Link with detailed description of this problem.

Short how to fix:

open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor\Parameters\Port[0-n]\
set LPM=0, LPMDSTATE=0, and DIPM = 0

if your registry doesn’t contain this key, you have to add them.

Add new key "Port0".
Add new "DWORD" value named "LPM" and value leave 0.
Add next two "DWORD" values named "LPMDSTATE" and "DIPM".

Another advise how to fix this error

This method is originally referred in MS Technet forum:

Also the issue may be the result of Aggressive Link State Power Management (ALPM) on the PCI-Express bus negotiating a lower power state for the link between the controller and disk when there is no activity. When ALPM works, disk requests are queued, the serial link revived, and the queued requests are sent to the relevant disk; this requires a disk that supports ALPM.

1.       Click Start button, choose Control Panel.
2.       Move to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options. Click Change plan setting in your current power plan.
3.       Click “Change advanced power settings”, move to PCI Express-> Link State Power Management, turn off the option.
