It seems strange that the OP's drive was no longer recognised in BIOS after the firmware downgrade, yet yours still identifies itself, albeit incorrectly. Something is different ...

I would first read the ROM with SHT and obtain a terminal log. That would help us to understand what is happening.

As for the IDE port address, a tool such as MHDD or HDAT2 should be able to tell you.

I can fix this with full SHT but you would have to ship the drive to me (Portugal) and pay shipping costs....

Hi,

This is just a quick record to explain how I saved my HD103UJ (original firmware 1AA01118), accidentally flashed with firmware 1AA01117 of a Dell package and renamed to HD753LJ, thanks to the amazing work of fzabkar (amongst others).

Cross-posting to https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads ... re.648542/ (previously mentioned in this thread) because both threads helped me to revive my drive.

First of all, thanks to the original poster and the fantastic work of fzabkar!

Most helpful replies were:

Steps:
  • Created a MS-DOS bootable USB key with https://rufus.ie/
  • Copied the patched firmware from this reply
  • Followed this recommendation:
    Quote:
    I would now reconfigure the SATA controller in your BIOS for compatibility or legacy IDE mode. Install your drive on the first SATA port, and disconnect all other drives.
  • Note: I tried the "sflash24" method from this reply but it did not work in my case
  • So I tried the "sf.exe" method from here (I replaced "HD751LJ" with "SAMSUNG")
    Code:
    sf.exe -f 1aa17aqm.d38 -s -x -b -v -a 20 -i SAMSUNG
  • Note: I downloaded "sf.exe" from another topic
  • The command was stuck on "Sending binary downloads", so I decided to power off / power after a while and to my surprise the firmware was successfully patched!

I did a lot of trials before getting it to work. If someone is in the situation, I will be glad to help and give further information.
