    Just updated my MBP with the latest EFI update. Waited till it reseted and logged in. Once at the login screen after about 2 mins finder along with all other apps quits unexpectedly. I can't even send the report to apple. I can't even click on anything on the top screen. Any idea on a fix?

    I notice that everytime I reboot I have to reset my PRAM. Is that normal?

    No, try repairing your disk permissions in disk utility...One PRAM re-set should have done the trick.

    DU Permisssions repair and see how you go.

    Tried permission repair and disk repair via recovery boot. Still getting the problem report at login. What are my next options.

    I hate to tell you, but it's looking like a re-install of Lion, you can try the non-destructive option first, but back up everything.

    All about how, if you have a disk cloning app, use that first.

    Does it apply to early 2011 SL MBP?

    Software update tells me that EFI update (2.7 I think) is ready for download for my early 2011 MBP loaded with Snow Leopard (I'm a pro photog, Lion OS is therefore not an option);
    however some googling seems to indicate that this an update for Lion,
    not Snow Leopard.....?
    Any input would be appreciated.

    regards,
    JF

    i hate EFI updates. i just reinstalled via option restart. so far so good. i guess apples "software update" should be renamed to "install ONLY if needed".
