Harddisk woes

I'm currently debugging a problem with SATA harddrives in a NAS and there is a certain series of SAMSUNG drives that have a nasty data corruption problem. In short, it means that you have to run a DOS(!) program to upgrade your harddisk firmware! The amount of workarounds and kludges to get this running on my main PC (with a rather picky BIOS) is really staggering.

Ich hatte bereits völlig vergessen, wie ein DOS prompt aussah; das waren noch Zeiten.
