Boot Camp Firmware Problem

in macOS edited January 2014
I just bought a new 2.16 GHz 15" MacBook Pro, and, against my better judgement, I'm trying to install Windows with Boot Camp. I have run the "MacBook Pro SMC Firmware Update" and it now says I'm up to date, but when I try to run the Boot Camp Assistant, I get a message that I need to update my computer's firmware first. Any ideas? I can send screenshots if need be.

    I think the SMC firmware update was for a cooling issue.

    The Bootcamp firmware update is this one:

    Thanks for the quick response. I did, however, figure that out on my own in the meantime. I wasn't expecting the MBP I bought Saturday to need the "early 2006" update, and I didn't realize that there were multiple updates that do different things. I'm used to the "Combined MacOS X Updates." Oh well, hopefully this will help someone else as well.
