Been out a while...vertex 2 question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just a couple of quick questions.

My vertex2 has firmware 1.11 on it. I noticed on the OCZ site that FW 1.24 is available but shows "SSDUpdate does not work with the Intel 10 series RST drivers". I am a little lost there.

In device manager for the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, I have the Intel(R) ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller, with the driver version of 9.6.0.1014.

So, does this mean I can not upgrade my firmware? And, should I upgrade my intel driver to the newest? (I saw in another post that I can get a new version, not sure if I should yet or not.)

Thanks for the help!!!

The OCZ SSDUpdate will not recognize the ssd(will say no drives found) if you have the Intel 10 series RST drivers installed. You have the 9 series,9.6.0.1014 so you are fine. The reason being is until recently the 10 series drivers haven't been "official" and posted on Intel's website. Basically, update the FW to 1.24 with your current drivers, then install the new 10 series ones. Intel finally officially put the drivers on the website here .

Since the 10 series came out on Intel's website the OCZ SSD toolbox will eventually get a update to support the drivers when updating the firmware so the utility will recognize the drive.

Thanks for clarifying.

Also, what is the best program for backing up your drive before flashing? Is the win7 backup utility the best thing to use? Any thing to watch out for?

Thanks

Windows Backup and Restore is quite a decent tool it has quite fast system image creation, and the normal "backup" part is quite decent, easy to use, and uses normal Zip files so you can recover files from it easily even without the software..

Oh and since you're on Windows it's free...
