Apple releases iMac MXM, iDVD, iLife Support updates

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
As expected, Apple has released a software updated for owners of its white 24-inch iMacs to address a video issue that prevents Boot Camp from functioning properly. Meanwhile, the company also unleashed updates to iDVD and iLife Support.

iMac MXM Update 1.0

As was exclusively reported by AppleInsider earlier this month, Apple had been testing an update for its white 24-inch iMacs that aimed to solve a year-long problem that had prevented many users from running Boot Camp on their systems.

"Some iMac (Late 2006 24-inch) computers may display a black screen when booting from the Windows XP installer CD, instead of the standard blue installation screen," Apple explained in a support document posted Thursday alongside the software fix. "The computer will respond to the correct setup key presses and continue the installation even though the built-in display has no video."

Users experiencing this issue should download and install the iMac MXM Update 1.0 [403K], the company added.

iDVD 6.0.4

Meanwhile, Apple said iDVD 6.0.4 update [6.5MB] improves overall stability and supports compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5.

iLife Support 8.1.1

The iDVD update was released alongside iLife Support 8.1.1 [6MB], which supports system software components shared by all iLife '08 applications, improves overall stability, addresses a number of other minor issues, and supports general compatibility issues.

Apple recommends the update for all users of iLife '08.

    I guess those 24 inch white iMacs don't have enough power to run Leopard- HAHA. Don't forget to buy that external hard drive to use all your Lepoard features! Can the Apple TV be used as the Leopard external hard drive? I'd like it to do something other than make grilled cheese sandwiches. Grrrrr.

    The update is for the 7600GT MXM graphics card module in the 24" iMacs, which incidentally is MORE powerful than the newer non-MXM iMacs.
