Have this error:"The firmware file expects a different bootcode on your drive. You are not allowed to continue.Found 0xFFFF - expected 0x3036.Firmware is for a different drive"
Thgt means the update is not for your drive because your drive and the update ID doesnt match.
You need to find the OEM of your drive.
Not exactly chef.
This message means that Binflash could not determine the drive's bootcode which means that at least one command was not properly forwarded to the drive. This could be caused by using the wrong IDE driver or external enclosures.
Ah, huh. I thought its from an official flasher...
