You can confirm the version of the Boot ROM installed on your computer using System Profiler.

Note: Print or write down these instructions before you begin the update.

To update the firmware on your Intel-based iMac:

  1. Quit all other open applications.
  2. Click Shut Down in the iMac EFI Firmware Update window and wait for your computer to shut down.
  3. Press and hold the power button on your iMac until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly, then release the power button to begin the update.

A status bar indicates the progress of the update.

Important: Do not interrupt the update.

Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the iMac EFI Firmware Update.

  1. Click OK, if the firmware is now up-to-date.
