Failure within netinst: ide-disk and ide-generic are hanging each other

I am trying to run the Debian netinst with my new ASUS motherboard and AMD.
The installation process is stuck when I run
 modprobe ide-generic
 modprobe ide-disk
The same for oposite.
The command "cat kmsg" is claiming about "DMA timeout".
( I may misspell the error message since I can`t use a disk to store things )

Unfortunately the ide-disks are the only disks that I have.
Therefore this E-Mail I am writing from WindowsXP.
