    Well I never thought about this happening anytime soon, but it did. The weird part is that the Windows partition still boots up and works fine. Should I go ahead and replace/upgrade the HD now or just reinstall OSX? I'm kind of thinking about upgrading...

    I'd restore from your backup first before replacing the drive.

    I don't think I do anymore. Thanks. I went ahead and bought a new HD. I'm going to try to install it tonight or tomorrow.
