try this: go to device manager and uninstall primary and secondary IDE channel. just that nothink else. than reboot your comp.

and do not forget do the system restore point so you can always roll back if any probs

than there is another option :

BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY FIRST!!!
Click Start > Click Run Type in "regedit" (without qoutes)

Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Highlight the "upperFilters" and "LowerFilters" if any and go to edit-delete.

I also did this same in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet003\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

It seems like you have to delete de upperfilters and lowerfilters keys in all of the CurrentControlSet00X branches.

Don't forget to reboot.
