I just purchased a Llano based Gateway laptop. When installing my Momentus xt drive I tried to update the firmware from sd26 to sd28 but it will not work. I have tried both the windows based solution and the bootable cd. Both of which "Failed."
It appears that the firmware utitlity cannot find a controller ("No controller found" when trying to search for drive) and so it does not see the drive. I have tried entering the bios and changing the controller to IDE but this still did not work. I am guessing this is an issue with the new Llano chipset/controller. Any other things I could try?
