    Not sure if this is supposed to happen, so I thought I'd ask.

    I recently just got the new MBP, late 2011. And I checked on software update and it was updating iTunes and EFFI. After it restarted, it made a weird noise before going to the traditional OS X start up sound, is this right? I'm a bit paranoid that it's somehow harmful. I've reinstalled Mac OS X Lion 3 times and still made that noise.

    You reinstalled three times? Is it making the noise every time you boot, not just once?

    Normally it does a "firmware update tone" but you should only hear that once.

    Yes, I only heard it once before the traditional Mac OS X boot up sound. It was like a abrupt beep noise. Just wanted to make sure because this is a brand new laptop, and thought that maybe it might have been defective somehow. Thanks for clarifying.

    Sometimes you just got to be careful I guess.

    I re-installed everything again just to make sure one more time, and there wasn't the update tone. Should I be even more worried now? :confused:

    Seriously, stop reinstalling Lion. You're doing more damage doing that. Nothing to worry about.

    Enjoy your laptop.
