I spent hours trying to find this information

so I am posting the results clearly for people in the future:

 

Need to update your firmware on the Samsung 840 as of (3/5/2013)

then download this file:

**This file is the latest firmware from DEC/2012, you can check this page at the bottom to see if there

is any newer ones:

And burn this to a bootable DVD from your superdrive

then boot from it by rebooting your macbook pro and holding down the "c" key

I found that trying to do this on a bootable USB is a complete waste of time if you can just

make a booatable DVD.
