    you have to disable RAID as the firmware is only on one of the drives - so if you have your OS loaded - yes - but I have learned that if there is nothing wrong with your drive - why upgrade - then you can always clone your drive - with the speed it should by quick - and just reload it, but don't fix something that's working - saying that if its critical - maybe.

    This. If it works don't flash the firmware. This is the general rule of thumb for everything.
