I replaced all the cables and the hard disk however I get the same Error (money wasted).
When you start the PC and get "PIO MODE" in Computer/Manage/Device Manager/IDE ADA ATAPI Controllers/ATA Chanel X/Properties/Advanced Settings is the cause your PC is freezed.
My "temporal" solution for this problem is:
1-Shut down the PC.
2-Pick Up and Put the Hard Disk cable in the same port of the motherboard
3-Start the PC and review in the Advanced Settings box -> "Ultra DMA Mode 6"; at this moment you can work without problems.
* If you can exchange your motherboard (while under warranty) DO IT!
-.- We all will be WAITING that Microsoft get a solution to force the start up from "PIO MODE" to "ULTRA DMA 6"
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
