Hi.

I have RevoDrive X2 with very old firmware - version 1.2.

How I can upgrade firmware? OCZ TollBox not recognized my drive.

I have windows 8.1 PRO installed on that SSD.

From the manual:
1)
OCZ Toolbox is not supported on drives (Vertex 3, Vertex 3 Max IOPS, Agility 3, Solid 3, RevoDrive 3,
and RevoDrive 3 X2) running as the boot drive. The SSD must be installed as a secondary drive for the
Toolbox to properly function. An alternative way of using a standalone Linux distribution booting off the CD
can update primary boot SSD. See “
Updating your firmware with a drive that can not updated as a primary
drive
” section for more details.
2)
The SATAcontroller
must be set
to AHCI mode in the bios to use OCZ Toolbox
.
3)
Any OCZ SSD drives installed in the system
will not be recognized by the Toolbox if you are using an Intel
chipset based motherboard
running
the Intel RST 10.1.X.XXXX AHCI drivers.
We recommend using
Microsoft ACHI drivers for Toolbox to be properly recognized
.
4)
Updating your firmware with the OCZ Toolbox is not supported under Windows XP.
Do you meet 2 and 3? Also, since you are using as a boot drive, it might be easier to hook it up to another computer that recognizes it, so you can update it that way or download the ISO to burn to a CD.
