I was able to complete the following on an HP 6910p. Thanks Blue_Frog!
THIS REQUIRES THAT HOTPLUGGING YOUR DRIVE DOES NOT CAUSE YOUR MACHINE TO REBOOT!
Ok, let me repeat, if you boot your machine from USB with your SSD out of the machine and plug in your hard drive and your machine does an automatic reboot, do not proceed, you will brick your drive until you get another machine to fix this. If your machine does not automatically reboot when plugging in the SSD at a DOS prompt, then you can proceed.

Also wanted to mention that before and after the firmware upgrade I was getting 5.9 in the WEI.
I decided to do a ATA Secure Erase, now my WEI jumped to 7.3.
I also then followed the "Four Steps to Optimize Your SSD.

I have tried to upgrade the fw on my samsung ssd, the second part failed by uncompatibility message (tried without hotplug). Now its asking for password.
