I think you should back up and start from scratch: restore all the
original settings.

Was this with the card inserted, or not inserted?  Start with no
special settings and see if the system will boot.  If it does, then
insert the card.  If it does not boot, then try "do_scan=0"; do not
use the Windows interrupt settings: they are *wrong* for Linux.

You mis-spelled "irq_list" as "irq-LIST".

Do not set the memory window to this.  Put the original settings back.
