    In addition to the boot screen, I have attached a picture of the diagnostics for your viewing.
    Click image for larger version
    And also i noted down in case the picture doesnt seem clear, wat appeared in the diagnostic screen:

    Testing : WDC WD 3200AAJS-65M0A0 (WD-WMAV24021591) Drive
    Error code : BIOHD-8
    Error : A SMART test failed on the drive.
    Suggestion : Back up your important data.
    Suggestion : Please contact HP support.
    Any suggestion/s regarding this?

    No. SMART works at hardware level. It doesn't matter what you put on or installed on the drive. You need to get anything off it that you don't want to lose immediately, then replace it.

    Old drives fail very often and since yours is from XP days, it is surely failing as SMART told you.

    Will it work under Windows 7 then? Once the consumer preview expires, i might not go for purchasing the final windows 8. So i will have to revert to Windows 7.
