During the bootup on my bootdrive /dev/sda I am seeing below messages repeated continuously for good 20 seconds.

[  121.285290] ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x0
[  121.291712] ata1.00: irq_stat 0x40000001

[  121.315029] ata1.00: status: { DRDY ERR }
[  121.319020] ata1.00: error: { ABRT }

It finally fails with below message

[  142.552677] end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 0
[  142.557725] Buffer I/O error on device sda, logical block 0
Tue Jun 26 08:29:10 UTC 2018: ERROR! No install boot device found, exiting...

Is there a way to recover this disk ? I am ok with formatting the drive.
