After reading thru some threads on this I am abit confused. I have a new build in progress and will be my first using SSDs. I would like to flash the vertex 3 with the latest firmware before installing and loading W7 on it. I have 2 other pc's : desktop w/ XP and a Laptop w/ W7.
Am i able to download OCZ toolbox and firmware on my Dsktop and use a sata to usb adapter cable to link the SSD for updating ? So this way i wouldn't have to pull out the tower open it up etc.. Or just use the laptop and run it via the same cable ?

You have to pull out the case if you use the toolbox, but if you use the linux-base tools you don't need .
So by using linux based tool I can use the Dsktp XP machine to do it via the sata to usb cable link ?
You can do it on the one with win7, but backup your data first.
And make sure don't lost the power during the flash.
