Mac Pro :: Graphics Firmware Update 1.0: IMac And It Compatibility With Windows 7?

Apr 18, 2012

I have one of the original MacPros 1,1  2x266 currently running OS X 10.7.3.  and indicating ROM Revision 3011.  When I try to run this update, it fails saying I need OS X 10.6.  Do I need the update (I presume yes since my ROM rev is lower), if so how can I install it?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Mac Pro :: Graphics Card Compatibility For Windows/Linux?

Oct 23, 2010

I'm currently looking to buy a new graphics card for my 2006 Mac Pro. I'm not going to be using OSX at all on the computer, only Windows/Linux, so I'm wondering what PC graphics cards I can use on if OSX drivers aren't an issue?

I've done a search and found a fair few answers, most of which have been more than a little contradictory and have got me somewhat confused. So any clear answer as to what's what on this would be much appreciated.

As a quick aside, just to explain why I'm doing this, in case anyone can think of a better idea, the situation is thus:

I work in VFX, primarily using Houdini. The main reasons to switch to Linux/Windows were OSX's lack of support for OpenGL 3 and 4 and the overpricing and unavailability of the new Ati 5870. Also Houdini is just that much snappier on Linux. So this mac pro is becoming a render/work box and I'm going to replace it for everyday stuff with a mac mini.

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp Assistant Cannot Be Used/update Firmware

May 9, 2007

"Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used: You must update your computer's boot ROM firmware before using this setup assistant"."

That's the dreaded message I get every time I try to use boot camp 1.2. Unfortunately my firmware is already updated, and any attempt at updating my firmware (again) results in the message that I "don't have to update my firmware."

I've google'd this problem numerous times, but I have yet to find a solution.

Windows On Mac :: Did The Firmware Update Completely Resolve The Fragmentation

Jun 11, 2009

I am thinking about purchasing a X25-M SSD for a 13" MBP once prices drop (hopefully by the end of the year) but also want to run Windows. Multiple sources have stated that it is an amazing drive but that you cannot install/run Windows using Boot Camp. Most of these articles/posts are dated early 2009 however.

I'm curious, did the April firmware release solve this problem or did it only address the fragmentation issue causing massive slow downs? If not, can someone explain to me why it is that Boot Camp is compatible? Is it the expectation that the new Intel SSDs scheduled to be released later this year will resolve this problem if it is not already corrected? Also, for those of you who actually have one of these, did the firmware update completely resolve the fragmentation issue?

IMac :: Unable To Update Firmware?

Jan 5, 2010

When given a video card update (esp from using windows) it almost always improves the video card. Apple releases the flicker fix update and I don't have a flicker issue. No screen issues at all really.

I feel like it's Russian roulette. Update or not? I know some people will say don't fix what ain't broke, but what exactly is IN the fix? Is it exclusively for the flicker issue or does it update/upgrade other aspects on the card? Mine has the ATI card in it.

IMac :: Bluetooth Firmware Update - Mouse / Keyboard Fix

Jun 17, 2009

I know this affects iMac users than any other product so I thought it would be worth mentioning that Apple has released a Bluetooth firmware update found in Software Update: This update provides bug fixes and better compatibility with the Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse and Apple Wireless Keyboard. It installs on all Macintosh systems with Bluetooth based on the Broadcom chipset. Those who are having trouble, download and note any improvements for others who are having the same problem.

MacBook Pro :: Firmware Update On It Ruins Connection With IMac?

Mar 12, 2012

After the firmware update yesterday, the finder on my MacBook Pro is no longer able to transfer files from my iMac to my MBP or vice versa. Most folders on my other mac are visible, but some crash the finder, transferring files gets part of them moved over, but then it stalls and crashes the finder.Seems like a serious bug. Or has the firmware update simply removed the file transfer possibility at all?Reinstalling Lion wasn't even possible as the recovery program stalled as well. It was not possible to choose a language.

MacBook Pro, iOS 5.0.1

Windows On Mac :: How To Update Graphics Driver

Sep 23, 2010

Im guessing that updating my graphics drivers via OSX dosen't do anything for the Windows side.

Do I run the apple software update in bootcamp? Or do I actually go to the nvidia site and download/install them?

Also, what is the best driver right now for gaming performance in Windows?

I know this is probably in the wrong section but the windows and gaming sections don't get much love.

IMac :: Popping Sound From Speakers Post Firmware Update

Feb 4, 2010

I was reluctant to update my 27inch i5 iMac with the new graphics card firmware update since I wasn't having any flickering issues. I finally caved in and did it thinking that nothing bad will happen, well of course something did. Ever since I updated it yesterday my computer makes a distinct and random popping sound from the speakers, it is soft but audible in my quiet room when I am working and it is driving me crazy.

PowerPC :: Can I Update Graphics Card In IMac G5?

Jun 12, 2009

My 3 yr old IMac G5 (no isight) seems to be real sluggish in graphics dept. I never used to have problems watching hulu videos, now they stutter. When I play warcraft, the game struggles to keep up if I'm in an area where there is lots of players. Would a new graphics card help? Is it replaceable on my IMac model?

OS X :: IMac Won't Boot After Recent SL Graphics Update

Aug 18, 2010

Im having my first ever problem with a Mac, bummer! I have tried Googling an answer, but didn't find anything specific enough for my situation.Last night I installed the SL Graphics Update, hoping to be able to run Starcraft 2 on a higher setting.

Anyways, I installed it, and now the computer wont boot. It is stuck on the gray screen with the spinning symbol. It appears to be installing the software update, since it shows a gray progress bar, but then once that finishes, it just stays on the gray screen with the spinning symbol and goes nowhere after that.

I have a Macbook Pro available to use, if I need to target the disk. Not sure how to do that though, just found that idea in my google search.

I have no problem just being able to grab my important data off of it, and starting on a fresh install. I just dont want to lose my huge library of pictures and music.

May 12, 2010

I have an 06/07 model 24" iMac - I believe it was the only one of that make that had an internal PCI express slot...currently with an nvidia 7600GT in it.

If I were to get dirty with some screwdrivers, would it be possible to upgrade my graphics card to something compatible with MacSteam? (Nvidia 8 series+)

OS X :: Cannot Install New Firmware Update

Dec 11, 2008

I get this error: "unexpected error occurred (0); unable to upgrade firmware". They refer me to this site: [URL]. I just bought this late 08 MBP and I have a bootcamp partition running Windows XP Pro 32Bit on a NTFS partition. Why is this so complicated? Macs have always been easy on me until this. They tell me to do a full reinstall but I don't understand how this will fix the problem since I don't know where this comes from. It says to go check my "Partition Map Scheme" and I have a "Master Boot Record". It says I need a "GUID_partition_scheme". How come I don't have a "GUID_partition_scheme"?

If so, were any tweaks needed to make it work?
