It's becoming difficult to track your problem. You may want to file a
separate bug report at <>, and attach the
"dmesg", "lspci -vvn" and "lshw" output to it when running the feisty

For the Gutsy boot messages, you can boot into single-user mode,
and take a screenshot of the failure messages using a digital camera,
and then attach it to the bug report as well. Do it twice with and
without preloading ide drivers in initramfs.
