I am trying to install the firmware update for my Samsung 840 Series (250GB) on my MacBook Pro 13" (early 2011). As explained in Samsung's installation guide I downloaded the respective .iso file and created a bootable DVD.
Just before I wanted to reboot from the DVD I read in the installation guide that for some systems the firmware update utility will ask you to power cycle the drive meaning that you have to disconnect the SSD from the SATA and power cable for a short moment.
So I guess, the only way to install this firmware update is by removing the SSD and putting it into some SSD enclosure which will be connected to my MBP, right? Is there really no way to update while still having the SSD inside my MBP?
