Apple Releases Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.2

Apple has released the Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.2 via their Software Update utility and on the Web. According to the company, this update improves compatibility with the latest Apple memory kits on Mac mini computers. To complete the firmware update process, users should follow the instructions in the updater application (/Applications/Utilities/Mac mini EFI Firmware Update.app). The updater will launch automatically when the installation is complete. The Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.2 weighs in at 2.4MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later.

Apple also released the SuperDrive Firmware Update 3.0. This update should eliminate the noise made by the optical disk drive during system startup and wake from sleep on your Mac. It works with both the iMac EFI Firmware 1.4 and Mac mini EFI Firmware 1.2 updates. The SuperDrive Firmware Update 3.0 weighs in at 18.3MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later.

Update: These firmware updates are for the 2009 Mac minis. The SuperDrive Firmware Update 3.0 isn't required on all machines though. Please follow these steps to find out if your Mac mini requires this update and if the update is successfully installed:

  From the Apple menu in the upper-left menu bar, choose About This Mac.

  Click More Info, then select Serial-ATA in the Hardware section of System Profiler.

  Select the DVD entry, and inspect the Revision field in the window below.

  If you see Revision: 2AHF, your Mac mini needs this update. If the update has been successfully applied to a Mac mini computer, the field will be 2AH1.
