Apple releases Mac Pro firmware update

Apple on Thursday released a pair of firmware updates for the most recent version of its Mac Pro desktop machine, which include fixes for a few bugs.

The Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.5 is recommended for all users of the Mac Pro (Mid 2010); it includes two bug fixes, one that resolves an issue preventing the firmware password prompt from being displayed, and the other that smooths out incidents where the Boot Picker doesn’t show up if the machine is on a Ethernet network without DHCP. The update is a 1.96MB file that requires Mac OS X 10.6.4.

In addition, Apple also released the 22.5MB Firmware Restoration CD 1.9, which allows users to restore the firmware on the mid 2010 Mac Pro.
