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.

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

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
