Try updating your hard disk drive driver see:

Vista Windows Update Error 8024A000

Here's the solution. I had to replace a failed hard drive in a Vista laptop. The original drive was a 200GB and I replaced it with a 500GB. I used my original Toshiba restoration CDs. I've spent HOURS troubleshooting this problem and I never would have guessed the solution -- it's the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver. It has to be updated because of the larger drive.
Here's a link to an HP support site for the updated driver. You can also find the update on Intel's site.

I would start again with a clean install of your OS. Download SP2 from Microsoft to a disc and you should be sorted.

SOURCE: I.E. Cannot Display the Webpage. Due to Microsoft Update?

don't do any microsoft updates, just make sure your running the latest virus programs with the latest version virus definitions and dont' go to sites you shouldn't be going to and you'll never run into a problem. Microsoft updates are supposed to protect your computer from hackers but using a good virus program and using a different browser such as firefox or opera and you'll be good.

SOURCE: I was using windows vista on Toshiba Laptop. I got

Please note before I continue on that XP can not always be placed onto a system that had Vista as some drivers and hardware will refuse to work.

You may be having an issue w/ the boot manager.

I would suggest running the windows xp recovery console this will give you a dos like screen. Once there you can do a lot w/ the system I would suggest trying to rebuild the bootmanager.

If none of this works. You should try a full not a quick format off the install screens or you can run a win98 boot disk and access the partition and format commands.

Please post your findings in as great of detail as possible.

I believe at this time the bootmanager may be confused as to if its dealing w/ visita or if its dealing w/ xp. The boot manager uses a part of the harddrive outside of normal storage to control parts of the OS loading procedures.

Thanks

Did you do ALL your windows update before the Service Pack? That SP has been out for years? Doesn't your laptop have Windows Updates set to Auto? Choose one or the other, Vista or Win 7 and do a Full Install.

I will recommend that you download and run the free Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. It helps find issues with your computer’s hardware, devices that might affect installing Windows 7. Go to the Windows 7 Compatibility Center find direct links to drivers, updates, and downloads.

Windows Vista


hi there
There is 2 ways to do this, firstly you can create a floppy disk with the updated bios flash file on ( not recommended to a novice ) or reinstall XP and updated the bios by downloading it from the manufacturers website and installing it that way. After that you can install Vista.

good luck

it may not be due to the windows installer, all drivers for vista 64 bit must be approved and signed by microsoft or they will not install, this is not true for windows vista 32 bit however.

Cannot get out of Configurating updates: stage 3 of 3 screen


This is all I could find:


It's not only Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that isn't ready for general consumer availability. Some of the updates released on February 12, 2008, as a part of the Microsoft monthly patch cycle, have managed to effectively kill Windows Vista. Users are reporting that, following the introduction of the February 12 updates, Vista gets stuck at the finalization of the deployment of the updates displaying the message "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% completes" and then entering
an infinite reboot loop. And there is absolutely no way out for the end users, because canceling the configuration process of the updates is a move equivalent to losing access to the operating system entirely. This will even happen in Safe Mode.

Microsoft has yet to officially respond to the issue, or to provide a resolve or at least a workaround. However, it does seem at this point that there is an issue with the deployment of the pre-requisite updates necessary for the smooth installation of Windows Vista SP1. Namely, the problem resides in the Vista installation software. The fact of the matter is that end users will have to first update the Vista installation software and only then deploy the remaining February 12 updates and only at the end Vista SP1 RTM.

If you are stuck watching the "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer" and in the endless reboot loop, then stop the cycle and boot from the Vista media. You will need to "Repair your computer," so select your Vista installation and restore it to a point before the deployment of the updates. After gaining back access to your operating system, you will have to install the service stack update, namely Update for Windows Vista (KB937287). Deploy this update before any other on your Vista, and only then install the rest. At this point in time, you should experience no more problems.

"Update 937287 is a prerequisite package that contains updates to the Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates, language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs. Update 937287 is necessary to successfully install and to remove Windows Vista SP1 on all versions of Windows Vista," Microsoft revealed.
