Yesterday, after putting the PC on I was able to go to windows without
any problem, however I got a message that New Hardware Found - Find
and Install Drivers. I noticed that It was referring to the SCSI
Then after a while I had to restart and from then onwards I could not
continue to windows. The following screen comes up:
