    Hi-
    I received the following message when trying to access BootCamp Assistant on a late 2011 Macbook Pro:

    Boot Camp Assistant cannot be used.

    You must update your computer's Boot ROM firmware before using this setup assistant.


    I seem to have the correct version according to Apple Support page, and I tried applying the update and it wouldn't do it.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1499
    Boot ROM or SMC Version Information: MBP81.0047.27
    (note: there is a "B" in my version number: MBP81.0047.B27)


    My system info says:

    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro8,2
    Processor Name: Intel Core i7
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 4
    L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
    L3 Cache: 6 MB
    Memory: 16 GB
    Boot ROM Version: MBP81.0047.B27
    SMC Version (system): 1.69f3



    I do have a SSD installed in place of the HD, but BootCamp Assistant has worked OK up to now.

    Any ideas what to do next?

    Never mind ... I was able to correct the error by resetting the PRAM. :)
