Can't reset OCZ vertex 2

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there ,

I'm running back on HDD and want to factory reset and firmware update my vertex 2 , to be reused for my OS.

I got word that the OCZ nifty toolbox does not work on my new system , due to some marvel controller what-not... also it states on the ocz site that the toolbox does not work with the New Inter "This OCZ Toolbox does not work with Intel RST 10 series drivers "

So I am really stuck on how to reset this baby ,,

Please help

Thank you

Ralph

So you have OS installed on SSD and you dan't want to re-install it again on it but you want to update firmware?

If that is the case why don't you try to backup your stuff and put it back after update like it suggest you to do.

Can I take the SSD and put it in a External device and reset it using the Toolbox on another system , let's say Windows XP on my laptop , then bring it back to my main system , and that'll be it ? OCZ Toolbox is not usable on my new P67 mobo ... aparantly

Or should I just install windows on it again , and just do format when installing ?

not sure what is best ..

I'd say update the drive and install windows again in there after that.

It's what I would do
