Error exception 0xC0000805
The operation could not be completed due to bad clusters on disk.
This usually indicates the hard drive is failing and should be replaced. Most disks made since 2000 perform a transparent bad cluster replacement, so seeing this message is really bad and means the disk drive has used up all it's spare sectors.

Solutions and Fixes
Replace Defective Hard Drive
If you are unsure the hard drive has failed, check that the power and data cables are securely connected to both the drive and the motherboard. You might also swap the cables out with known good cables.
If everything else checks out, then you will need to replace the defective hard drive.
