I did read the thread you need to reread my post and pay attention to the quote's context he needs to put the drive in the OTHER(friends) machine and flash it from there
my post was inreply to his post about his friend needing to remove all his drives and install windows 7 onto to the drive in question this is completely false the update app will select the correct drive and to do the update so long as it can post and see it
