    the update reboots the EVO and begins to install, shortly after, a hdd with a "?" appears. Then the Evo reboots again and starts android like normal.

    I wish I could give you a definite answer, but I'm assuming since there are two categories of stock roms right now:
    .1
    and
    .6

    I'm assuming there are two kinds for a reason. One can only deduce that you shouldn't update to .6 after rooting the stock .1 os, rather flash a new updated/rooted rom.

    If that doesn't work try the xda developer forums

    If you used Toast's root method you would not be able run the OTA update. It would attempt to, but would fail and reboot as described above. You could flash the rooted .6 ROM after you root using Toast's method so you could have root and the OTA update already applied.
