    So, lately, everything has been fairly slow (for the past couple of weeks). I just booted into Ubuntu, and it immediately says that my 'DISK HAS MANY BAD SECTORS'. I'm getting slightly worried over here. In the 'Attributes' section, it says:

    [b]Reallocated Sector Count[/b]
    Count of remapped sectors. When the hard drive finds a read/write/verification error, it marks the sector as "reallocated" and transfers data to a special reserved area (spare data)
    And then:
    [b]Current Pending Sector Count[/b]
    Number of sectors waiting to be remapped. If the sector waiting to be remapped is subsequently written or read successfully, this value is decreased and the sector is not remapped. Read errors on the sector will not remap the sector, it will only be remapped on a failed write attempt
    So, what is there I can do? Don't plan on getting a new hard drive :mad:.

    Man, I've had nothing but trouble with this goddamn this since I bought it. I've had much better luck with my previous hackintoshes.

    Of course you'd need to be running OS X if you expect any support.
