    Intel x25-m firmware problem




      Long story short:


      I have a  Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH120G2K5 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive. I have had it for a few years without a problem. I just upgraded to Windows 8 and after I installed the ssd toolbox it said I should update the firmware.

      I went to the link and downloadEd the firmware and create a cd and booted to cd to update the firmware. It said the firmware update from 2cv102hd to 2cv102m3 was unsuccessful. My bios does not have an option to set to legacy or sata, only IDE, so that might've been the problem.

      When I rebooted Windows said there were errors on the disk so I ran repair. Now when I try to run certain programs I am getting interesting errors, like couldn't load a certain file or the bonjour image is not good. I ran the ssd toolbox scan and it didn't detect any errors.

      I realize I most likely need to reinstall windows. But I don't want to do it on this drive if it's no good. So my question ihot here any way to fix this drive or should I just buy a new one?
