Windows 7: BSOD, plus odd Windows error

OK. Create a restore point and make sure you have the installation disk or the repair disk. Go back to the properties, driver tab and instead of roll back driver, select uninstall driver. You will have to reboot, then on start up it will say installing drivers, then require another restart. restart and go back to IDE ATA/ATAPI and see what driver you have. I just tried it 3 times on my machine, and it kept installing the same driver on restart. But, I haven't uninstalled IRST.

Okay, I'll try that.

Also, here is that last dump file.

Mezzy, are you sure you're not sending me the exact same dump file?

Sorry, I think I am. Doh! There is one from this morning and one from tonight. I thought they were both from tonight. I guess the second one didn't create a dump file?

Anyway, I did what you said and uninstalled the driver and rebooted. It installed the driver and I rebooted again. Unfortunately it's the same driver, our friend iaStor.sys. One question, when I clicked uninstall, it had a box to check if you wanted to "delete the driver software for this device". I wasn't sure what to do so I didn't check it. When it was installing after the first reboot it looked like it was downloading it anyway, from Windows update.

If you have made the Restore Point, uninstall the driver software, check the box. and try that. You should have MSAHCI if you installed in AHCI mode. Windows Installer installs that. When you install IRST, it changes the AHCI driver from MSAHCI to IaStor. So you should have MSAHCI in your Drivers. So, if you installed in AHCI mode, if you uninstall iaStor it should revert to MSAHCI.

I hope I explained that correctly. As I recall, you were in Raid mode, but I don't recall if you did a reinstall in AHCI mode. If you didn't, navigate to C:/Windows/System32/Drivers and search from the top right search box for MSAHCI.

Well I checked the box and uninstalled it and it installed iaStor again. However, I found that if I choose "Update Driver"--->Browse my computer--->Pick from a List, that I can choose the Microsoft version (I think that's what it is).

Attachment 327447

What's also interesting is that when I went in here before I did the uninstall, there were three different versions of iaStor and now there is only one.

So should I do this and pick the Standard controller?

Yes, try that. It should show MSAHCI as the driver.

No Problem. It should do fine as long as there are AHCI drivers in the OS. However, it is always a good idea to back up your personal files before doing such things. It really should be no problem, but you can never be sure. Also, make sure you have a restore point made, just in case. I was wondering what happened last night. When I didn't hear from you, I was worried that something may have gone wrong. I'm happy you wrote this morning. Thanks!
