That would be the only thing I could think of. Strange.

I wrote to developer of this software and he will try to fix this problem.
Have you got a PC you can attach the SSD to for flashing ?

Using a Gigabyte EG45M-DS2H I ran into the exact same problems as Nano2K. Additionally, I needed to use the hdat /d=10 command to skip the 1Int13h check and get to the hdat console. After completing the update I was also able to hexedit Intel's ssd toolbox for full functionality as well. Thanks for the excellent work everyone has put into this and for sharing it with others! The Kingston isn't as nice as my Intel 160gb but it isn't far behind now!

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^^

Enterprise + Telnet,

Thanks for the guide and your hardwork. You're the man!!!

I have a gigabyte board (790x-ud4p) and the same issue arise (stuck on Scanning Int13h devices) however, I just took a few seconds and plugged the drive into my laptop and it worked without a hitch.

Now trim is supported with intel Toolbox software. I'm happy as a clam and again thank you so much for your time...very much appreciated.

Perhaps you could try some Linux LiveCD and use hdparm to restore DCO.

Thanks !!! It worked for me

All you have to do is to:

- download CentOS 5.2 Live CD ISO
- burn the ISO with ImgBurn
- bootup your Mac from CD called "Windows" (keep pressing Alt on startup)
- open Linux console
- type: sudo su
- install some needed programs with yum -y install gcc make
- download newest edition of hdparm with: wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/hdpa...ar.gz/download
- unpack files: tar -xzvf hdparm*
- go to hdparm directory cd hdparm*
- type: make
- then type: make install
- type: /sbin/hdparm --yes-i-know-what-i-am-doing --dco-restore /dev/sda (if your SSD is a 1st drive, if second sdb, if 3rd sdc, if 4th sdd etc.)
- if you see message:

/dev/sda:
issuing DCO restore command

then it's OK

- type: reboot

Hello,

Many thanks for this great guide! I have just finished upgrading the firmware on my new Kingston SDD.

During the guide i have encountered a problem, and i did a search on your forum and found nothing about it.

PROBLEM:
After launching utility, i got an error related about STACKS and config.sys, just when the utility was about to detect my drive. (you can search google for "an internal stack overflow has caused" to read more about this problem)

SOLVE:
I downloaded the modded utility attached to the thread, i created a bootable USB drive using Windows98 sources that i found on the internet, guided by the same site you recommended (i copied the config.sys file manually on the disk - in this config.sys i had a "stacks = 9000" or so line). Finally i copied the flash utility, booted, and everything worked out fine!

Hope this helps, and that you did not already talk about this problem!

I finally got around to doing this. I was a little worried since my C: is an actual Intel 80gb X-25 G2 SSD that the hacked updater might get confused but everything worked fine.

Now my GAME SSD is rocking TRIM as well!


Good job guys.

Hello,

I got a huge problem and hope you can help.

After changing the HPA size in HDAT2 V453 to make the restore work on my Gigabyte X48-DQ6 my Kingston is now recognized with just 5.67GB. I tried to set back the original 40GB setting and also to "restore" but I always get an aborted message.

The SSD is still working normal but just has 5,67GB. Would be great if you could me tell how I can reset my drive to get back the full capacity.

EDIT

I was able to restore and change the HPA settings of my Kingston on my sisters computer which has an ASUS mobo inside. HDAT2 doesn´t seem to work proper on Gigabyte boards.

Thanks, great job guys.
