man em for Intel Gigabit adapters:
"The em driver provides support for PCI gigabit Ethernet adapters based on
the Intel 82540, 82542, 82543, 82544 and 82546 Ethernet controller chips."
I believe there is Serial ATA support for some chipsets in 5.1. No idea on
the Fasttrack 378.

Problems are likely to occur when your kernel doesn't  match your userland.
I'm guessing your initial install was 4.5, and you updated directly to 4.8?
I would recommend that you try to boot with a 4.8 GENERIC kernel, off a 4.8
CD or floppy. Then try mounting your partitions manually from single user
mode, and editing /etc/fstab to match your drive configuration.
