Can't upgrade new firmware for SSD P256 through my hp pavilion dv6t quad laptop

Hi everyone,

 

i have just bought the corsair P256 . However, the firmware is the old one

so i decide to follow the guideline in the forum to upgrade the new firmware.

 

Currently, i don't have a desktop so i have to upgrade the new firmware through my laptop hp pavilion dv6t quad (Bios version is F13 newest one)

 

I have already created the USB bootable and put the DSR folder into the USB driver

 

I set my laptop to boot through USB. However, the only thing i see on my laptop is the picture Microsoft Windows98. It just stays like that and never executed the DSR file.

 

Can anyone help me? Do i have to upgrade the new firmware through a Desktop mother board (not laptop) ?

 

if so, it is too inconvenient.

 

thank you for your help

That sounds like there is an issue with the NB it self booting to Windows 98 or you may have some TSR trying to load. I would check that the Flash Drive will boot on another system. And you might check with HP for the latest BIOS for your system.

I am not sure. And i don't have any other systems to try

 

Does anyone live around my place so i can ask for helping me update the firmware?

 

I live in Garden Grove, California

 

if i can't update the new firmware to get TRIM support, i think i have to return it because the performance will be downgraded over time

 

PLZ HELP ME someone:(::(:

they only have laptop (no desktop)

right now i have two laptops. One is hp pavilion dv6t quad . The other is Fujitsu Lifebook laptop (bought 3 years ago. Core duo 2Ghz).

I got the same problem for both of them. On the Bios of Fujitsu , I set ENABLE IDE/ATA/AHIC as instructed. On the pavilion , I didn't see the setting for them

 

The only thing which i see is the frozen Microsoft WINDOW98 screen

my hp pavilion dv6t quad and the Fujitsu Lifebook laptop only has one slot for hard drive.

 

I bought the P256 CORsair yesterday. However, i haven't installed any operating system on it yet

 

In order to upgrade the firmware for the Corsair, i have to take out my original hard drive from my laptops and replace it with the Corsair.

So basically, i update it without any operating system.

Is it wrong? Do i need to install an operating system on the SSD p256 first and then upgrade the firmware?

right now my SSD has nothing on it(just bought it brandnew).

 

I don't use Window 98 . I am using windows 7 Ultimate (x64 bit version) because my processor is core i7 .

 

I saw window 98 screen after following the instruction of the create USB boot

you mean HP flash drive tool from this Thread?

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=83833

 

if so, i used it and got the problem above

 

So basically, i need a laptop which has 2 slots for hard drives . Or a desktop, which has 2 slot for hard drive??

 

right now, my laptop only has one slot for hard drive. So if i take my original drive out to replace with the SSD corsair, i won't have any operating system on the laptop because i haven't installed any operating system on it

now everything is back to the Microsoft Window98 screen

 

i don't install any window 98.

 

i just follow the instruction in the forum to install the new firmware

 

anyway, thank for your help. I will return the corsair ssd and buy an Intel ssd instead.

 

the method to update the new firmware is not compatible at laptop level at all
