Question on ssd firmware update before installing OS
I just purchased a OCZ Agility 3 and I would like to update the firmware before I install my OS. I purchased this ssd because my current hhd failed. So I can't use it to download the firmware. Would it be best to update the ssd by sata to esata from my laptop?If so, do I just need the sata to esata cable? or buy an enclosure and go the usb 2.0 route?

or you could put the OCZ Agility 3 into your current computer (the one with the bad hdd) and use a linux boot CD and boot into something like knoppix or ubuntu (do not have to install it) and use OCZ's Linux-based Firmware Updater and update the firmware from a linux desktop, then just shut down, and install your OS
Excuse my naivety, but I haven't really used linux before and I dont know where I could grab a boot cd. I'll definitely consider it if its my last means or if its the best way in terms of time and hardware protection.
