Apple firmware updates
Apple today posted new firmware for its previously released Intel-based Macs, including the iMac Core Duo, Mac mini, and MacBook Pro. Apple says the SMC Firmware Update addresses intermittent boot issues. It is available for the iMac Core Duo (1MB), MacBook Pro (1MB), and Mac Mini (1MB). Apple says that SMC firmware update starts automatically, while a status bar indicates the progress of the update. "During the update your computer fans will run at full speed, but will return to normal once the update completes. Important: Do not interrupt the update. Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the MacBook Pro SMC Firmware Update."
