Did you shut it off while the HDD was working? I got that message after an update once. Nearly had a heart attack. :smileyvery-happy: Turned the system back off and on again and everything was fine. Try that first. If that doesn't work start doing Safe Mode options in order from 3 on. If all else fails you may need a new HDD. I hope you made back ups. Click the words Safe Mode for a link with a video explaining how to access it.

I said if all else fails you may need a new HDD. Sounds like that's the case. Any 2.5' SATA drive no higher than 9.5mm will fit. Check newegg.com
