Can you back out of this update? Using the Restore function in Windows, at Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore and choose a date prior to the date you installed the bad update.

Hi,

Please remove all updates from beginning and then re-install these updates.

Also re-boot the system from OS-disk.
You will surely get rid of this problem.

With Regards,
Ankit

Your question is not understandable, If your hard disk has crashed, only professional data recovery services may help you out.

I would try backing up any data you need to a PC it works with and then try formatting it with a full format not a quick format then try plugging it into a computer which it normally crashes with while it is still blank. If that is working copy your data back and see what happens. ...cheers from Scott

Windows update error 8024A000 after replacing crashed hard drive with 500 GB


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.
