Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA Hard Drive Firmware Upgrade fom HP 24 to HP26 for Pavillion m9441it

Pavillion m9441it Elite
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Pavillion m9441it Elite has the Seagate 7200.11 HD with busy bug problem that I solved by following a tutorial on internet.
The HP drivedetect.exe utility result is: Drive Name ST3750630AS - Sn 9QK0MMYZ - Rev HP24
Now I would like to update the firmware. Sp40966.exe don't work on windows 10.
I would like to know if I can apply the update on this page:

http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=wk_91921_2&swEnvOid=4060#tab5
sp52107.exe contains HP26_750.bat that contains the command
sf -m moose HP26CE3D.bin -s -f -v -b -x -i ST3750630AS
That seems made for my hd.

 

Can anyone tell me if the update for workstations can go well for Pavillion PC as the m9441it model?

Thank You

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA Hard Drive Firmware Upgrade fom HP 24 to HP26 for Pavillion m9441it

The original HP m9441it shipped in 2008. The hard drive life potential was 3 years.  The problem is an old drive with a known firmware issue, and you just now realized the problem?  If the drive is still functional, I would have a clone performed using the same size hard drive or slightly larger (1T).

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA Hard Drive Firmware Upgrade fom HP 24 to HP26 for Pavillion m9441it

The drive works perfectly . I would like assurances on the correct firmware update procedure from the current version of the H24 HP26 rev.B in order not to damage the ' hard drives.
I'm looking for someone who has already performed the update procedure shown in the previous post or any employee of HP that can answer.

Because your now using WIN 10,  it would sense the lack of WIN 7, and abort.

 

I would still replace an 8 year old drive. I use stacks of ST1000DM003 drives to clone my various systems.  Now I'll need at least 4 new drives to clone into WIN 10.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA Hard Drive Firmware Upgrade fom HP 24 to HP26 for Pavillion m9441it

It is true, the sp40966.exe update suggested by hp for m9441it fails on win10.

The procedure for HP workstations at this link:
http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=wk_91921_2&swEnvOid=4060#tab2
takes place from dos using a USB boot key.
Therefore I would like to know if anyone has tried this upgrade from DOS on a PC similar to m9441m and if you have experienced problems

Attempting to work in DOS to run the bin file could result in a bricked OS.  I leave you now!
