i sucsesfully update kingston 40gb on Asrock H55 board - and it worked on this board ok but on Gigabyte X58-UD5 on same SSD computer freezes on AHCI device detection (Kingston with old firmware not freeze on this board ) in IDE mode on this board work ok

I had to disconnect the Western Digital disk drive on my system, and due to the 'frozen security' type issues I was having I left the SSD drive unconnected and booted to DOS. I reconnected it (in case it is relevent I used SATA 5 on my motherboard since SATA 0/1 may cause problems from what I have read), and ran HDAT2. HDAT2 did finally see the drive, but would not let me restore the settings (I did'nt note the warning but it mentioned HPA) until I selected the next menu option (Hidden Areas Test) and temporarily disabled HPA (from memory - I think that is what it is called). Tried the restore in the DCO menu again and it worked !

I then went back to the Intel Toolbox and it now allows me to run/use Optimizer as if it is an Intel drive - a very big thank you to you and Telnet for your help and this guide.

Thanks very much for letting me know the outcome and how you managed to get it working. I will add your reply to the Guide so it helps others that may face the same issue as you have

I am glad to see you got it sorted

This hint is twice as funny if you consider that my drive is using a samsung controller. On the other hand I'm very disappointed about this kind of product maintanance especially if you consider that Kingston gave other statements about future firmware releases (according to some reviews I found). Instead of maintaining a product, Kingston has now released a "new" V+ series wich is now supporting TRIM. Maybe it's the same hardware so some geeks may be able to extract the firmware....

Sorry for my english^^

Cheers

Wow. Looks like it spread further than I thought. Well done Telnet. I am glad to see that the work is being appreciated and used to help others

Yes the V+ Series comes with TRIM support. Whether or not the Flash chips used and controller is the same or not is any ones guess until its looked into. If they are then there is potential to modify a firmware for it I should think. Thanks for your input.

Hello and welcome to OCN.

Yes it really does seem that it really depends on the chipset you own to how you go about performing the flash. Its a pity Intel did not account for that as well as I thought they would have. However due to the massive range of chipsets and SATA controllers out there it is hard. Sometimes its not going to be as straight forward as you think. However with the above replies I think everyone should be able to find away to flash there drive if they cannot do it in the first instance.

Hi Jan

Thanks for your email,

I am afraid we will not be releasing any update for this drive

However, you might get what you want from the following link

(Note that we do not support wha's explain on this link)


Regards
That's hilarious!!!!

Interesting. I have a Gigabyte mobo too which may be the cause of the problem I have.

I am wary of unplugging hard drives and disabling RAID on my Intel SATA controllers though, as I'm worried it won't remember the RAID 0 settings and I'll have to reconfigure it and erase the drives. It's the first time I've used RAID so I'm a bit of a noob on that front. Perhaps someone can let me know if my worries are justified.

Yeah I'm looking forward to the first review of these "revised" V+ series. The read/write performance is very close to the previous V+ so I guess the chance is high that it's still the same controller.

I was always happy with my kingston stuff but TBH I only bought their RAM modules so far and there's not really a need for firmware updates

As long as you don't intentionally destroy the raid you can unplugg, switch from IDE/AHCI and your raid will still be intact. You could even take your raid and swap it onto another motherboard with the same intel controller and it will recognize your raid.

The RAID array should be fine if you unplug the RAID HDD's and switch over to normal SATA operation.

Once finished simply put the RAID Hdd's back in just like they were ( SAME SATA PORT ) Etc and re-enable RAID in the BIOS and you should be good to go. Last time did this my RAID array was fine.

Thanks for the reassurance, guys

I assume the RAID config data must reside on the hard drives then.

I shall try it with just the SSD.

Intel won't get the better of me

Yes the RAID config is on the HDD's and use the Controller as the host. Of course the controller config needs to be correct for the RAID array to run again.
