With three other software updates
out the door today already, you could have forgiven Apple for not providing a fourth. However, Apple has also released an updated Firmware Restoration CD (version 1.6) for for a number of Mac models:
- Xserve (Early 2008)
- MacBook (13-inch Late 2007)
- iMac (20-inch Mid 2007)
- iMac (24-inch Mid 2007)
The Firmware Restoration CD is used to bring the firmware on an Intel-based Macintosh back to factory condition in case of an emergency (such as an interrupted firmware install). Apple makes a note that you cannot use this CD to restore the firmware that has already been successfully applied to your system; this is used only for systems that did not successfully get a firmware update applied.
You can download the Firmware Restoration CD from the Apple Support downloads website
for your specific Mac. These CDs are great to keep around in case of firmware install issues (especially if you only have one Mac).Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
