    Firmware Update - Brick SSD -G2




      Drive = Intel G2 X25 80gig.


      Download latest Intel toolbox and firmware update utility, install.


      Says SSD in IDE mode.

      Reboot to BIOS change back to AHCI (was on AHCI when system was setup)

      Back in windows

      Run Update Utility, says AHCI and can proceed with Firmware update.

      Drive begins to update firmware.

      Desktop icons and all menus disappear (like an explorer crash)

      System then BSOD

      SSD is now no longer seen by BIOS.


      Have tried going back to IDE/Compatibile mode, restart, no SSD detected.

      Switch back to AHCI save and restart, No SSD detected.


      Any recovery for this? or have to RMA?
