You have a SATA Drive. This can cause this problem if you do not have my SATA Patch.

To find out, go to Safe Mode and Disable, NOT Remove, everything under "Hard Disk Controllers" using Device Manager.

Then try Normal Mode again.

In addition your Hard Drive is bigger than 137GB. If you are using anything in the upper 23GB, you will need another Patch. Otherwise you could crash and/or corrupt your Hard Drive.
