Please read through this thread: Windows 7, winload 0x00000e9 I/O error . You will get a list of diagnostic tests you could try to see if the hard drive is recoverable. For that OP the replacing the hard drive was his solution.

The first things to try is to run CHKDSK /R from a command prompt in Windows. Then run a hard drive diagnostic program - one downloaded from the hard drive manufacturer that boots from a CD - to test the drive.

You want to determine whether the hard drive is bad or the W7 installation is bad.
