chucktech Posted January 31, 2013 Share Posted January 31, 2013 Having an issue updating the firmware on CSSD-F60GB2/RF2 No matter what I do, the firmware loading process either locks up the machine or reboots it after approximately 1 minute, but the firmware version never changes. I think I'm doing everything correctly, but open to hearing if there's some obvious mistake on my part. This drive is a spare that's been on the shelf for a year and is now needed. As always, I went to install current firmware before using it. I have a couple workstations set up just to do firmware upgrades and such, they are clean and easy to toggle different operating systems and BIOS settings like AHCI. I've updated many SSD drives before from a wide array of manufacturers. Not saying I'm expert, but just that I'm not new to doing firmware upgrades. I've tried Vista, Vista Ultimate, Windows 7 and Windows 8, and have been using what I believe is the correct tool, the 2.4 firmware package in this forum. The F60 drive shows up reliably in every instance, displaying 2.0 firmware. The 2.4 pkg file loads cleanly within about a second or two. After confirming Yes that the drive contents could be lost, the system will either lock up hard or will reboot after approximately 60 seconds. The F60 drive is a secondary in AHCI mode, contains nothing. I even tried initializing it, no difference. Then tried formatting, no difference. Is it an issue the /RF2 designation? Is 2.4 definitely the appropriate firmware? As mentioned by Yellowbeard, there is no longer an alternate firmware .pkg in the tool to try. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
