[17180032.820000] hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error

[17180032.820000] hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError },

[17180032.820000] ide: failed opcode was: unknown[17180032.820000]
end_request: I/O error, dev hda, sector 23677863

[17180032.820000] Buffer I/O error on device hda1, logical block 2959725

[17180032.824000] EXT3-fs error (device hda1): ext3_readdir: directory
#1470023 contains a hole at offset 0

This looks vaguely familiar. i once got something similar to this, only i
was getting FAR too many DriveReady SeekComplete Error's and Uncorrectable
Errors. It was pretty irritating, anyway what was even more irritating was
that it was happening due to a loose IDE cable ;-) However i cannot say for
sure if that's true in your case as well.

i just took the cable out and re-connected properly(while the machine was
off) and it started booting just fine.
