I recently purchased THIS
OCZ Vertex SSD drive. When I was reading up on how to get the most out of it, one thing I read was to activate AHCI on my mobo before installing windows. That went fine and windows runs great.
My issue is, I now want to check to see if the firmware of the SSD needs to be upgraded per THIS
. My issue is, this only works when the drive is in IDE mode. I tried changing it to IDE and had the updater on a USB stick (I made sure the USB stick boots before the HD), but all I get is a message that says "Missing operating system."
Does anyone have any ideas? I also don't really have another system to throw this drive in to update it unfortunatly.
