Well I've pretty much got the issue tracked down to something with the motherboard a processor, restoring my ghosted image did not resolve the issue, it was not as bad in safe mode as it was in normal mode, but it started doing the hang thing right away. The Kubuntu Live CD came up fine with no problems. I picked up a PCI SATA Card and am going to move the guts of the machine into the other case, hopefully tomorrow after work. Then I'll get to re-install windows. . . yay, on the up side, I get to add the SCSI Card back in, and hopefully be able to use the ESI-32 Sampler more. . . just need a SCSI-1 to SCSI-2 connetor to daisy chain the Sampler and SCSI CD Rom to the machine. . .
