As it says in the tutorial resolve repeat errors by googling the error text and identifying numbers, to see how others have solved them. Take your time to get to know what's happening with your system. This is how we learn.

Thanks. Problem identified! "The device \Device\Ide\iaStor0 did not respond within the timeout period." is the reason why starting windows hangs. Look like I need to make some changes in the registry according to what is said over the internet.

I added port0-5 under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor\Parameters\Portn

each port has: LPM, LPMSTATE, LPMDSTATE and DIMP keys in them

still not working.... Damn.
