Could it be worth trying to update in another rig.

Mines on firmware 309 and the Win based updater can't find the drive either.

What is your BIOS set to, IDE, AHCI or RAID? (mines in Raid) I'm about to switch the BIOS to IDE and run the bootable method.

If all local possibilities are exhausted, yes. But try switching your BIOS to IDE to start with and re-try the manual boot.

I am in AHCI, I thought it said that problem was fixed.
Perhaps I should try IDE.
Was not even sure the system would start in IDE.

OK, I will try IDE later.
Thanks very much for your help.
If all else fails I will try in another system.
It is so strange it runs well, just shuts down every hour.
Just shut down 5 mins ago.

AHCi 'should' work -but IDE is the quickest way to eliminate shannaingans,

I just reset my Raid to IDE, booted from the disc found the drive and the update went cleanly.

If it works, just make sure you reset your Sata config back to AHCI otherwise your OS won't boot. (But IDE will boot the firmware disc perfectly fine)

Thanks for this.
I will do it this way. I wont forget to change back to AHCI, I spend a lot of time in BIOS, I love overclocking.
Let you know later if this works.

No worries mate. (it literally takes 2-3 mins for the whole process including changing to IDE, updating and back again)

Fingers crossed it won't be necessary.

Yep, that's the bug all right. Once updated it'll be back to non-stop operation

Cool - just send me a visitor message saying "it worked" or ask for more help if it didn't. I think you'll be fine

No luck.
But I think I have the SSD connected to one of the Marvell SATA controllers.
Is this a problem?
Do I need to connect to another connector?
I have 2 Marvell and 2 normal SATA III, all currently being used.

The marvel controller might indeed be an issue.

Simply swap to to one of the non-mavell controllers while you update. It won't affect anything else since you won't be booting into Windows.

I think I read somewhere that you cant be connected to a Marvell controller.
This is a pain in the a**.
I will do tomorrow. Cant be bothered now.
Thanks again. Post results later tomorrow.
At least this system works, just have to turn off every 50 mins or thereabouts.
