256GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Hi, I have tried to update the firmware for this drive (original with computer) and it comes up:

"NON SYSTEM DISC". Anyhow, I don't know what happened next, but when I start computer this comes up and I have to "PRESS ANY KEY" to start computer.

How can I get rid of this so that the laptop starts normally, as it will not start unless I "press any key". Thanks in advance.

Re: 256GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Sounds like the system thinks it's a removable media drive. That's how the system responds when it detects and tries to boot an optical disc.

Re: 256GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Sorry for the misunderstanding, but this is the original 'C' drive that came with the laptop.

SAMSUNG PM810 2.5" 256GB SOLID STATE HARD DRIVE, maybe I used the wrong term, "format".

I tried to upgrade it as recommended and this is the result.  thanks.

I do not see an SSD update on the M17x-R3 Dell File Library? Provide a link to the firmware you downloaded.

Re: 256GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Thanks. I don't know where I received it from but it is called "MX35DEM4" THEN, MX000050

I will understand if you can't find it as I tried to copy and paste, but couldn't.

Anyway thanks for assistance. Cheers, Ian

By the way, I'm impressed with product.

Re: 256GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Ok. Now I am really confused. The file mx35dem4 (http://tiny.cc/syh3fw) was for the Seagate ST95005620AS 500GB 7200rpm hard disk drive. But your saying you have the Samsung PM810 SSD-S2 drive installed?

Re: 256GB SOLID STATE DRIVE

Thanks for all your help. This was for the grandchildrens machine and I accidently installed it.

Anyhow the laptop has gone back to normal, so it's ALL GOOD!. Cheers, Ian
