Drive Not Recognized By Bios After Reboot, Only Shutdown – Kingston SSD

So I upgraded one of my users laptops today to a SSD drive. Specifically a SSD Now 300 Kingston drive. Everything worked fine but upon reboot drive would not be detected.

After calling Kingston support (they were great) they sent me a link to a firmware to downgrade the drive to. I am posting since its not available on their website. After downgrading the firmware all is well. Reboots now work just fine.

Here is a link, I hope this helps someone else.

How to get Airlink 101 – AWLL3026 USB Wireless Working Under Backtrack 4

This is how to get Airlink 101 – AWLL3026 USB wireless working under backtrack 4.  I actually used a Virtual backtrack 4 for this and it worked just fine.

Download and extract the contents of this file:

To this location:


Note that you may need to create the directory zd1211.  (I did)

mkdir /lib/firmware/zd1211

This will resolve this error, which is what I was getting.
