.

    Check your HDD for errors

    Disk Check

    You can also use western digitals utility to scan the hdd for errors at boot
