Windows doesnt start, loader keeps rebooting

#1
Eee PC 1025c
Windows 7 starter + Ubuntu 10.04

Yesterday the notebook was working properly. I turned it off the way it's written in the books and everything seemed OK. But this morning when I tried to power it up, the Asus logo appeared, then Atheros boot agent, Asus logo again, and finally black screen with a horizontal blinking white cursor. It keeps blinking for about a minute, then reboots. I tried booting a Ubuntu live USB that I know works and has never given me errors, but now I got "aufs mount failed no space left on /root". I am starting to think it's either the HDD or the motherboard failing. Any ideas? What could happen overnight when the notebook wasn't even being used?
