Me too have the same problem (still), I mean with 7.10 I could use Ubuntu. approx. 1/7 tries (or something like that) succeeded and Ubuntu was booting up. After 8.04 update I can't reach my Linux anymore. During boot I press ALT+F1 to get the console and this is what I get:

-- a clip from a console (manually written, can contain typos)--
Loading, please wait
[102.256034] ata 7.00 revalidation failed (errno=-5)
[137.378078] ata 7.00 revalidation failed (errno=-5)

Check root=bootarg cat /proc/cmdline or missing modules, devices:
cat /proc/modules ls / dev
-- clip ends

Windows works yes, I'm very disappointed to the Ubuntu. :( In my case the 7.10 boot up functionality was bad now its totally dead!

For the record, my HW is the following:

Mobo: Abit B9 Intel 965 LGA775 ATX (Having the JMicron SATA controller)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400, 2.13 GHz, Socket 775, FSB 1066, 2MB Cache
