Apple MacBook EFI Firmware Update enables Lion Recovery from an Internet connection on MacBook (Mid 2010) models.

For more information about Lion Recovery, please visit this website: http://www.apple.com/macosx/recovery/

The MacBook EFI Firmware Update will update the EFI firmware on your notebook computer. Your computer's power cord must be connected and plugged into a working power source. When your MacBook restarts, a gray screen will appear with a status bar to indicate the progress of the update. It will take several minutes for the update to complete. Do not disturb or shut off the power on your MacBook more...

Requirements

Installed the firmware update and my drive still makes the same noise at startup, but not after coming out to sleep.

I also am still experiencing the drive sound at start-up, but is super quiet when waking from sleep. Otherwise, the process was smooth and as Apple described. After the obnoxious beep sound upon restart when applying the update and a black screen for many seconds, the heart rate returns to normal when the computer shows the friendly Apple logo.

Worked like a charm. You must load this first before the SMC update.

It is not noted in any of the documentation that this does not apply to a MACBOOK2,1. I have a macbook, 2 gig dual core and the update is not for it. This update is not for machook 2006 or early 2007; only from later 2007 and forward. it would be nice if this was documented.

After installing the firmware update, my USB ports are now extremely slow. Printing a color page takes 20 minutes... scanning fails... and my TV Mini HD device won't even start up.

I just applied this to my 2.16Ghz and it works fine after. Seems to be a tiny bit snappier.
