For the x25m Intel recommends flashing in IDE mode, I'm guessing its gonna be the same for these drives.

Hi I'm new here^^

I went through the procedure, flashed ok, but I had issues with Hdat2.
It would get stuck on Scanning Int13h devices and I wasn't able to get past that on my Gigabyte UD3R. So I connected my SSD on my older P5B Deluxe system and it worked.

I had another issue though, once in Hdat2, I could not restore DCO, it kept giving me an error. Finally I figured out (there was some message about it on the screen) there was something wrong with the MAX HPA setting.
So I had to go in the SET MAX HPA menu and delete the current setting. Then I went went back to restore the DCO and it worked.

Just a heads up since I didn't read about this in the guide, maybe I had a funny issue or whatever...

Thanks to those who made this possible^^

Glad to see the the ISO image is working for others too.

I have to say I did not come across those other issues within HDAT2. If it becomes really apparent with the others I will add it to the guide.

Oh and welcome to Overclock.Net

Thank you so much for posting this guide. I'm just about to try it.

I'm still fuming at Intel!!!

Any time. I am glad it helps. Let me know if you need a hand with anything.

Sadly it seems Intel have the last laugh - issdfut.exe doesn't detect my SSD (yes, I did change SATA to IDE in BIOS).

Maybe I should try to restore DCO and see if that enables TRIM even with the old firmware?

Hmm. I am not sure why it would not detect the SSD. Does it simply state there are no Intel SSD's or does it hang so to speak ?

You could try DCO with the current firmware and see. I cannot promise that will actually work though.

It says there are no Intel SSDs. I used Method 3. I assume I was supposed to just burn the iso and not replace the issdfut.exe on it? I was a bit confused.

Yeah. Method 3 you simply burn the ISO.

Hmm the fact it is not picking up any SSD's says to me something is not right. It worked with me and others. However as you say, you are using IDE mode.

I am a little stumped. All I could recommend is using a different method and seeing if you have any better luck ?
