Samsung 850 PRO firmware update fialed. Now drive won't boot

I turned on my computer and a message popped up to update my 3 month old Samsung firmware.
I used Magician 4.5, pushed the button, and it said "failed to update drive with new firmware".
Oh? When I rebooted later my OS would not boot. I went into the bios and it ID'd the drive as Samsung 3.
Now I can't boot the drive at all. I burned the ISO of the firmware update but it can NOT find the drive in DOS. If I boot with another drive and the ruined drive together, both Samsung 840 Pro and Samsung 850 Pro, it jams the boot until I remove the damaged drive. Anybody have any knowledge or any ideas?

I would contact Samsung for a warranty replacement, if their update software and firmware bricked the drive then I would say the onus is on them to replace it

Glad I saw this thread. I'm installing a brand new 850 Pro into a new Lenovo M93p which is scheduled to arrive early next week, and I would normally do all vendor-provided updates. If it had been at 01 I certainly would have attempted the upgrade to 02, if available.
Just to follow this up...

The 850 Pro which I received already had the 02 firmware in it. So no need to do anything.
