Unable to boot into Windows partitions on early-2008 MacBook Pro using Crucial M225 128gb SSD

Unable to boot into Windows partitions on early-2008 MacBook Pro using Crucial M225 128gb SSD

I purchased a Crucial CT128M225 SSD on October 19th for my early-2008 17" MacBook Pro this week (Boot ROM: MBP41.00C1.B03). I'm currently running OSX 10.6.1. The Apple EFI 1.7 Firmware Updater says the update does not apply to this machine.

"Long story short, it looks like the MacBook EFI 1.7 Firmware update addresses this issue, but the firmware update isn't extended to early 2008 MacBooks.

Without the EFI firmware update, the emulated BIOS used for BootCamp fails when it tries to locate the SSD.

This seems specific to SSDs utilizing the Indilix controllers with firmware <= v1.3. Here's hoping 1.4 resolves the issue."
