How to update firmware for Vertex 2, Vertex LE and Agility 2 OCZ SSDs - video tutorial

Hi friends, today's tutorial we will see how we update the firmware for OCZ Vertex SSDs 2, Vertex LE, Agility 2. The method that we use is the recommended both for those who use Windows as the main operating system and for those who use Linux or Mac OS.
What helps a firmware update for OCZ Vertex SSDs 2, Vertex LE, Agility 2?
Firmware is a small file that instructs the controller, set them boundaries and tells the device how and what should be the behavior of the device (SSD) in different situations. Practically there are rules that will work SSD. By update firmware can eliminate any problems that occur on some motherboards, can fix the bugs of the device may improve technologies that come with this device may become compatible with some motherboards with up to when a firmware update was not compatible, you can set or remove certain limitations set by the manufacturer.
In this case, the new firmware 1.37 solve the problem of blue screen (BSOD) that occurs when the PC enters sleep mode
If we want to make update firmware in Windows should fulfill several conditions, namely:
- Windows should not be installed on the SSD
- To have AHCI support and to be activated in the BIOS
Now I do not know if anyone will stand to do a reinstall of Windows on a disk just to meet the conditions and make SSD firmware update.
Well, the method outlined today will allow us to do firmware updates even if Windows is installed on the SSD and even if we do not support AHCI (as happens in my case)
What does exactly the method outlined in the tutorial?
- to have at hand a 512 MB or 1 GB stick or an empty CD
- to download Universal USB Installer
- to download the ISO OCZ Tools image (a live Linux distribution created by OCZ). Live means an operating system that can be run from a CD or USB stick without the need to install it.
- to make the bootable USB stick with the help of Universal USB Installer as shown in the tutorial or to burn the downloaded ISO image.
Tutorial bootable Windows CD burning
Tutorial bootable Linux CD burning
- to make sure that we have the computer on which the SSD is located, connected to a router and that we have already created the internet connection in the router or to have a wireless network card on the PC where the SSD is located because the firmware will have to be downloaded from the internet during the update process.
The further you find them in the tutorial video course.
CAREFUL: Videotutorial.ro not responsible for cases of failure and bring the device breaks down. Due to varied existing hardware market and incompatibility with other hardware, the risk that the update to fail and lead to SSD failure.
That said, I invite you to watch the video tutorial to see exactly how it is updated firmware for OCZ Vertex SSD 2, Le Vertex, Agility 2

  1. video quality is very poor… I did not expect!

  2. I see that go pretty hard with all the SSD PC. I think I'll stay a while on hdd. so I sata3 on the motherboard.

    I don't know how you count the boot time… you probably take into account the post boot which will always be the same no matter what SSD you put.
    My SSD is one of the old generation, SATA 2 and yet look how long booting Windows 8. Show me a HDD that have Windows on it with the hottest, deep and harsh settings / performance optimization that 7 to boot in seconds. This is proof here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XzpSyBKaMs

  4. I have a gigabyte motherboard has SATA ports and can mount 2 3 SATA HDD or SSD?

    But their speed will be limited. You will have SATA2 "speed": http://sarcomputer.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/sata2_vs_sata3.jpg?w=600&h=305&h=305

  6. Well, what do you do on the PC and start counting after 15 seconds? started for 30 seconds. this is how my pc starts in 30 seconds without ssd and i have windows 7 loaded with all the nonsense - it is known that windows 8 has a boot time less than 7. if i put windows 8 it starts faster than 30 seconds. boot as boot… but when you hit the device manager after shutdown it took a few seconds to open it. I don't know at least I was expecting more from an SSD.

    alex:
    pai go of what you give to the PC and start counting after 15 seconds? started in fixed 30 seconds. so my starts and PC in seconds without 30 ssd windows and I have loaded all the crap 7 - 8 know that Windows has a boot time of less than 7. if you put Windows starts faster 8 30 seconds. boot the boot ... but when you give the device manager shutdown after few seconds it took him at least deschida.nu know I was expecting more from a SSD.

    I can not say that some parts of the tutorial did not come in desktop capture. Room for only part of my desktop.
    Device Manager was open a long time ago. it seems to you that it took a long time because I had to keep looking at the camera display to see where I have to shoot the window for it to enter the "range" of the camera.
    Details easy to understand and notice by any man with little logic. Unless you're only 10 years old. then I understand you perfectly…

    No offense but you're kind of parallel and talking PCs here pointless 15 seconds counted by the time that's not part of the boot during working guy motherboard and is not related to the storage it's SSD or HDD and how it's performing. This 1 in hand to hand 2 tutorials they look to see what can a HDD and SSD besides a mention after https://www.videotutorial.ro/?p=2981 si https://www.videotutorial.ro/?p=7273 .

  9. Hello,

    I have a question even if not part of the subject mentioned by you
    I want to change icons (icons) fonts W7 with the XP, those representing sites TTF, OTF. The latter are more obvious than in W7, not being able to distinguish between TTF and OTF.
    Can this be? Those who have not spoken, I never asked, they told me some .dll something that should be changed. Please much if I can reply.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello tuturor.Voi make tutorials about SSDs?
    I wonder how many users have something in the PC?
    I wonder how many users throw money on that?
    Try to present something of interest even to 70% of no. visitors that you have.
    From what I see from reviews, this tutorial has not satisfied anyone.
    If I'm doing a tutorial with a PC costing $ 20.000, or a laptop that cost $ 3.000 as credti
    anyone interested? Answer ... NOT (can 0,1% for those with money)
    You have very good tutorials and great respect utile.UN
    In the past you presented to 800 RON.Aveti Mainboard impression that we were born in
    bani.Raspuns ... NOT
    Hats off to the tutorials in the past, but that does not mean you always right.
    I was not displease not critical, try to tell you where wrong.

    If you do not own a SSD that does not mean no one SSD and one can not afford it.
    This tutorial is very long urged the comments box. Only I counted 20 comments demanding a tutorial updates firmware SSD in Linux, just because the update of Windows is conditioned by the 2 requirements (Windows is not installed on the SSD and you get support AHCI)
    Watch wider interest and not just from your point of view! It is a public site, visit us over 15000 people. As proof tutorial made almost 1000 visionaries (write under the title tutorial has many visionaries will do)
    What is interesting for you, is not interesting for another… and vice versa… ..we must think as a community and not individually.

  12. Well thought out and excellent tutorial. I've done a firmware update on Windows OCZ2 at 1.35 and frankly I do not feel like the past about others. After viewing I did update to 1.37 painlessly and then I did an update to 3 OCZ2.22. There are good tutorials and now many people have bought when SSDs were expensive HDDs last year. Maybe not all have money expensive processors or motherboards ROG series or similar, but I appreciate this tutorial because I was useful (and certainly not of those 0,1% of previous comment). Thank you.

  13. Hello!

    if you were not careful then boot from a USB stick, not on ssd

  16. Very good tutorial. Thank you Adi.
    I have an OCZ Vertex SATA II 2 3_5, SSD 240GB (2VTX240G).
    The first version update does not thrill me because I have a multi boot operating systems 3 him.
    This version failed to fix, I did the firmware update 1.37 and went perfect.

    I was also expecting interesting tutorials from Alexandru Șerban (Adobe After Effects…).
