EFI upgrade for new iMacs

The new iMac, which went on sale yesterday by surprise, has received its first EFI update to fix black screen problems that can occur when you have a Boot Camp partition with Windows 7 or 8 installed and an external storage drive and a USB drive connected to your computer at the same time. Few have experienced these problems due to the rapid update.

Just yesterday, iMacs were updated, which do not change their appearance but renew some internal hardware components such as the processor, which becomes a Intel Haswell latest generation, the graphics card and SSD storage by PCIe , which replaces the obsolete SATA III and support for the new standard 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

It didn’t take long for the first firmware updates for this updated desktop computer to arrive, and Apple released an EFI update for these new computers today. The update is intended for iMac late 2013, i.e. those that were released yesterday.

This update fixes problems that some users might have when installing Windows 7 or Windows 8 using the Boot Camp wizard by having a USB storage drive and an external hard drive connected to the computer at the same time. In these cases you may see a black screen , which has been fixed by this update package.

The size of this one is not very big, only 8.7 MB and requires you to have OS X Mountain Lion version 10.8.4 or higher installed. Some of the new iMacs currently on sale will need to be upgraded to version 10.8.5 upon receipt, as they are shipped from the factory with lower versions.

The new iMac is now on sale from the Spanish Apple Store for 1,529 euros for the 21.5-inch model and 1,849 euros for the 27-inch model .
