    Hi Guys,

    I've got a a problem with my Mid-2011 MacBook Air (4,2) I keep getting notifications from Software Update that my machine requires an EFI Firmware update.

    Every time I accept the install, the machine reboots and returns to the logon screen, I then get the Software Update notification once, I've logged in. Any ideas?! The machine is plugged in to power.

    Hiya,

    You could also try and download the updater from Apple : http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1623 and run it from there, rather than going through Software update.

    Good luck

    I had a problem yesterday with my MBPro indicating I needed a Boot ROM firmware update, but I was at the current firmware revision and the recommended update file would not install as it was not needed.

    Performing a "Reset PRAM" fixed the problem for me.

    Yeah tried SMC & PRAM with no luck! I'll give the alternate updater a go!

    Did you do the update with the MBA power cord plugged in. Or without it plugged in. Reason why I ask. Is one time I had enough power and did an update to my MBA and it kept asking me to download the update again and again. Even though it was updated. So I did it with the power cord plugged in and it worked and solved the issue.

    Yeah it's plugged in everytime :( No like with the manual updater either, it says it needs to reboot to finish installation then just boots up as normal and says I need the damn update again!
