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.
