Seagate firmware update FreeDOS/Linux

2016-11-12, 10:18 AM

I own a S440 and I like to upgrade the firmware for the Seagate SHDD

 

( http://support.lenovo.com/de/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-S-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-S440/downloads/DS119349)

 

There is no bootable iso or anything I can use directly. At least I need the correlation between the extracted *.LOD files and the compatibles HDD. Seagte does not have any further information about this firmware upgrade. (https://apps1.seagate.com/downloads/request.html  , Part Number: 1EJ162-073) I guess some OEM restrictions.

  • FreeDOS did not work.

 

with this guide you could at least try to flash the firmware under *nix:

  1. Which firmware file do I need? (ST500LM000-SSHD-8GB)
  2. Why lenovo do not release at least a bootable WinPE for flashing firmwares?
