For your info, this is not just a Toshiba issue. I changed my hard drive into a 750GB Western Digital WD7500BPKT Scorpio Black 2.5" Hard Drive - HDDin my Gateway and I had the same problem that was also solved by the Intel fix.
It also would bring a error message saying that "This computer is not running genuine Windows".
I tried several error message searches and this solution was really by chance in a last tentative!
Thanks for adding to our thread. Yes, I first ran across the problem restoring a Dell machine.
BTW, you can still get a 500 GB Scorpio Black (WD5000BEKT) that does not have advanced format.

I am absolutely beyond frustrated right now with my A135-S4677. I have taken out my original drive that failed and replaced it with a Western Digital HD. After replacing the harddrive, I attempted to utilize the discs provided by Toshiba to reload Vista with absolutely zero success. I have tried loading to out of box state and every other option provided. What am I missing here?
I have been combing the forum for over a week trying to find a solution.
I understand that upgrading to a newer harddrive will have some issues, but perhaps I am doing something out of sequence? I realize it's not as simple as putting the new drive in, booting from the disc drive and boom. I have downloaded the intel fix, the hotfix, etc, but I feel like I am missing a step. In all honesty, I'm unclear as to where these are loaded in the foodchain of this fix. Can someone please direct me?
I have not changed anything in the bios set up. I have absolutely hit the wall on this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We cannot see either what you're doing or what happens when you do it.
We know absolutely nothing at this point.
You didn't even give us the model number of the WD drive.
The procedure is described in the section Hard Disk Recovery using the Recovery media on p. 63 of the User's Guide.

Yep, that was a pretty vague post. My apologies.
The new drive is a Western Digital WD Scorpio blue SATA

The new drive is a Western Digital WD Scorpio blue SATA Model: WDBABC3200ANC-NRSN
I don't see anything about advanced format in the attachment.
I'm guessing you have some other hardware issue.

The drive does have the advanced format. clearly printed on the packaging that it came in..
Thanks for letting us know about that. Sometimes viewing the drive is the best way.
I can tell you for sure that this WD drive does not have it.
WD3200BEKT - WD Scorpio Black
Maybe you can swap?

i know that it has been a little while since this was posted but you said that you used the recovery set. i created a recovery set using the recovery creator by toshiba and recovered using the 3 discs (recover 1,2 and 3) when do i have to use the drivers disc or do i have to use it at all to complete the recovery?
thank you for your help

Very similar experience using Vista x64 SP1 media on L305-S59071.
No windows update, I did find that using an older 80gb drive allowed for clean install and also SP2 update, I was able to use WD Acronis to clone 80gb-320gb but then no windows update (where it was working previously). Am going to try the Intel RST driver and will advise. Just for the record, Failure last year, replaced with Samsung 500gb, it failed prior to 1yr old, installed new Toshiba 500gb SATA, Windows Update issues following install & SP2 gives Catistopic Failure as others indicated, went and bought 320gb drive (same spec as original, 5400K etc) same issues. Updating this later today after Intel RST update. Also noted similar failures during recovery to do with MS Windows Mail 7- MSOE.dll could not be initialized and also Program compatibility Asst. MS Tunnerl Interface driver...TUNM.sys, when I've seen these displayed during recovery it has problems.
Samsung 500gb drive info- S2HCJ1KB700522 failed under warranty and is being replaced by Seagate/Samsung
Toshiba 320gb drive info - WX81AA1Z1215

It usually does the job, Mark.
Google doesn't acknowledge that model.
We can still locate drives without AFT, BTW.

Happy to report that the Intel Chip Set and controller driver for RST corrected the issue, as a matter of fact it seems to run faster now. Incidently, half way through the SP2 install I noticed Windows update was working and advising that 'Updates were available' so Thanks to all who've commented. Would be nice if Toshiba Service Station displayed the same information as the lead in to this Forum. As a heads up. I looked there, didn't see any advisories and was a few days and many re-installs later that I decided to check the Forum, glad I did. Laptop is working nicely.
Appreicate all the help. The Advanced Format drives seem to be prevelant now, and they're not really size dependant.
Jerry, 'OK to close the case for me'.... joking.

Good news, Mark!
Thanks for reporting back your success.

