    Anti-static solder does not apply for you, if you want to change the whole drive. If you exchange the drive board (the chipset) from the old drive to the new one you don't have to flash it, but with a lite-on flashing is actually the easier part, the wires are soldered. The easiest part would be to get a RROD box with a working drive, either BenQ or LiteOn and just exchange the laser from your working box with the laser from the RROD box.
