Installation instructions
Notes:
  • This utility is a bootable diskette based program, so you need to prepare a Floppy Diskette Drive (FDD) for your ThinkPad system. Please consult with documentation accompanied with your ThinkPad system. If you encounter a problem attaching a FDD to your ThinkPad, please call your local Support Center.
  • Any hard drive password must be removed prior to running this utility.
  • Each diskette is bootable and is made to automatically start the firmware update utility which inspects your hard drive and indicates the correct diskette file (FWHDnnnn) to boot with.
  • Each diskette contains several executable files other than FW.EXE. Do not run these programs. Running these programs could ruin your hard drive.
  • The firmware update utility cannot identify a hard drive in the docking station with the exception of the 570 UltraBase. Remove the drive from the docking station, and install it in a device bay of your ThinkPad system and then boot to the firmware update diskette. If you encounter a problem installing the hard drive into your ThinkPad, please contact your local Support Center.
  1. Close all open applications
  2. Click the FWHD3401.EXE link to download the file from the Web page.
  3. When prompted, save the downloaded file to c:\.
  4. Run the file you downloaded to create the first bootable diskette.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to create the diskette.
  6. When the diskette has been created, place the diskette in the floppy disk drive of the ThinkPad system that has the hard drive to be updated.
  7. Boot the system from the diskette. The firmware update utility will show all of the hard drives that are detected. They will be listed in the upper area of the Main Menu.
    • A blinking mark to the left of the drive listed indicates that an update is required.
    • No blinking mark to the left of the drive listed indicates that the hard drive has latest firmware and there is no need to update, or the firmware update is not for your drive.
    • If an update is available for your drive, it may not be present on the FWHD3x01.EXE diskette. If this is the case, the diskette name that contains the firmware will be displayed. Download that diskette and go through these steps again replacing the FWHD3x01 with the diskette name displayed on the screen.
  8. Follow the instructions on the screen to update the firmware.

    Attention: Do not power off the ThinkPad system during the firmware update process, or your hard drive may not be usable anymore.

  9. When the installation is complete, remove the firmware update diskette from the floppy disk drive and power off your ThinkPad system.
    Note: Do not restart the ThinkPad system using the Ctrl-Alt-Delete keys.
