Error: attempt to read or write outside of disk "hd0" [SOLVED]
HDD = hard disk drive 

Why did you replace Vista?  Where you having any trouble with Vista before the Ubuntu install?

How old is the 1TiB backup HDD you are now using as the Ubuntu boot HDD?
Depending on the age the HDD may not be getting up to speed in time if it is beginning to malfunction.  Does the drive man a lot of noise spinning up or while it is being accessed?  Also, you should get a flashlight and examining the SATA cable to make sure they are securely attached to the HDD and the mother board.  For problem determination you could install Ubuntu again on a known working HDD. 

Did you go to the vendor web site to determine if any firmware or BIOS needs to be updated to run Ubuntu 18.04?  I would image your BIOS is way out of date on such an old machine.

Does your desktop have any additional HDDs installed besides the Ubuntu HDD?   Is your BIOS boot priority set for the Ubuntu HDD?
