Firmware update failed for MacPro 2006 1.1
Upgraded my system with 2 Xeon X5365 processors and they just work fine. After that I used the firmware upgrade tool for going from 1,1 to 1,2. That did not work. Any suggesstions why that's the case?
Does it influence the performance in any way when the firmware is not updated?
Esta pergunta é pertinente?
I also failed at using the Mac Pro 2006-2007 Firmware Tool. I click on Upgrade firware, it creates a ram disc, copies stuff and finally tells me to shut down the machine, start up holding the power button until the power led flashes or I hear a sound... then the Apple logo apperas along with a progress bar, for just a glimpse, then disappears and the machine boots into the primary OS... no upgrade, no progress bar progressing.
The firmware after that is still the 1,1 firmware and not 2,1 as it should be.

I also installed 2 x Xeon 5365 processors on my Mac Pro 1,1. It has 32GB of RAM.
When I click on the Firmware tool I get an error 5530, when it's trying to created the RAM Disk. I can not find what this error code means.
I've gone to a few youtube videos which show successful upgrades...
Same problem...new 5365...Snow Leopard...32G RAM...error code 5530 thrown

It's you and me stickwithahit...seems like a dead thread but maybe we can get this going together.
This is driving me bat-$@$* crazy...are you running Lion on the Mac pro 1,1?
I think we have identical machines from a hardware standpoint.
I read somewhere that the update tool goes out on the web and downloads the EFI file from apple... apparently the link has changed so the tool won't work???
I downloaded the Mac Pro 1.2 EFI file directly...it's "supposed" to work if the .dmg file is on the desktop...no dice so far.

Ah, well that is useful information... I can't find anyone who knows exactly what the 5530 error means, and Apple won't support machines this old...
I just order a second board from a shop on eBay (it was $25), so I'll try flashing that one, and if it fails, we know it is the internet part which is failing...
I have seen a board from the same people which is already flashed to 2,1... it's $50...
I'm reluctant to spend that much on this machine....
If I can't flash the motherboard, I think I may gut it and install a Hackintosh in the case, but I'm not at that point yet ;)
