    I did the update and while restarting mine laptop failed with something i could not understand, so i restarted it now i hear is only beeps and nothing on the screen. Is there anyway to get it back i am going today to apple store and see if they could do something. Is it like i damaged mine logic board. Is it reparable I am getting too much nervous.


    Sorry for reposting from News Section. But i got no response from there. If its inappropriate Mods Please delete this thread.

    Someone stated that Apple has a downloadable file that you need to get and burn to CD, and boot from that CD to get your old Firmware rev. I don't know where it is, or if it works...but it's worth a shot...

    The solution provided above didn't worked out. I have a faulty logic board and the guy at apple store said it need to be replaced. so after 2 months mine macbook has a dead logic board and after that i will be using a REPAIRED macbook.

    Thanks APPLE that what i excepted from you money suckers...

    things happen, deal with it, if your engine in your car blew up after two months they arent going to give you a new car either, such is life, be glad it happened now and not a year from now when you are out of warranty..assuming you didnt buy applecare

    You either have very bad luck or you're doing something to your machines that you shouldn't be. But if you think only Apples occasionally malfunction, you'll be sorely mistaken.

    And after 25 days (in the example above), I think you could have gotten the machine repaired or replaced, eh?

    I have the same issue. I upgraded to EFI 1.2, and now my MacBook won't boot up. It did for awhile, and then I went to sleep it. When I tried to open it up again, it would not light up. My guess is that the contents that were open didn't save to RAM properly, but you never know.

    Here's a link to my post to the MacBook EFI 1.2 thread.

    Seriously though, why did a new thread have to be made when someone had already started one for this update?
