Hello,
I see that some people have problems using Smart Switch emergency initialization, so I made this step by step instructions.
Hope that helps

At that point Smart Switch is downloading fw, and storing it to temp folder.
Have u tried reinstaling Smart Switch? Disabling anivirus for 5 min? And make sure u have enough disk space on partition where temp folder is.
