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.
