How to get your Kingston 40GB SSD to support TRIM - Page 20

post #191 of 285
Nice. Thank you very much of you Telnet. I'll spread the word to french boards so then can try by their own. I'll do what you said and take my chance with RMA.

I think it should be great Entreprise if you added this quote in the first post for people needing this trick like me.

Thanks to both of you.

Have a problem with flashing a standard Intel drive, and Intel itself is not really helpful for the moment.

It is detailed here: http://communities.intel.com/message/91793#91793

While trying to find a solution I stumbled upon this thread, found it a very interesting read.

To fix my problem the firmware updater should not check the version of the current firmware and just proceed with flashing. I reckon it is similar to removing the checks telnet did for the "Kingston" updater and what he detailed less than a day ago in a post. Is there any chance I could get such an updater? If it is as easy as changing a byte with a hex editor like for the toolbox, I'd be happy to do it.

I read your post in the Intel site. I believe your drive is ok, as the firmware images are embedded in the firmware loader, so if you were able to run the loader, you already had the correct firmware image in the computer memory. The problem probably does not relate to the firmware flashing itself.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm not sure the drive will show problems, I was too chicken to test it to be honest, preferring an uninterrupted flash procedure to take place first.

The reason I'm a bit wary is that it didn't get to the point where the "updating.." messages appear. According to your own post here it's not that important but yeah it was interrupted before.

I guess I'll just try it, hope the firmware isn't corrupted and wreaks havoc

Kingston SAV exchanged my 40Gb SSD with a G2 64Gb (425-S2BD/64GB).
(I didn't say that I flashed it)

I used this tutorial and the other one on how to get the ssdtoolbox working and it worked 100%. Yay! Thanks. (had to use the ahci-version of HDAT2 + ahci-setting in bios though, normal HDAT2 + ide-setting would just hang)

PS: bought the 40gb ssd second hand for 65 euros. Not too bad imo

I am glad the guide helped. Yeah 65 Euro's is not bad at all.
