[solved] Server-linux problems, maybe disk dead?

  1. Hi, first my ssh connection was dropping/freezing when copying a large number of files. After ubuntu 14.04.5 reinstall (the install froze on remove install media), I've was getting "task systemd-udevd blocked for more than 120 seconds, Not tainted 4.4.0-31-generic #50 14.04.1-Ubuntu" and could not reboot or power off. Then I formatted the disk and booted Ubuntu live desktop form USB. After that I run badblocks -svw and it froze on "Testing with pattern 0xff on 42.66%" the tests before completed. Does this mean that the disk is dead or can be something else?

    Do some tests:

    smartctl -a /dev/sdX | less
    badblocks -v /dev/sdX
  3. run the commands from a booted gparted live and no problems found, so disk is ok.
