How to flash SATA HDD (Samsung HD204UI) firmware?


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.

  1. In your BIOS setup, temporarily reconfigure your SATA controller for legacy or IDE compatibility mode. This will make your SATA drives look like PATA (IDE).
