The HD seems to be OK: . It is a laptop, 
and it was purchased 5 months ago!

It seems I am now able to boot (worked twice already) with the fstab 
options `noauto,x-systemd.automount` on /boot/efi, /home and swap. I 
still don't really know why that would be needed, though, neither it 
seems to be a really good idea!
