Since I'm new here I'll make my first thread and say hello with a problem.
I've read the guides posted here to Flash the HP DVD1040 to a Lite-on LH-20A1H.
I've downloaded the necessary tools like flash and eeprom utility.
The problem I'm having is with those utilities.
When I try to extract a backup of the firmware both utilities say: "Error reading FLASH from drive."
Did I miss a step that hasn't been written here or am I an isolated case?
The firmware that is current on it is HPs EH24. There's an update to EH25 I do believe. Is this my problem?
I'm trying to install Windows 7 but the "HP" drive isn't compatible. Of course the Lite-On is.
