I'm trying to determine weather its the drive, or a problem with the IDE controller or motherboard. Anyone have any ideas?
In my experience this is indicative of a drive on it's last legs. IDE drives usually take out the system (hard lock) when they go (even in mirrors with MD RAID, often even with 'hardware' RAIDs that aren't hardware RAID at all).
