You should try to disable ata dma. Press any key(besides enter) when you
see the following message:
Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt.
That should fix -I mean you 'll be able to boot your system- the problem, but
disk access will be slower without DMA and will be using much CPU power.
Then you can provide more info using dmesg and pciconf -lv and get more help.
