(1) When BuZa wrote Dell utilities couldn't flash the drives it's likely that(a)It is commonplace for many utilities are restricted to vendor or manufacturer drives and won't even try to download the microcode.(b)Also the code is modified by vendors to work best with their hardware and software and so is sometimes incompatible and the downloaded microcode is rejected promptly by the drive(s) and their microcode remains unchanged. By the way DKR** drives are notorious for this IMHO.

(2) There are more than a few SCSI utilities available that have no restriction on vendor or manufacturer drive using the industry wide standard download microcode and save command. SCU comes to mind here which is a CLI CAM command shell under Windows. Most of these are FreeWare.

(3) The Dell firmware file C10K600.fwh in the files/firmware section looks like it's been extracted wrong or corrupted? That also explains code rejection.

Does anyone want me to search in my storage for these? I might still have some of this. Also there are more HGST/IBM utilities such as OGM,DDD,etc.



Actually yes, I'm interested. I have a bunch of the HUC109060CSS600 (600gb sas 10k) Hgst drives are from Netapp. Firmware NA01, and NA01. I have no issues using these in my Dell 420, perc710P controller. Dell officially removed HDD restriction in their H700 series controller after the first firmware update. I'm more interested in flashing these Netapp drives with dell firmware N440 just to see if more info will show up about the drives. Also, what utility would you recommend for use in windows? I'm also going to look at the dell firmware and the utility they use, see if i cant figure something out.

Thanks

To reflash HGST disks from one vendor to another, it is necessary to deactivate checks inside the hard drive itself, as provided by the manufacturer. Dig the code, look for keys, look for vendor commands. No free utility, let alone OEM flasher, will help in this case.

Do you want me to post what I have? Do you want to PM and if so how do I set that up? No guarantee any of this will work changing the firmware as could reject the code and leave the hdd unchanged.

To me? I don’t need to. I can change them as I please. IBM, HP, DELL, NETAPP, SUN, HITACHI, etc ... From any to any. If there is any doubt that the microcode will work, then on the previous page there are screenshots. Need to show NA01 hard reflashed into N440 or what?
