try this:

when it says to use the 64 bit drivers, just use the 32bit, i dont want to re-write that whole guide.
then try to re-install the atheros driver

EDIT: you could just probably skip down to where you run the installer, after seeing that you get pci issuse at boot, basicly it will install the pci drivers so pci devices can function. it would also be usefull if you posted a snippet of device manneger,also do you have any "unknown devices"?
