Keyboard update was "only" 19.4MB for me via the Software Update menu.

That's still incredibly huge for a keyboard software update! Shocked

You could always take it somewhere and accidentally drop it behind your tire and then back up over it. Laughing

I'm at work so I can't test this yet. Does the keyboard update allow the new keyboards to be recognized at boot time? I.E. Can you bring up the Bootcamp Menu by holding Option at startup?

I would assume that you installed the update. Does it work properly with Boot Camp? I'm interested in finding out.

I haven't been able to get it to work on boot. So, I can't boot from CD, Bootcamp... nothing. Sad Why did they release this update if they weren't going to fix the most important bug?

The specialty keys work properly now though... whoopedee dooo! I turn this feature off anyway since I'd rather not use the fn key to use the default F keys.

I love the feel of the keyboard... I just wish it would work like every other keyboard on the planet. I find it odd that the only problems I've ever had with keyboards on a Mac are Apple branded. My ultra old BenQ USB keyboard works perfectly fine on boot... my brand new Aluminum keyboard doesn't. Ugh.
