comment How do I upgrade Intel SSD firmware from USB?
I was in the same situation using Windows. The other question isn't actually the same because it's asking about Windows/Linux installation ISOs. The firmware update ISO contains a boot sector that must be preserved when copying onto your USB stick. I tried UNetbootin as suggested, and, of course, nothing happened when it tried to launch the updater. I ended up putting the ISO onto my USB stick using my own method. I opened the ISO with 7-Zip, extracted the Bootable_2.88M.img file in the [BOOT] folder, and used Cygwin's dd utility to copy the raw bootable IMG file onto the USB stick.

comment is it safe to unplug a USB drive while Windows is in sleep/hibernate/off mode?
Using your method, I have also found that plugging the drive back in before waking from sleep or resuming from hibernation will appear as if the drive had not been touched, and ReadyBoost doesn't invalidate the cache file, which is a big win. Now, I just have to stop the netbook from waking itself up from sleep before I get the chance to plug the drive back in. Thanks!
