I need to update firmware on my Seagate Constellation ES ST32000644NS branded as Dell Equallogic. Since I don't use this drive in a Dell Server but in my Apple Mac Pro the only possible way to do this is to use Linux and hdparm.

Then I found this: http://lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/linux-poweredge/2010-April/042003.html

The correct firmware for my drive is Muskie/KA09.fwh

The only question is how many bytes I have to remove from the Dell header to able to flash it with hdparm ?

It's seems it's 208 bytes. –  Spacedust Oct 9 '12 at 11:28
So far no progress. Firmware starts flashing, but after few seconds I got I/O error. –  Spacedust Oct 9 '12 at 19:48
Malwarebytes Pro complains that your website (Files for comparison) is potentially malicious. –  Michael Hampton Oct 13 '12 at 4:20
Nope, you still seem to have a potentially malicious website. –  Michael Hampton Oct 13 '12 at 12:30
There is just Apache index nothing more... –  Spacedust Oct 13 '12 at 13:41
