    So are you saying you've been to http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...eupdate11.html, grabbed the update on that page, and verified that it installed correctly but you're still getting an error?

    I did have this issue during the summer when trying to build an iMac for deployment ...

    I ended up rebuilding it from the restore discs, installing bootcamp (wait for the firmware error and then reinstall the update) and then patching it ... it seemed to be a lot happier this way.

    You might also want to ask over on the Apple BootCamp beta forum ... they helped me with some interesting features when I was playing with Vista on my Mac Mini.
