Awesome guide.

i registered just to say thanks, and let everyone know how my experience went...


the firmware update went without a hitch on a gigabyte ud3p.
hdat2 would not run properly. i had set sata mode to ide ectect, and expected it so i pulled out another box with an ECS board and did all the work in hdat2 on that pc. no errors and everything went perfect. no issues with anything smooth as silk.

i went and edited the intel toolbox as specified in the other thread, and ran it. it did create a noticeable speed increase on the parts of the disk that are currently empty so i know it worked.

thanks guys for all the hard work!

Maybe with the DOS method. CrystalDiskInfo doesn't though - not until DCO is restored.

I've been perusing Intel support forums and there is mention of TRIM only working with Microsoft SATA drivers and not Intel ones. Anyone know about this?

I am very pleased to see my guide was able to help and glad you got it working mate. I am sure Telnet is greatly pleased also. Yes HDAT and the Intel updater seem to be very picky about motherboard Sata controllers that's for sure. It seems to be a common theme.

Yes CrystalDiskInfo is definitely the true test. I have however heard nothing about MS drivers being better than Intel.

Does the Intel Tool Box (after editing with the hex editor as listed in the other guide) work with a Kingston Drive with 02HA firmware?

That would be the only benefit I could see for us with the 02HA firmware (trim enabled).

Yes, I'm going to throw in my old socket 939 mobo and cpu and try that.

I'm not giving up yet.

Interesting... Kingston removed the 40GB V-Series Boot Drive from their SSD list.
Plus it is not listed under their list of discontinued and replaced modules either.

Enterprise, this works with the product numbers SNV125-S2/40GB and SNV125-S2BD/40GB. The BD version is the same drive but with an Bundled Desktop adapter kit.

DisableDeleteNotify just indicates that TRIM is enabled in the OS, not necessarily in the drive. The real test is reading the value of Word 169 from the drive's IDENTIFY DEVICE data that really tells if TRIM is enabled or not. CrystalDiskInfo reads this value.

Intel SSD Toolbox should work ok also with 02HA, as it also has TRIM. The differences between 02HA and 02HD are some fixes that may or may not be visible to users except in certain situations. The main features are the same.

Kingston wish to forget about this product completely eh lol ? Yeah cheers. I forgot they would have different model numbers. I will add that now.

Well I tried flashing the drive while hooked up to an older socket 939 motherboard.

It won't flash. This time, instead of not finding a Intel SSD, it tells me my SSD has "Pre - production firmware" and that I should contact Intel.

I also tried using the Intel SSD Toolbox with the hex editor fix. No luck - it says "Error reading drive"

So it looks like you HAVE to flash your Kingston SSD with the iSSDFUT to get the Toolbox to work. You can't just enable TRIM (as I have somehow done) on the 02HA firmware. I figured this would be the case, but thought I'd give it a shot.

Bottom line: I'm "stuck" (LOL) with a Kingston SSD with 02HA firmware but with TRIM enabled. But I can't use the Intel SSD Toolbox.

Oh well. This is kind of like hoping to OC to a certain speed, but only getting stability at 10% less than your target.
