Hello, sorry for you. Try to find someone who has the 02G9 firmware (previous) on a bootable cd (it is not available on the intel site anymore) and try to make a "downgrade" of the firmware.... That's the only idea I have.... Or just call Intel...
I have a Gigabyte P35DS3-R, with a ICH9R, everything went find with the IDE mode. I used one of the six yellow sata connectors, which are managed by the ICH9R. The two others purple sata connectors are managed by another chip, a Jmicron I think...
Which one did you use ?
I had a previous firmware cd to check my SSD in the first place. Unfortunately not any more, didn't think I would ever need that again. Do you think a downgrade is possible at all?
I used one of the yellow sata connectors, I don't use the purple ones at all.
Well, I found the old firmware on a website and tried to overwrite the new one. Didn't work, updater just said I use a preversion of a newer firmware and didn't allow to overwrite. That was my last chance I guess.
Could you post a link to the firmware please?
It's a chinese(?) website, couldn't read anything. But I searched for the ISO filename and found this.
But you can't use it anyway, the updater doesn't allow a downgrade once you updated to a newer version.
Why don't you try to apply the 02HA firmware on your ssd again, but from another motherboard ? Using the same bootable CD and the same SSD, if you still have the problem, it will come from you SSD. If not, it comes perhaps from your motherboard... Is your motherboard bios up to date ?
I tried to reapply the 02HA firmware but the updater just prevented that. It says the latest firmware is already installed and quits.
The SSD has to be the problem, I tried it on 2 other computers in the meantime, always with the same result: SSD slows down the boot process and can't be reached
I updated BIOS before installing the SSD, so yes
Just try to install your OS on a classical HDD. Install sdd toolbox from Intel. Install ssd on the second or third sata port and diagnose it with the Intel ssd toolbox ...
If I start the system with the SSD connected it just freezes in BIOS. So I tried to plug it in after Windows 7 was started. Result: Whole system froze and a few seconds later I had a wonderful BSOD. That firmware update really messed up the SSD.
Intel just removed the 02HA update. If only I had waited till weekend, my SSD would still work.
02HA Firmware Upgrade for Windows 7* Systems - Unavailable
Intel has been contacted by users with issues with the 02HA firmware upgrade on Windows 7* systems and are investigating. We take all sightings and issues seriously and are working toward resolution. We have temporarily taken down the firmware update while we investigate.
Thank you for your patience.
Does anyone know details? Is Intel maybe updating the 02HA firmware?
Should I wait before sending my SSD back to Intel? Maybe a new update can fix the SSD?
