[Debug Procedure]

After a lot of

  • Return to "Restore Point"
    • Review the detail list
  • Windows update with removing my ethernet cable
    • Review the history
  • Stress Test


Finally, I find out the root cause:

  • Intel Corporation (HDC) -     (oem48.inf)



In Device Manager,

    I find out info about oem48.inf   in    the event list of "Intel(R) 300 series SATA AHCI Controller"  in   "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller"

And then I rollback the driver to the previous version: "Standard SATA AHCI Controller" provided by Microsoft.


The issue is resolved now.

My laptop can run well without BSOD for more than 8 hours now.

Hello @archilis

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


We understand that you experienced some Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) errors after receiving updates and drivers through the Windows® Update Service but you managed to solve the problem and the system is now running well. We are glad to know that you found a solution and we thank you for taking the time to share this feedback, hopefully, this may help other community peers experiencing similar behavior.


It is worth mentioning that Intel® doesn't have control over the different drivers and updates offered and pushed through the Windows® Update service and what we usually recommend is to verify and use the customized drivers provided by the Computer Manufacturers (OEM). Also, we don't have reports from more customers reporting these kinds of problems with this driver version ( since it is an OEM driver as per the Lenovo* website (Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) Driver Version In the case that the issue happens again with this driver, our recommendation is to verify with your OEM Lenovo* for the latest drivers and support.


Thank you once again for your feedback. If you need any additional information, please submit a new question as this thread will no longer be monitored.


Best regards,

Andrew G.
