So I went ahead and and started the process. Did step one fine, but I'm having trouble with the second step with HDAT2. I changed it to IDE like it asked me to and retried it, but it comes up the screen attached below.

This is with the latest HDAT2 version.
Any help would be greatly appreciated it's probably something simple I overlooked.

Ok, so I ended up movind the SSD to another computer and i was able to finish it up and get TRIM enabled. My speeds after the intel toolbox isn't as good as some of the ones posted in this thread, but I'm happy with the results. Thanks for this great guide and for picking up after kingston's "promised" patch.

Odd issue but I think I had that issue and I typed HDAT2 and hit ENTER and it booted up, well last time I checked but at least you got it sorted and I am glad this guide was of use

Hello all,

Having trouble with part 1 method 3. Tried on a Biostar A770 as well as an old Asrock 865 (pentium 4) board. Gives me the pre-production firmware error. Didn't even look like it found it on the 770, and on the 965, it just had a bunch of xxxx's.

Anyone know if it will work on a P5Q Pro or a Gigabyte 965P-DS3?

It could be the motherboards you are using. I am not 100% sure if it will work on the motherboards you have suggested so I would not want to mis-inform you. Someone likely knows.

well, i managed to flash to latest fw on a gigabyte. Failed on my P5Q Pro. However, when doing the restore with hdat2, it seemed to not work. no error msg was given, but i did it twice still. When i booted into windows (off a mechanical drive) it reported trim was still non-functional on the kingston. Tried to do it on the P5Q Pro, but hdat2 couldn't load the cdrom drivers.

At least i do have the 02HD fw on it now. Guess i gotta find a PC on which hdat2 works now... hopefully the Biostar will work for that.

For those having issues there is a new version of Hdat2 out now : http://www.hdat2.com/

If you are using the newer version and still having issues I can only reccomend trying other versions or another Motherboard/Rom drive.

Got it to work. Had to remote the HPA settings, then restore DCO and it works. Can confirm that the gigabyte 965P-DS3 with a SATA DVD drive works for both procedures. Asus P5Q Pro with PATA drives does not. Biostar A770E Only works for HDAT2. If i had disconnected to other drive, the biostar may have worked for flashing fw as well. Used HDAT2 version 4.8.1 Boot CD.

Thanks to everyone on this thread who posted issues, fix's, and advice, and thanks to OP and Telnet

After successfully followed all the steps and get windows 7 to see my SSDnow 40gb to support TRIM, I found out the bloody drive (bought from buy.com) is iaStor controller instead of meahci controller.

I already confirmed my drive as TRIM supported with DOS: ''fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify'' returns 0.

However, the speed is pretty bad vs the SSDnow with meahci controller (based on the picture from Hotdog Storm quote)

Is there a way to switch from iaStor controller to meahci controller?
