Linux dying at partition check at boot


I have one heck of a problem on my hands. I have installed Redhat many times but have never had this problem before.

I installed Redhat 8.0 and the install stopped at partition check: hda. I entered the line before booting into the install ide=nodma. Then I was able to install. After the install was finished. The boot up is still dying on partition check:hda again.

I'm clueless. Need some help.
