Fixed by changing value of New Card Interface to LOCKED in BIOS (Security > I/O Interface Security).

Is this a bug with system, kernel or hardware?

Hard to tell, I never heard about this option and have absolutely no idea what it's supposed to mean. Googling discovered several Ubuntu-related reports about similar booting problems with ASUS notebooks which were solved by switching this option, however no explanations were supplied...
