While performing a routine reinstall for an HP Slimline s7520n I ran into an issue when updating the HDD firmware. I was able to reinstall the OS no problem, so afterward I went to HP's site and saw there was a firmware update for the HDD. I used a USB floppy to apply the update and upon the restart the HDD is now not recognizable. I removed the hard drive and connected it to another PC using a USB to SATA kit and still nothing. The PC see that a new USB device is attached and I can physically feel the HDD running, but nothing.

I even attempted to reinstall the OS, by booting from the CD and Windows states there is no HDD found.
Any ideas...

Is there anyway to rollback the firmware?
