Default 2 F-40s in raid 0 & firmware update

Can the 2.0 firmware be done in raid set-up ? I formerly had update when used
in AHCI , when using 1 of the F-40s as the boot drive . The HD Tune Pro showed that my raid set-up has firmware 1.1 . My tests showed very good results . I'm just wanting to get the best out of my investment . So what should I do to update ?

Use a live environment or another system and run the drive as a secondary in AHCI. I don't think the update will work with RAID enabled.

Does that mean that firmware update won't work in raid or am I over reacting to the answer ?

You CANNOT update the firmware of a storage device in RAID as the utility would only see the RAID storage and not the individual drives.

Understood . The 2 F-40s in raid cannot receive firmware update while in raid configuration , or any other storage device .

Also, there is no performance improvement from the older firmwares to the 2.0. If you are not having issues, there is no need to upgrade.

The firmware needs to be done to each drive individually which is not possible
when in raid . I will be hoping for other methods to work . You all do a very good job on your forum , and I want to thank you all for all your efforts .
