      Hi,

       

      I have two 80GB X18-M SSDs. Had a few problems upgrading my laptop to Windows 7 so updated the firmware on the drives to the latest version, which I did without any problems/error messages. Attempted to install Windows on the drive but it crashed again. This time the drive disappeared from the install options and from BIOS. Hard booted machine to clear everything down. Drive re-appeared but as an 8MB Intel Bootloader. Have tried deleteing all partitions, Intel Toolbox Secure erase - didn't recognise disk as X18 either, reloading Firmware - upgrade tool didn't recognise drive and HDDerase.

       

      Any suggestion on how to return drive to its true identity?

       

      Many thanks,

       

      Alan.
