[Discuss] SSD Drives

FYI I downloaded the ISO and booted with that.  You don't need Windows,
just the ability to burn an ISO to CD/DVD/whatever.

I have the EVO 840 in my laptop as well and after booting with the cd
burned from the ISO file, the software told me if wasn't needed, so must
be running the latest firmware.
