MacBook Pro :: EFI Firmware 2.6 Won't Install

Jun 21, 2012

I have had a problem with this EFI frimware 2.6 update, that does not seem to want to be updated.Is there a problem with my MBP or what do i need to do to be able to complete the update and get rid of it. everytime i click on software updates, i see this update still there even though i installed it many times, however, its still there. This could only mean one thing either it did not install or there is an error with the software update reporting that its still not updated.

MacBook Pro :: EFI Firmware Update 2.8 Does Not Install

Apr 1, 2012

MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.8 does not install. I was prompted several times to install and restart (MacBook Pro late 2008) and authorised it each time. In every case, the update was proposed again when Software Update checked. I have OS Lion latest version installed. What to do about this bug?

MacBook :: Install An Open Firmware Password On 10.6.8?

May 3, 2012

I tried to download the lastes version of open firmware, but it is incompatible with the version of my computer. Don't tell me to use a disk I got with my computer, that would be for a Macbook Pro, not a Macbook, which is what I have. Please tell me if you can find a link to a firmware password program for Mac OSX 10.6.8, or if you have another way of installing a firmware password.

MacBook :: Apple Firmware Updates Integrated With OS Install?

Sep 6, 2009

I have a late 2008 aluminium macbook, recently "clean" installed snow leopard, everything cool apart from the recurring issue with adobe acrobat pro 9 64bit pdf printer driver, anyway. How do I know whether or not I have the apple firmware updates from this site [URL]. Is there any way of checking or have they just be integrated with the snow leopard install. Also is it still ok the drive makes a noise when you either turn the macbook on and / or when the macbook comes out of sleep. Apple fixed this with a firmware update for the imac and etc, has there been one for the Macbook?

Feb 8, 2010

I'm nervous to install the Firmware update 1.3. As I've heard from a lot of people the update has crashed their mac. I know it has to do with the fans and temp. My Mac book pro is running at 135 F at 2000rpm is this ok? Is it too overheated. Should I install the firmware I'm so nervous to install it just in case it breaks. Here's the rest of my specs...

MacBook Pro :: Install Firmware Update Prior To Or After Clean Installing Os X Lion?

Jul 5, 2012

Just bought a new SSD I plan to swap into my MacBook pro (mid 2010 6.2). I plan on clean installing osx Lion and thought I would try to make the installation go as smoothly as possible by updatingthe firmware, if needed, on both the new drive and the MacBook pro.

-Model: MacBook Pro 6,2 (mid 2010) - 15" i5 2.4ghz

-Current Boot ROM: MBP61.0057.B0C

I'm wondering if I need to wait until os x Lion is installed before I install this update? Perhaps it will automatically via "software update" after Lion is installed. It looks like the fix is pertains to osx Lion functionality, so maybe it would've already been downloaded via software update if Lion was installed as opposed to snow leopard which is what I have currently.The article says " If you are unsure whether your computer needs a particular update, simply download and open the update installer. The installer will alert you if the firmware update is already installed or not needed." Which update installer are they referring to and where can I get it? I thought it'd be better to update the firmware prior to installing the os, but maybe that's just an old habit I picked upnwhile using windows.

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"?

I have a Power MAC G5 that "has" Tiger 10.4.2 on it. The problem is that it wont boot past "login window starting". So I decided to buy Leopard. Problem is that it keeps kicking the DVD out during the "c" boot. Now I am told the system might need a firmware update for the DVD player.
"Apple Superdrive Firmware Update 2.1". Heres my problem: I cant boot into Tiger. I get stuck at the login screen. So I want to know if there is a way to do a firmware update in "Single user mode".

MacBook Pro :: SSD Firmware And OCZ Vertex 2

Sep 19, 2010

SSD bandwagon, and have a question. I bought a 2.5" Vertex 2 60GB, which seems to be doing very well in all the benchmarks. I know OSX has no TRIMM support yet, and there is a lot of rumbling about using the right firmware in order to increase the SSD's lifespan. I read I'll probably have to use Windows in order to update the firmware in OCZ SSD's. Can anyone tell me, how I can check the firmware version of the SSD using OSX ? Can it be done, or do you need Windows for this as well ?? I have no idea what firmware it runs, so there is no way to know if it needs updating.

MacBook Pro :: Installing EFI Firmware Update 1.7?

Jun 22, 2009

After the update, my MacBook Pro is extermely sluggish. Prior to the update, I was zipping along like most happy MacBook Pro owners. After the update, I constantly see the dreaded beach ball when doing almost anything with the laptop, Safari pages take longer to load, etc.

It's almost as if the udpate had the opposite effect and actually throttled down my WD 500GB HDD performance to a large degree.

Like I said, prior to the update all was good. I've been searching to see if there is a way to revert back to the previous firmware to validate that the update caused the problem but I haven't been successfull in finding anything yet.

OS X :: Macbook Won't Boot Into Open Firmware?

Sep 8, 2009

So, I'm still having trouble with the MacBook I posted about here. It kernel panics even more frequently now, a month later, about once every 30 minutes. I'm running 10.5.8 now (no Snow Leopard for me!).

Anyway, the problem I'm posting about is that I can't boot into Open Firmware. It works fine just booting straight through to OS X (except about a third of the time I start up it kernel panics right after the Apple logo appears) but it won't boot into Open Firmware. I hold down Command-Option-O-F to no avail and it just won't go. (I'm trying to do reset-all to see if that helps any.)

I tried booting into Open Firmware successfully on my other Mac so it's nothing I'm doing, this MacBook obviously has some serious issues.

I'd rather not have to take this computer to the Apple Store again - every time I do they just reinstall the system/replace the hard drive and don't take me seriously when I say the problem is not with software. (Plus the warranty on this machine is up now and I'm trying to avoid paying hundreds of dollars!)

Anyone know what the issue could be? i really need a new computer hahaha...

Oh! I also tried booting into Open Firmware by holding down the power button continuously as suggested here... the on/off light blinked 3-4 times, the computer made a really long beep (like I was trying to do a firmware update), then started as normally. So I don't think that worked either lol.

MacBook Pro :: How To Roll Back To 1.7 EFI Firmware

Dec 18, 2009

I just updated my late 2008 Macbook Pro to EFI Firmware v1.8, and am finding that suddenly my Firewire audio interface can't play a single thing without crackling, even in simple programs like Media Player, on my Boot Camp partition.

Using firmware version 1.7, everything was just fine. How does one roll back to an earlier firmware version? Does it have to be done by an Apple Tech?
