My install of linux throws the following errors upon boot:
efi: requested map not found. esrt: ESRT header is not in the memory map. i0842: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042.
Would these errors be indicative factors of disk corruption?

Your modern motherboard has no i8042 controller chip, but the most of board has (green, purple, round) PS/2 keyboard, mouse port for legacy BIOS compatibility. Usually, the (U)EFI/BIOS controls keyboard and mouse via USB as HID device default.
But, very old hardware and OS detect i8042 controller and search keyboard and mouse on boot, and display the error above. The error is no relation with hard disks, and can be ignored unless you cannot use the keyboard and mouse.
