Re: Feedback Thread: Firmware MU02 for MX100

Hey bogdan .. here's a copy of smart ,  software says in good health

 

as far as your other suggestions ...

1 bios is up to date f7 ..

2 enable hot plug , I'll have to figure out where that is Smiley Happy

3 power plan is on high performance and have hdd never off

4 I'll have to check for newer gigabyte z97m-d3h drivers etc.. but

    just had this system built about 24 days ago and the person that

    built it installed and updated everything

5 now the only thing that I have installed between those 14 days .......

   let's see wow, alot of stuff..... I know there were some programs causing

   errors , and were acknowledged on product support pages ..

 

So, maybe those 2 critical errors are not mx 100 related,

Noticed when running sfc/scannow a couple of corrucpt files that can''t

be repaired, but after doing a hour research found out that Microsoft

Update Kb3022345 was causing them and just by un-installing this update

fixed the sfc command errors... https://discuss.howtogeek.com/t/windows-7-update-kb3022345-corrupted-my-sytem-files/28480

sorry for long post..

Hi Joenc,

 

2. In BIOS you should go to 'Peripherals > SATA Configuration > choose Serial ATA Port > enable Hot plug'

4. In that case check the storage driver version, you can check it with Device manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers -> right click on the selected controller -> Properties -> Driver tab 

Gigabyte list 13.0.3.1001 and 13.1.0.1058 versions so if you have one of them you could try the other one perhaps. With no success I would try 13.6.0.1002 (latest) or 12.8.0.1016 (it works very well on few of my systems) - https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/55005/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-

 

I think that this new system with all drivers should work flawlessly. If you won't be able to find a solution you can get in touch with customer service via the link in my signature.

Re: Feedback Thread: Firmware MU02 for MX100

Hi,

I have the following desktop:

Motherboard Asus p7p55d

sda1 -> Crucial MX100 256 GB

sda2 -> Harddisk 500 GB

sda3 -> Harddisk 1 TB

O.S. -> Linux Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS

 

I downloaded the file MX100_MU02_BOOTABLE_ALL_CAP.zip

I Extracted the file MX100_MU02_BOOTABLE_ALL_CAP.iso

I created a USB 2 GBytes bootable using unetbootin
I rebooted from USB pendrive

I choosed "default from the menu

 

After few seconds, the upgrade firmware wrote this on the display:

Device Name: /dev/sda
Firmware Update on /dev/sda Failed!
CMD_STATUS: Command aborted by the drive
STATUS_CODE: 13
Your system will now return to normal operation following a reboot"

 

After this I tried:

1) SATA IDE compatibility mode -> nothing

2) Disabled the two SATA hard disk from the BIOS -> nothing

3) Detached the SATA cable of the two SATA hard disk -> nothing

 

Any idea ?

Re: Feedback Thread: Firmware MU02 for MX100

Hey bogdan, well, as far as

hot plug, mine is off , and I don't know if I really need it on ? I'll never

hot swap the ssd,

 Have you had good/bad experience having this option on/off ?

 

On the intel rst, I uninstalled it on may 21 after the last 2 lock ups...

Read a few help sites that uninstalling that driver might help with shutdown

problems, but I had the 13.6 version installed.

Since I uninstalled this driver and using the windows controller driver , I haven't

had a problem, it's been 3 days now. I'll give it a few more days to see if I

have any more freezes/ lockups... If not , I'll just leave it alone.

 

But , if it does happen again I might try and installing the intel  13.0.3.1001 and 13.1.0.1058 versions 

like you suggest...

And if that doesn't work I'll be calling Crucial , or just going back to mechanical HD !

Thanks for your help and support

That is not about actually hot swapping the drive. As far as I know enabling this option slightly changes power management for particular SATA port. Unfortunately it is not a foolproof solution but it has helped few people out there. I do not have bad experience having this option on.

If that would work for you keep it this way. I have two SSDs from other producers (one Marvell driven and one SandForce driven) that didn't want to work with Intel RST driver in some particular systems, but they worked well without it :-)

How are these tests done? Mine is on 12 hours a day and I had two crashes in 1 month. It is not solved yet. I was using version 12.8 on a ThinkPad W540 with W8.1 x64 running MU02. Is there a new firmware update in the works?

