HP SATA Hard Drives - FIRMWARE UPGRADE REQUIRED to Prevent Erroneous Drive Failures on Certain HP SATA Hard Drive Models

In most cases, the drive will operate correctly following a hot-plug removal and re-seat or a power-cycle of the system. However, in some cases, the drive may have already exceeded the Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T) thresholds as indicated by either a flashing amber LED or as reported during the Power-On Self-Test (POST). If this occurs, the drive will require replacement. Otherwise, it may be possible and is recommended to save the drive and data by upgrading the firmware as described in the Resolution section below.
