It looks like the drive has a bad sector while it's trying to do some work. I had one do that, and no matter what I did, 49%, then a file copy error, then, BSOD.

I'd check with the manufacturer's site for the diagnostic tool. I feel like giving it to you, so you can save the hard time to search. What's the drive brand?
