Intel SSDs face delay due to firmware issue

Posted on Monday, July 27 2009 @ 19:08:24 CEST by

Puget Systems reports Intel requested stores to hold shipments of its new 34nm solid state disks due to a firmware issue that causes data corruption if a password is set on the drive in the system BIOS and then changed or disabled later.
After several hours of waiting on Intel’s tech folks I am now pleased to be able to relay to our customers the status of the Intel drives. There is a defect in the units which causes data corruption if - and only if - a password is set on the drive in the system BIOS… and then changed or disabled later. Initially we were told this might require a complete reworking of the drives, and that those we had gotten in were effectively unusable, but Intel was able to work out a firmware fix for the problem. That won’t be available immediately, but should be showing up in about two weeks.