I am having multiple issues after installing a new Seagate hard drive and using the system restore disks I purchased to repair my mother's computer. Wireless not working, troubleshoot not working for any application, can not even fit the background image on the screen on the desktop. I found the same advice online regarding updating the intel driver but I can't seem to get that to work either. I downloaded but it never started running and I see no files with .exe extensions. Verrrrrrry Frustrated. I am just trying to be a good daughter and get her computer working again. Please help.
12-13-2012 12:13 PM
Which computer? There is a label on the bottom.
..the intel driver but I can't seem to get that to work either. I downloaded but it never started running and I see no files with .exe extensions.
I don't understand the question. What's iata_enu.exe?
12-26-2012 01:30 PM
I have a Toshiba U505.
I changed the HDD to a Toshiba MK6475GSX, and I have Windows 7 64 bit. I have the problem you are writing about. I reinstalled the OS with the Toshiba recovery cd's and I have around 10 drivers that say they need to be signed. I found a driver for the WIFI and installed it and it's the only thing I've fixed so far. I am having trouble installing the Intel Rapid Storage driver you have here, I am not sure how to do it; it says something about an F6 install and something about installing it after the OS is installed, I don't know if you can give me some pointers. I tried with the Windows update but I get the error 0xc800247 and I can't go any further.
I am not very good with computers, I appreciate any help I can get. Thank you
12-26-2012 01:44 PM
Always tell us which U505 you have when you post here, Robert. There is a label on the bottom.
I found a driver for the WIFI..
That's the wrong procedure. All the drivers that were initially planted when you restored are correct.
Follow the procedure in my initial message.
That F6 stuff is for a floppy drive. Use the iata_enu.exe file.
You don't need to download the file on that machine. It can be easily transferred from another computer via flash drive or CD.

Hi, sorry about that
the computer is a Satellite U505-SP2916R, the HDD I installed is a Toshiba MK6475GSX 640GB. The original was a Fujitsu with 320GB. The OS in Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits.
I used the recovery cd's to install the original factory image of the OS. After finishing the install I ran the file iata_cd.exe (My OS is not in English) found in the link from the initial message.
After this I installed the Windows update (Windows.1-KB982018-v3-x64), I got no errors.
I still have the code 52 for the drivers. I believe I read something about reinstalling them. How can I do this? Or is there something else I should do?
Thanks for your help.

I still have the code 52 for the drivers.
I would start over. Again restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media. Don't mess around in Device Manager. Immediately install the new storage driver, say from a flash drive.
Judging from the feedback we've had, that should fix things.
Be sure that Windows Update installs KB982018.

Thanks to all on this thread for the ideas.
Toshiba L500 PSLS6C-00F005 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I used Toshiba recovery disks to reinstall to a Western Digital "Blue" model WDBABC0010BNC-NRSN 1TB drive.
I encountered the driver signature errors on LPCfilter.sys, the wifi and Ethernet drivers and no Windows 7 update ability. I tried all the fixes detailed in this thread but nothing worked
Here is what worked for me:
During the recover process, each time a reboot was required the LPCfilter.sys would complain. I would hit enter, press F8, then select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement". At some point during the recovery process, when a reboot was required, the system began to boot into the Windows 7 Startup Repair. if I let the repair run then LPCfilter.sys was declared as corrupt. Whenever the startup repair popped up I held down the power button to shutoff the notebook. Pressed power again and hit F8, then select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement". Eventually the recovery completed.
Next in C:\windows\system32\drivers\ I renamed LPCfilter.sys to LPCfilter.sys.old, The system would reboot without the driver signature error after that.
On to the windows updates. To get it working I changed settings to "Never Check for Updates" then picked check for updates. Magically it began installing updates. Later I changed back to "Install Updates Automatically". It too worked.
After the Updates were complete:
In device manager I found exclamation marks on the ethernet controller and LPCfilter controller. I uninstalled each one, checking the delete driver software for this device option. For the ethernet controller I did a scan for hardware changes, different drivers were installed, exclamation mark gone. The LPCfilter controller was not redetected but no ill effects were seen in the notebook operation.
However, after a reboot, I noticed an Intel express LPC filter controller listed in device manager.
I hope this makes sense, there may be simpler means to the same end but this is how I got this L500 recovery working with the WD Blue Advanced Format Technology Hard Disk.
I think LPCfilter.sys could be renamed earlier in the process, If you grab the top of the Toshiba splash screen during the recovery, you can drag it down to see the desktop. You could then use explorer to navigate to the file and rename it. This could make the whole process proceed more quickly by removing the need to repeatedly select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement".
I hope this is of help to someone.
