Kingston HyperX SSD bluescreen fix

Kingston have released a fix for BSOD that have been effecting their Sandforce based SSD drives.

I applied the firmware update from here: http://www.kingston.com/support/ssdnow/SH100S3_firmware.asp

I have an AMD motherboard and the update failed with ECode 00000057. The AMD AHCI driver was blocking the update. To proceed I had to switch to the Microsoft AHCI driver (Device Manager>IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers>AMD SATA Controller>Update Driver software>Browse>Let me pick>Standard AHCI) and reboot, then I was able to update. After the update succeeded I reverted back to the AMD AHCI driver (again using device manager) and restarted the system.

All seems well.
