Question about Toshiba Satellite A305-S6872 Notebook PC
After I did re installed vista the windows update wont work I get a Error 8024A000 I have tried everything on forums and when I open IE it gives me a abort message say needs to be updated to IE 9 but I cannot do that with the Windows update not working. I tried all the cmd the forums advised, I tryed to install the SP2 but it will not let me do that. I tried the Fix it under Microsoft and it aborts something about the powershell. If anyone cant please help about the code 8024A000. Thank You
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.

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.

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.
