Looks like a variant of classic HDD failure and not because of a bad board/cache.

(On another note, I do know that certain Western Digital Caviar HDDs from pre-1998 or pre-1997, seem prone to bad sectors or a bad head and possibly general mechanical problems!)

(IIRC, I had one of the ones that I mentioned, a 1 GB, IIRC, which looked like it was manufactured in 1996 and they're would be a click of death beyond 238 MiB! The spinning was also unusually loud, IIRC, sounded like some friction against metal!)
