 Hello there, thanks for submitting this entry. Actually this is a question and not a PR yet.
 We need some more information from you actually; while booting can you type ''boot -v''
 so that we have detailed information?
 Also to eliminate things; are you using a new ATA80 cable instead of the old ATA66 cables?
 Does this problem occur on other OS'ses as well?
 Kind regards,
