In very top right corner you will see PLD-DH-12B2LH (B)

Can anybody tell me for sure what OEM part this is and can it be cross-flashed to that OEM part, seems HP has neglected to shoot any info nor has revisions on this drive, which is a very good drive if it did not have that HP firmware on there.
Most importantly, how to cross-flash this drive I am clueless how it can be done with HP firmware => Lite-ON
