    Hi guys! I'm having issues with InsydeH20 from the Toshiba website.

    This laptop has never had the BIOS updated before and Windows 7 was working. I was having troubles with the audio working on Windows 7 so I thought I would try updating the BIOS while I was installing new drivers. I used ACPI Flash BIOS version 2.10 for Satellite A305 (PSAG8U) from 1.60.

    After installation, it rebooted, posted and after the Win 7 splash screen finished loading (which took a long time) it goes straight to a BSOD and immediately reboots. After doing some research a couple guys on the mod part of the forum in somebody else's thread suggested changing UEFI to compatibility mode in the BIOS / use safe mode, both which still result in another BSOD.

    I also tried reinstalling a fresh copy of the OS to no avail.

    After trying for a few hours I gave up and decided to try rolling back the BIOS. I was successful to rollback to 1.60 using this BIOS ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.60 for Satellite A305 (PSAGCU/PSAG8U) however it still uses the InsydeH20 uefi and I still get the windows splash screen followed by the BSOD.

    If there is anything I can provide please let me know and I will supply it. Thanks in advanced for your help, guys!

    The BIOS shows the SATA controller mode is AHCI. I don't believe the error code shown in the link you provided is the same one being outputted during BSOD however it's too quick to tell because of the almost insta-reboot.

    I am unable to check my registry settings because I can't get into safe mode.

    There is no IDE choice. Only AHCI and Compatibility.

    Yes - like I said in my OP I tried compatibility to no avail. It actually BSODs almost immediately when the splash screen appears. When I use AHCI the splash screen takes a long time to load and then it BSODs.

    Hmm... then something else :g:

    Actually ahci related problems are the most common issues after bios upgrade :)

    I'd be perfectly happy with my original BIOS **slaps himself for not backing up**

    I can't find the original, only the insydeH20 version. I think it was phoenix but I'm not sure! The little insydeH20 logo was never there before on boot, either. So it makes me assume it wasn't using insydeH20 originally.
