Upgrading SATA 2.5 drive to 200 Gig Hitachi (0A53070)

I am interested in upgrading my HDD to a 200 Gig Hitachi 7K model; 0A53070

 

This drive should support the BIOS password / encryption feature, but I don't know if the drive ROM will need to be updated? 

 

Can anyone tell me if this drive will require a DMI update to work with my x61 Tablet?

 

Thanks in advance...

I think this utility--Hard drive firmware update utility (Bootable CD ISO)--will determine whether the hard drive needs to be updated or not.

 

Hope this help

THANK YOU!!! 

 

This looks like what I need... 

 

I will let you know if it works once I receive my replacement system...  Should be in about a week...

 

Best regards:
