Hi ZMaster, how did you managed to solve this problem? because im in the same situation here with my Kubuntu 8.04, installed on AHCI, and worked fine, but I switched again to IDE to work with WinXP and then Kubuntu wont load (only stays on splash screen (haven't looked at boot without the slpash so i dont know where it pauses, i will update the post as soon as I can).
Did you have an IDE after installing in AHCI?
I Have an Asus P5Q (Intel p45 chipset) with a Intel Q6600 and 2GB RAM a 320 GB Western Digital HDD and two DVD-RW (one is SATA and the one that let me install kubuntu is pATA).
Well i think thats more or less what is happening on my system, i think is similar to your issue.
Excuse me for my language, english is not my native language
EDIT: Here is my GRUB List, I Installed Ext2 FS Installer to read my Linux partition on Win and of course, the default option to boot is the fifth (counting form zero it will be number 4) WinXP (I also have Vista)

Ok and here's where it stops loading:

Loading please wait...
And thats all... just at the begining, i will search about that BUG, but I hope you could reply with your solution.
Thanks in advance
