How to flash SATA HDD (Samsung HD204UI) firmware? Tags: Hard Drives SATA USB Stick Samsung Storage Last response: January 23, 2011 10:38 AM in Storage Share wvdt_bel January 22, 2011 5:55:38 PM Hi Can anyone help me pointing me to a bootable media OS which supports SATA, can fit on a USB stick, and can boot from a USB stick? I'm having some trouble flashing the HD204UI with regular DOS; it seems as if SATA is not supported. Secondly I am a bit confused, because the samsung website says I should connect the HDD as Primary/Master, but this is only possible for IDE right? Thanks for any help you can offer.

This will make your SATA drives look like PATA (IDE). wvdt_bel January 23, 2011 10:38:01 AM Thank you for the reply! I'll let you know if it worked BR Can't find your answer ? Ask !
