Hi Wetz... I'm sorry you're having a problem with your system. This error would indicate that your hard drive needs to be replaced.
What this is indicating is that the hard drive's internal SMART controller Drive Self Test (DST) has reported an error. While it might be limited to the portion of the drive containing the operating system boot code, it might be a systemic failure. The SMART check only attempts to make a prediction of failure; it watches for the drive to report errors, and when the number and type of errors pass a certain threshold it will then report an error. In both cases, HP PC Hardware Diagnostics simly instructs the drive to perform the appropriate check /test, and reports on the results.
I hope this helps. Please reply back here with the results of your troubleshooting and repair!
