Have they already started the Windows 8 pre-orders?

You'd have to assume I'm smart enough to post in the right place. Which I am...

An Intel 320 120GB SSD drive.

All my voracious reading uncovered some tidbits that helped me make this choice. And, the choice to buy 120 GB vs 80 GB even though 80 GB is even enough.

I plan on waiting maybe another firmware release before I install (what with the 8 MB bug currently).

It is possible you have the new FW version already.

I put it on mine weeks ago.

Really easy to update.

Here are the links at Intel.
Released back in September 2011.> http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...eng&iid=dc_rss

The top download on the page is the iso you burn to CD.
Second down is the pdf with instructions.

I had no data loss or anything.

This page has all the downloads listed including the new Toolbox and Imaging software.

That bug has been squished already.

As mentioned, you can go ahead and download the latest FW and burn it to a CD.


Just flash it right out of the box just to be safe. This is what I did with mine, and mine updated without issue.

Not even sure what FW it had originally, but Ive had no issues out of mine.

Everything I read said the firmware update did not fully fix the 8 MB bug as some got it after applying the firmware. The build date on my box is 11/15/11 or somewhere thereabouts.

I also meant I'd wait to install until after the next firmware update (i.e. next one AFTER the attempted 8 MB fix).
