Is it failing when it tries to mount the disk during the bootup process?

Also, we saw another laptop with this issue on 8.0. In the BIOS they had to switch a setting for SATA / IDE from "enhanced" to "standard" to make it work. Do you have anything similar in your BIOS?

Closing due to lack of feedback. Please retest with 8.1 and reopen if problem persists.
