Does the writing Error appear before the Desktop appears, shortly after, a while later, or do you have to do something to make it happen?

Before Desktop appears, but not immediately after windows boot logo i would say that it is in the second part of loading. I will check bootlog.

Update bootlog is quite long, hangs on Sata driver:

[000CFC0F] DEVICEINITSUCCESS   = SPOOLER 
[000CFC0F] DEVICEINIT   = UDF     
[000CFC0F] DEVICEINITSUCCESS   = UDF     
[000CFC0F] DEVICEINIT   = VFAT    
[000CFC0F] DEVICEINITSUCCESS   = VFAT    
[000CFC0F] DEVICEINIT   = VDEF    
[000CFC0F] DEVICEINITSUCCESS   = VDEF    
[000CFC0F] Initing vclone.mpd
[000CFC09] Init Success vclone.mpd
[000CFC09] Initing esdi_506.pdr

Another unexpected Driver. What is VCLONE.MPD?

Try removing/renaming it and ignoring any missing File Warnings.

Standard GPT disks would be ignored by Windows 9x. Hybrid or my Mixed GPT and MBR disks may not.

   You are right, i even disconnected GPT disc its same, so patch is simply dont like my Asmedia controller.
  BTW im already in contact with Asrock Bios/uefi team, they were nice enough to implement, per Sata port enable / disable for this board and trying to add hotplug for Asmedia port.. I had some other issues with this board in other OS - in Windows 7 is HDD on Asmedia port marked as removable SCSI device and when i start HWinfo - disc is disconnected to cold powerdown and when i run R-Drive image and scan list of partition i got machine freeze, it could be only Asmedia driver issues..

   But i want to say, if you see some way how they should adjust PCI devs settings (scanpci result), write it here or sent it to me by mail, i will try to ask, they are quite open to fixing, its right opposite of my MSI / GB experience with UEFI issues fixing.

No PCI changes.

It sounds like there are some BIOS and/or Hardware issues with the Asmedia Controller. Hopefully they can fix it.
