I have a box with 3 hard drives. 2 x 40GB and 1 x 250GB all sata.
Today, I restarted my box after an upgrade, and it just started going into a boot loop. right before reading fstab, it will act as if someone hit the reset button all on its own.
This has happened before a buch of times, but it had stopped doing it.
Today, I opened it up, unplugged the 250gb drive and restarted... booted up just fine.
turned it off, plugged the drive back in and restarted it, booted fine.
Does this sound like a failing hard drive to anyone else or is it just me?
FWIW, I'm backing up all my data from that drive into an external drive as I type this.
Any hints are appreciated. I just want to be sure the drive is the problem before I invest in a new one
