it looks like you might have a loose cable connected to your cd room....

Was that the only thing you were doing at the time...also how did you install the client from a cd or from a network share?

I was installing from the local hard drive. I had just copied the files down from a network share to that system and ran the setup from there.

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

The system has two arrays configured. First one is a RAID 1 mirror for the OS, the second is a RAID 5 for data. Both are showing ok in the Server Administrator tool. The mirror has a Read Policy of NoReadAhead, Write Policy of WriteBack and Disk Cache Policy is Disabled. The RAID 5 has the same except that the Disk Cache Policy is Enabled. The RADI Firmware and Drivers are both behind a bit

mmmm....Well first of you might want to just take a quick look to see if there are new firmware upgrades for your raids. dont install them but see what the release notes says it fixes. i think that is the best way to go for the moment

This usually means a faulty drive.

Why did ir happen after the antivirus? Easy maybe the busted sector was in a fairly unused part of the disk. When you install an antivirus usually the first order of business is to scan all the drive and all your files. Any (reading) errors in you disk will be represented like that. Usually in IDE drives, if one of them has trouble reading, it will bring down the whole channel (both drives connected to it) and it will slow the computer to a crawl.

I would recommend backing up right now, before anything. But most likely your disk is a failing
