Hard disk drive smart status bad error message
Hard drive will not boot up

This tells you that the drive has a problem and may be due to fail shortly.
You can either clone the drive to a new (possibly larger) drive
Save your important files while you still have chance and put a new drive in re-install your operating system and copy your files back
Or wait and risk total failure and loss of data.
My option would be the first one

Hard drive is bad or is going to fail soon.
Backup your information and contact the maunufacturer of the computer or the hard drive for replacement or additional help.
In some very rare cases the S.M.A.R.T. implementation on your computer may have issues of its own and may need to be patched before replacing the hard drive.
If I am receiving the S.M.A.R.T. error, is it ok if I continue to use my hard drive and do not replace it?
As stated above, S.M.A.R.T. is designed to detect upcoming failures in the hard drive.
While it is possible that the hard drive may not fail for several months, it is still inevitable that the hard drive will fail.
It is ok to continue to use the hard drive, however, we highly recommend that if you are still under warranty that you consider getting the drive replaced before your warranty runs out.
hope this helps
