Not for me it didn't - it wouldn't detect the drive at all.. I even crossed my fingers and tried hot-plugging it. My last resort was going to be sticking it in a desktop rig and flashing it from there. Fortunately the IDE mode worked fine and that was that.

EDIT: This was in an MSI laptop.

What firmware was on it before Steve? From 0002 the instructions say to use IDE.

Gary, mine was on 002 and I used AHCI - had to because there is no IDE in my BIOS. Worked flawlessly. I think you are referring to the 'old' instruction going from 002 to 009.

Thanks Wolfgang good to know. I was making a wild guess since prof had to switch to IDE for his laptop.

Got my new Crucial M4 128GB.
Ran the firmware upgrade without any apparent problems.
Being lazy I used the Paragon Migrate OS to SSD ($20) software which did its job nicely and left me with the "old" spinner as BIOS bootable.

Things do go faster.

Paragon Migrate is great and does everything for you. I know you'll love your new Crucial. I love all of mine.

I finally did the other three drives (my desktop, housemates desktop & laptop). My laptop was the only one which required any finagling to run the update.

Nice to not have any bricks at the end.
