Recovery Media to Advance Format Drive creates unusable system
Should this be posted in Installation & Setup or Performance & Maintenance?
Hard drive in 2009 Satellite P500 series notebook, Windows 7 Home Premium X64, is pre-Advanced Format Drive.
Download an install a stand-alone fix does not work either.And it now reports "NOT GENUINE"
Also I discovered a lot of repetitive errors in Event Log, one of which is Cryptographic Services failed, error 583.
Another on Windows Search Service, 0c2004117f
Both those errors mention "database error"
Swapped hard drive back, and all is well, but now Windows update installed Service Pack 1.
Imaged drive, and restored to new AFD drive, and Windows Updates till not work. Same error reported.
I think I need to start a separate thread? ...regarding Advance Format Drives. Clearly there is a problem bigger than me and my searching for fixes.
Meanwhile... how do I solve my problem. The restores only works on the old drive?
