How long does a firmware update take after download


The firmware should take about 20-30 minutes tops - and in most cases, less than 10. If it's still running, remove any media (CD, thumbdrives) and unplug the machine. Plug it in, power it on, and hold down the FF>> button for 15 seconds until the unit restarts itself. You should be able to recover the machine if the old firmware didn't work, or use it if it did install.
