Apparently the DOS updater doesn't detect the mSATA port on the Y470. I did managed to update to S5FAM011 using Win 7 PE.

Thank you for your questions guys, we actually had a bit of trouble ourselves. Because of this, we uploaded a new Firmware download and put together a step-by-step tutorial for applying the update.

Your questions should be answered in the tutorial but, if not, please do not hesitate in letting us know.

Really appreciate you posting the new FW update. Is there a trick to installing it? I've tried normally in Windows 7 and I get the message "Can't detect any Device!!". When I tried with Windows 7 in safe mode the device is detected, but when I run the update I get the message: "AP-key NOT enabled by Device!"

Any ideas?

Is this a firmware for the 128gb msata? And does it affect the data on the msata
