The so called "F6 Floppy" or "F6 Driver Diskette" is legacy terminology from the Windows XP days. At that time if you needed to install a driver of some kind, like a SATA driver, you had to use a floppy disk drive, and press the F6 key to initiate the process.

You can still load a SATA driver when installing Windows 7, but you sure don't need a floppy disk to do so, and it might not even work if you had a floppy drive and disk. Not many current boards have a floppy drive connection. Why they still use that terminology, I do not know.

The f6flpy-x64.zip file will unzip into six files that are simply copied to a USB flash drive, and are the basic Intel SATA AHCI or RAID driver. That will load during the Windows installation if you click on the Load Driver button when that option is available. The "x64" version is for 64bit Windows, and the "x86" version is for 32bit Windows.

Window 7 actually has a built in copy of these Intel drivers, but it is an older version, which is why some users choose to load a newer version when they install Windows.

Nice results for an 830.

I like the "0 K" offset, I've never seen that before, is that an initialized but not formatted drive?

Man that is great result,i think its AS-SSD Raid 0 2 x SSD world record.I see its not boot drive and your CPU is on 5.4ghz but still its great.
That is Intel 11.2 driver,right?
What strip size it is?
I got this with 5.0ghz ,strip size 64k and its boot drive 2 x 128gb,Intel RST 11.2

Yes great,tnx.If you ever change Intel RST it would be great to see comparison,but i suggest you to not go over 11.2,because there is nothing good for Raid there.

Hello,

I've Samsung 840 Pro 256GB.

After updating firmware to latest version (DXM05B0Q) in Windows with Samsung Magician software my drive is completely bricked.
It shows in "frozen state".

I've tried unfreezing booting with Parted Magic and the unfreeze option. It stills shows as frozen on Windows.

What can I do? Is there any way to do a downgrade to DXM04B0Q?

I'm desperate frown.gif

I think that you can unplug your SSD for a few seconds and then plug it back with the power on to unfreeze it. Don't cut the power off during this process. Leave the power on.

I've had it happen several times with my laptop and my 840 Pro. No harm was done.

When the Magician says that the SSD is frozen, it should give you a message on how to unfreeze it.

EDIT: Whenever I have had my SSD to freeze was when I was using the Magician Secure Erase. Then it gave a message on how to unfreeze it like I mentioned above.
