SanDisk Ultra SSD Firmware download for MAC and Linux and PC

SanDisk Ultra SSD firmware version 365A13F0, Manual download for MAC and Linux and PC

SanDisk has released the ISO firmware images to allow SSD firmware update on operating systems that are not supported by the SanDisk SSD Toolkit. Each capacity drive has a separate Firmware ISO. You MUST use the correct firmware ISO for the capacity SSD you have installed.

WARNING: Applying the wrong firmware ISO to your SSD product will render the drive unusable! Please confirm the capacity of your SSD product before proceeding with the firmware download and update.

Step 1:

Verify the capacity of your SanDisk Extreme SSD and download the corresponding firmware ISO

SanDisk Ultra 60GB SSD
60GB 365A13F0 Firmware ISO

SanDisk Ultra 120GB SSD
120GB 365A13F0 Firmware ISO

SanDisk Ultra 240GB SSD
240GB 365A13F0 Firmware ISO

Step 2:

Burn the saved image file to a CD/DVD with another software application then boot from the CD and perform the firmware update.

a.     Restart your computer.
b. For PC and Linux - Make sure the CD/DVD drive is the first device in the boot sequence defined in the BIOS, and restart your computer with the newly created CD/DVD boot disk inserted. 
FOR MAC:  With the firmware disk inserted Press and hold the “C” key while the computer restarts.
c.      After restart, your system will boot to the SanDisk Firmware Updater
d.     Select the drive you want to update from the list displayed.
e.      Press ENTER to start the update.
f.      When the update is completed, Press ENTER to shutdown computer.
g.     Remove the boot CD/DVD from the drive and restart computer.
h.     That’s it…finished!

Burned the ISO image, no problem.  Booted it from the external USB drive (don’t have an internal anymore), and selected it.   Started to spin up, but then complete black screen.  MacBook Pro 8,1

Why can’t you guys just give us a bootable USB installer?  No need to waste disks for this kind of stuff.
