Good that the gameport and parport works.

Yes, you need to add ACPI IRQ routing for 0x7 and 0x8

I think it is FILO problem. Please test the devices in Linux first.
SATA is in "legacy" mode, so each SATA port has 2 master/slave devices.

SATA1 - hd0 (hd1 shadow)
SATA2 - hd2  (hd3 shadow)
IDE0  - hd4 master
IDE0 - hd5 slave
IDE1 - hd6 master
IDE1 - hd7 slave
