Hmm, I'd first check if dmesg shows SATA error (bus reset, seek
failed, etc) and if that is not the case, I'd do a memory test
(memtest86 is very nice for this).
Seeing that the OP is getting kernel panics, my first guess is memory
problems (I fail to see how a bad HDD would cause panics), but I might
be wrong...
