I'd like to update firmware of my SSD but the iso image downloaded from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26491/Intel-SSD-Firmware-Update-Tool Download Intel® SSD Firmware Update Tool is not bootable. I'm runnning Ubuntu 17.04, I tried to create the bootable drive using dd command, usb-creator and unetbootin utility as well as several USB drives; none of it worked.
The Legacy support in my bios is enabled. If I force booting from the usb drive an error message "No operating system" is shown.
Any idea how to create the bootable drive or how to update the firmware using linux?
[EDIT] My mistake, the ISO is bootable, I missed the CSM settings of my BIOS/EFI to unlock Legacy boot options
I tried to burn the issdfut_2.2.1.iso with Rufus, and the "Universal USB Installer" of the user guide on Windows.
I also tried from Linux with Unetbootin and gnome-image-writer. No more sucess.
The iso is probably broken to boot.
Please, Intel, repost a clean installer, I'm stuck with my production laptop with ext4 corrupted regularly by the 600p SSD.
There are many methods and tools to create a bootable USB media from an ISO in Linux. The dd commands should work, we can also recommend https://unetbootin.github.io/ UNetbootin* or the "https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu Startup Disk Creator*" tool that should be preinstalled in Ubuntu* by default.
