New MacBook Air EFI update fixes problems with Boot Camp
Apple has issued a new EFI firmware update for the MacBook Air, v2.7. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295993==http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1689" rel='nofollow'>patch</a> is aimed explicitly at 2013-model Airs, and copes with a bug that caused black screens to appear when trying to install Windows 7 or 8 using Boot Camp Assistant. The problem was triggered if both an external optical drive and a USB stick were connected at the same time. Simultaneously, Apple has tweaked the firmware to ensure a Mac will boot into OS X by default after Windows 8 is installed.<br />
<br />
The update is the second directed at the Air in less than a month. An <A href="http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/10/01/smc.update.addresses.battery.bug/">October 1st SMC update</a> fixed an issue that caused some systems to suddenly freeze or shut down if they exceeded over 1,000 charge cycles.
