Need to boot windows via removable storage to update my SSD.
I've run into a problem on my system involving my SSD, OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS, causing my system to pause/lock-up. Upon contacting my manufacturer (Origin) about the problem, they told me that it was my SSD firmware most likely. After researching I confirmed this myself. Boatloads of people have had this same issue with the older firmware, which I have.
Updating should solve all my issues. But PROBLEM : My secondary hard drive does not have a compatible partition style for installing Windows (it has a different style because it's a very large HDD) and I can't get remote assistance on the issue due to my ethernet port being broken. I can't send in my system either because I'm currently living as an expat in China and sending things like this back and forth across the border is nearly impossible and not affordable.
I have a 16GB SD Card and a 4GB flash drive. Is there anything I can do?
I will have everything about my computer repaired after 6 months, when I return to the states. But 6 months without a computer is not something I can have happening.
My system is no longer bootable in normal mode, so I'm using Safe Mode just to write this.
Edit : For clarification, I need THIS firmware update installed to my active system drive.
Edit 2 : Not sure if it matters, but it's a good habit to post specs :
Type : Origin EON17S (17" Laptop)
CPU : Overclocked Intel i7 Extreme 2920XM (Sandy Bridge / Second Generation i7) @ 4.1 - 4.8Ghz
Memory : 16GB Kingston Hyper-X Dual Channel DDR3 Memory @ 1600Mhz
GPU : Overclocked NVIDIA 580M GTX (720Mhz Core, 1800Mhz Memory)
Primary Drive : OCZ Max IOPS Solid State Drive (550Mbps Read / 500Mbps write).

How about booting Hirens Boot CD or Ultimate Boot Disk to install the firmware from stick from either one's mini-XP explorer?
