    I did a clean install of snow leopard and i wanted to install Windows 7 via boot camp but when I go to bootcamp utility i get a message

    "You must update your computer's Boot ROM firmware before using this setup assistant."

    Not sure what I need to update? I have a 2009 Mac Pro running SL.

    The Boot Camp utility is a convenience tool, but isn't strictly necessary.
    The partitioning it does, you can do in Disk Utility also. I would suggest
    trying that.

    As to the firmware message, I don't know. Maybe Apple are preparing a
    firmware update for your machine but it wasn't ready for Snow Leopard's
    launch. That's just a crazy guess :)