Re: Feedback Thread: Firmware MU02 for MX100

I've got an MX100 512GB on MU02 which does the "not recognised on power on" dance, restarting the PC doesn't trip it into life, plugging it in to a USB 3 <> SATA adapter and then powering down, plugging it back into the PC and firing it up brings it right to life. I haven't experienced any crashing/freezes from the SSD once it's past the POST portion of events, however I do have SATA power management turned off

 

I'm using RST drivers on Win8.1 64bit (Have a drive acting as an SRT cache, so that's basically non-negotiable)

 

Sandy Bridge 2600K

Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3

16GB DDR3 1333Mhz

assorted other bits of hardware of lessenning significance.

 

Toggling SATA hot plug on/off in the bios for the MX100 makes no difference.

 

Suggestions?

Hi everyone!

 

I already wrote on this forum about the problems of my 256 GB MX100 with the new MU02 firmware.

 

I though that problem was resolved but yesterday happened again.

 

I was watching a video on youtube and suddenly my laptop went instable, blue screen on Windows 7 ( I wasn't able to screenshot that blue screen) and Windows rebooted.

 

After reboot appered this screen : 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hcys9vmhkpkdkbu/IMG_20150409_214214380.jpg?dl=0

error 0xc0000225.

 

I tried a couple of time to reboot again but everytime appered this screen with this error!

I thought that was necessary to reinstall Windows like the previous time (check here what happened last time to my laptop with the new firmware MU02: http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Crucial-SSDs/Feedback-Thread-Firmware-MU02-for-MX100/td-p/165974/page/17 ) 0xc0000225 error

I went to sleep...

 

This morning I turned on my laptop to check if Windows gave to me the same error and I was ready to reinstall Windows 7, But unexpectedly I turned on, I saw the message "Windows hasn't been closed correctly" and I chose to to boot Windows normally and now all is working correctly.

 

 

- What specific issues are you having?

 Sometimes Windows become instable with blue screen and after reboot was no able to boot correctly "0xc0000225" error


- Tell us of any troubleshooting steps you have attempted prior to contacting us:

 This is the second time that occured this issue. First time Windows was no able to boot and I reinstalled Windows 7 again.

The second time Windows was no able to boot after different attempts, everytime 0xc0000225 error.

The day after Windows works correctly.

 
- When did the problems first occur?

3 months after the purchase (problems started after upgrade from MU01 to MU02 firmware) 


- The exact system or motherboard model the SSD is used in:

 HP Pavilion DV6-6159SL


- Have you tried it in another system?

No


- Operating system:

Windows 7 x64 SP1 Home premium


- What BIOS SATA mode are you using (IDE/ AHCI/ RAID)?

 AHCI and there is no way to choose in my BIOS other modes

 

 

I have only one question : What is doing Crucial about this SSD? Are they working on a new firmware or no? 

Why can't I come back to the previous firmware MU01? If Crucial is not working on a new firmware I'd like to have the option to come back to the old (but without problems for me) MU01 firmware...

 

If Crucial doesn't give a new firmware or the possibility of firmware downgrade I will sell this SSD,

I can't work with an SSD that every couple of months hangs up and doesn' reboot!

 

 

Thanks

Re: Feedback Thread: Firmware MU02 for MX100

just to update the update , it's been almost a month since I uninstalled the 13.6 intel

rapid storeage drivers  and haven't have a problem since... just using microsofts now

 

Might try one of the older versions from intel or wait for a new one, seems like they've been

coming out every 4-5 months ....

 

So, seems like updating to mu02 and deleting 13.6 is a fix for my mx ssd...

Re: Feedback Thread: Firmware MU02 for MX100

Hello,

 

I just upgraded my MX100 from Firmware MU01 to MU02 using the official ISO. Apparently, the upgrade worked. However, when I was back in Windows 7, I was immediately greeted by this window:

What happened? Before I did nothing but burning the image and restarting the PC. I didn't install any Windows updates.
