After trying several other approaches from various sites including crucial's forum, none of which worked as described, I was so glad that I came across your blog post and I'm almost there. Hopefully the firmware update can salvage my SSD drive on a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.6.8.
The USB stick is recognized as bootable and prompts me on start up. Unfortunately, after selecting the rEFIt option, I end up with a screen that says 'no bootable device – insert boot disk and press any key' and a blinking cursor, so I never see the UNetbootin/SeaFlash option. Not sure what's wrong. Timing issue? Motherboard doesn't support USB as boot device?
I was hoping you might be able to shed some light on the matter.
Bis dahin freundliche Grüße aus Venice, CA und besten Dank im Voraus,
