    Just a quick silly question.

    iMac EFI Firmware Update popped up on the software update and I have now completed the update.

    It is okay to delete the iMac EFI Firmware Update from the Application Folder once you have updated the iMac?

    Also, if I have the Airport & Ethernet cable connected to my router, will my iMac use the Ethernet connection as default?

    Thanks

    Tee

    Yes its fine to delete that file, the firmware itself has already been flashed and is in no way reliant on it being stored on the hard drive.

    Not too sure about your other question, but I would probably just keep the airport status visible in the menu bar using the 'Turn Airport Off' whenever connected to ethernet.

    Thanks Jozone, will delete update file.

    Thats pretty much what I do with the Airport anyway, pointless using computer resources when i'm connected with ethernet :) was just curious thats all

    I've asked the same question in another thread in this forum and yes it is normal since they not only fixed stuff related to the ATI4850 :)

    I have the GT130 and I installed the fix .. everything went well.

    There were no issues to fix with the GT120 and GT130, but the firmware update was to fix things other than the 4850 freezing issue. I applied it with no problems.
