1. It is highly recommended you make a full backup of your data PRIOR to
performing this firmware update. This will ensure that no data is lost during the
update process.
2. System Requirements
(NOTE: If you are using a USB-based CD/DVD-ROM drive and the system does
not allow you to boot from it, try replacing it with a SATA-based CD/DVD-ROM
drive and re-try the firmware update.)
PC:
•
Host System with a Writable CD/DVD drive
•
Blank CD-R or CD-RW
•
ISO Image burning software (sometimes provided with CD/DVD drive)
•
Access rights to startup system BIOS (not necessary in all cases)
Mac:
•
Host System with a Writable CD/DVD drive
•
Blank CD-R or CD-RW
•
ISO Image burning software (See Mac Disk Utility or 3rd party software)
•
3.
Quick Start
•
Obtain ISO image file for creating bootable CD here:
http://www.kingston.com/support/ssdnow/v100_firmware.asp
•
Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW into your CD/DVD drive
•
Start your CD/DVD burning software
•
Use ISO burning option (sometimes referred to as “Burn an Image”) to
burn ISO image file to blank CD-R or CD-R/W
Note: Do not burn a data disk, burn an image when selecting burning method
•
For more details please consult your CD/DVD burning software users

4.
BIOS setup (PC)
•
Enter BIOS after power-on (usually by pressing the “del” or F1 key)
•
In BIOS, set first boot device priority/order to CD/DVD-ROM (Example 1).
•
Under drive configuration, check that SATA Mode is set to “IDE” (Example 2).
If it’s not already set to “IDE”, change SATA mode from “AHCI” or “RAID”
mode to “IDE” or “Compatibility” mode. Some systems have an additional
SATA mode setting called “Native” or “Legacy”. In this case, set SATA mode
to “Legacy”. SATA mode can and should be returned back to its original
configuration after the firmware upgrade completes.
(Note: If you do not see any of the fore-mentioned mode options named
specifically this way in your system’s BIOS, please note that BIOS
terminology may differ from one motherboard manufacturer to the next.
Therefore, the SATA mode option may appear as ATA, IDE, legacy, etc.
Please consult your specific motherboard manufacturer’s documentation for
more detailed information.)
•
Disable drive password or any system password if one is set.
Example 1
Restart the computer. While the system is restarting, run the system setup program
(BIOS). The BIOS can be activated by pressing a special key such as ESC, F1, F12 or
DELETE. (Refer to your system manufacturer’s documentation for the correct key.)
(NOTE: If you have not already done so, it is highly recommended you make a
full backup of your data PRIOR to performing this firmware update. This will
ensure that no data is lost during the update process.)
Document No. 4808099‐002.A02 5
Example 2
Select IDE mode, save the settings and exit BIOS. (For more detailed instructions on
configuring the BIOS, consult your system manufacturer’s documentation.) Restart the
computer.
5. Firmware Update
System Preparation:
•
As a precaution, perform a backup of all your data to ensure no data is lost
during the firmware update process.
•
Do not unplug power at any time during the firmware update.
•
Notebook users, please charge battery to full charge or use AC power to
prevent any power loss during firmware upgrade.
Firmware Update:
•
If you have not already done so, please make a full backup of your data
PRIOR to performing this firmware update. This will ensure that no data is
lost during the update process.
•
Insert the CD-R/RW containing the ISO image (refer to step 2) into your
CD/DVD drive, close all applications and restart the system
•
Boot from CD/DVD-ROM drive
Note: For Mac, hold the “C” key after power-on to boot from CD/DVD drive
•
The system will automatically load the firmware install tool (Example 3)
Document No. 4808099‐002.A02 6
•
Accept the “Terms of Use” by selecting “y”
•
Select ‘y” again to proceed with the firmware upgrade
•
Please wait for firmware upgrade to complete (typically 15-20 seconds)
•
An “Update Successful” message will appear when the process is complete
•
Remove the CD and power off the system
•
Power on the system and enter system BIOS to restore SATA mode to
original configuration, if necessary, and to designate the SSD as the first boot
device.
Note: If the install tool does not detect the Kingston SSD, please refer to step 2 to
check IDE mode setting requirement.
