    I have a firmware update that showed up in software updates last night for my new iMac. I have the 27" iMac that was just released maxed out with a fusion drive. However, the firmware update says that it is for the iMac (late 2013) with flash-only storage. Of course mine is flash and regular since it's fusion.

    Has anyone seen this and ran it on a fusion drive iMac yet? It should be fine if it shows up, but just not sure about it d/t it stating "flash-only storage iMacs).

    Thanks!

    This came up for me last night even though I've got a standard drive iMac (late 2013).

    Didn't cause any problems for me.

    Same question/concern. I also have a fusion drive. I'm assuming it's fine, but I just wanted to double check.

    Just got my Fusion drive iMac yesterday - it worked alright on mine, although the initial boot screen made a strange whooshing noise on startup

    Yes, this is normal - it should have warned you about this before it installed the update in a little dialog box.

    That was the fans throttling up to full speed for a second or so. There was a 'warning' notice to let you know beforehand so nobody panicked :eek:

    Cool. Glad to hear that it does work with the fusion drive version.

    I'll probably run it this weekend when I'm not using the iMac for streaming and such.

    I ran it with no issues other than having to reenter the "code" for Office 11. It was fun to hear the fan, it is the only time I have heard it.
