    I have a macbook 2.4 alu (Late 2008) and Installed linux as soon as I got it.(I just like the cases). Anyway I know that you need to use apple update in osx to update the firmware.

    I can't dual boot because my HD is MBR.

    I thought of 2 ways.
    A. Install OSX onto a usb device (Cost 30-40 bucks for usb)
    B. Take to apple store, Maybe they can do it.

    I can't dual boot because my HD is MBR.

    I heard the new firmware updates stop alot of issues.

    Why not install osx to an external USB hard drive and then do the update?

    Not sure if apple with update firmware if there is no osx on the machine.
