  1. Ok, this is what i did,
    Hope this helps any one struggling with this problem!

    p.s. Befor doing this i had also messed with the drivers and tryed to get
    them to work. but to no avail. this is the only thing that worked for me. I
    even tryed to do a clean install. That was a long and good for nuthing night.

    There is a bug in the default SATA drivers for some Intel chipsets. It
    leaves on a setting that is intended only for laptop drives. Some
    desktop drives don't support it, and will sometimes freeze for a bit.

    The fix is to update to the latest Intel Matrix Storage drivers
    (currently 7.8).
