Im not sure I understand the entire concept or reasoning behind it to begin with though...

I was planning on following this video tutorial located in your SSD guide here on OCN.

Thats all I need to do and follow the rest of your OCN guide correct?

Its step by step outlined and easy to follow, so unless there is some inaccuracy contained within or a better way to proceed that was my plan for the next reinstall after firmware updating.

Yes.

What I and the other guy was explaining above is that when you update your Vertex 4 firmware you need to back up your system as the update is destructive to data on the drive. However, it sounds as if you have no data on it yet, which then you should update your firmware before installing the OS on it.

Ok ran into a problem right at the very start.

Downloaded the 1.5 firmware update directly from the OCZ website.

Ran the OCZ tool, and it says

"current version of firmware does not support firmware update on primary drive"

huh?

So what do i need to do? Put the OCZ drive into my other computer. Do the firmware update. Reassemble into my new "main" computer and proceed with the windows install?

EDIT: Ok installed the OCZ Vertex 4 into my other computer. Downloaded the OCZtool, and now I get an error"

"Error - download failed - file does not exist"

ROFL....lolwut?

What now?

Use their linux updater tool. Make sure you back up all info on that drive before hand.

Ya I eventually got it figured out TY smile.gif

Ended up using the small linux ISO bootable and although a little frustrating since ive NEVER touched Linux before, everything is good.

Thx again smile.gif

If you use Windows backup to backup to a HDD before destructively upgrading firmware on an SSD, if you then restore that backup using Windows backup then it will carry over the offset from the HD causing the SSD to be mis-aligned.

No it won't be (assuming Windows was installed as it normally should be) Windows should carry over the alignment fine. It has for me in the past after I have done secure erases (restored my custom 4k offset). Windows 7 and Vista offset fine to 1K. XP however would be where the issue lies with default alignment.

I finally got me an SSD! Woot. I will have to put this here and add it later.


And just for fun, here it is in a Cache-box from Nexiom:


Any ideas what would cause the bad time there?
