I am running two HD both split in two at 250 gigs each. Started having problems booting just the other day. Keep getting this message: "3rd Slave Hard Disk: S.M.A.R.T. Status Bad,Backup and Replace Press F1 to Resume" Quote marks are mine.

Hi - I would work quickly to backup that data. That drive is dying or dead.

When you press F1 do you know which drive it is booting from? Are you booting from the other drive now? Can you see the contents of the problem drive?

Good thing is that hard drives are super cheap these days!

Wow, I think I have been really stupid with this problem. I thought I had only 2 Slave drives, but I did have a third which was an external backup which has failed and I pulled it the other day, That is when the problem started. Not postive but do think It is fixed now. will let you know. Thanks for everyones help so far.
