はじめに

2009年のMac Proは、2010年のモデルと同じマザーボードを使用しています。 ファームウェアのアップデートでは、新しいCPUを使用することで、macOS 10.12および10.13にアップグレードすることができます。

インストールをする際にアップルの純正GPUがインストールされている必要があることに注意してください。購入したときにシステムにインストールされていた古いGT120を調べてください。

アップルのGPUアップグレードを選択した場合は、別のカードがインストールされている可能性があります。 これには、

•ATI Radeon 4870

•ATI Radeon 5770

•ATI Radeon 5870

以上のGPUが含まれます。Apple純正のものであれば、以上のGPUでもアップグレードを実行できます。

  1. MacPro4,1を公式にサポートしている最新のmacOSであるmacOS 10.11に、まずはアップグレードしておくと良いです。 10.6.6以降を使っていレバ、このリンクを経由してApp Storeからインストーラを入手できるはずです。 もし10.6.5以前ならば、最初にSoftware Updateを使ってSnow Leopard の最後のバージョン(10.6.8) にアップグレードする必要があります。その後、App Storeにアクセスします。

    • アップグレードを完了するには、2つの異なるパッケージをダウンロードする必要があります。

    • Mac Pro EFI ファームウェア・アップデート 1.5

    • ファームウェアアップグレードツール(英語)(最初の投稿の下部のリンクから.zip形式のファイルをダウンロードできます)

    Is there another place to download the tool? I can’t seem to connect to Netkas.

    d1nchiana@gmx.com - 返信

    you just need to have a card with the original EFI from Apple- there’s some other cards around, like the Radeon 4870 for example. It may work with newer “compatible” cards like those from Macvidcards.com, but I’m not sure.

    • 新しいファームウェアを実行するには、システムインテグリティ保護(SIP)を無効にする必要があります。

    • Mac Proを再起動し、cmd + Rキーを押してブートドライブのリカバリパーティションを起動します。

    • リカバリモードになったら、画面上部の[ユーティリティ]メニューに移動し、[ターミナル]をクリックします

    • 次のコマンドを入力します。

    • csrutil disable

    • キーボードのreturnキーをクリックしてMac Proを再起動してください。

    This step only pertains to OS El Capitan and later

    Hi Nick,

    Based on your hardware profile, you have the very first Mac Pro, which I believe can be flashed from a 1,1 to a 2,1 - but I have not done that process myself so I am afraid I can’t speak to how it works. I believe this forum thread (also on Netkas) may have the information you need.

    • Mac ProではもともとAppleのウェブサイトからファームウェアを直接インストールするように設計されていましたが、Appleのウェブサイト上のファームウェアの場所と名前が後に変更されたため、今ではツールを実行する前に.dmgファイルをダウンロードしてマウントする作業が必要になりました。

    • 手順1でダウンロードしたファームウェアファイルをダブルクリックして、ディスクイメージをデスクトップにマウントします。

    • 右クリックし、ファームウェアアップデートツールで「開く」を選択します。このツールは 適切な証明書で署名されていないため、macOSではダブルクリックするだけでは開けません。 ファイルを右クリックしてメニューから開き、この問題を回避します。

    • 開かれたソフトウェアには2010ファームウェアにアップグレード、もしくは2009ファームウェアにダウングレードする2つのオプションがあります。 インストールされているファームウェアによって、一度に1つのオプションしか使用できません。

    • マシンはもうAppleからの保証を受けられず、すべてのOSバージョンがソフトウェアダウンロードとして提供されているので、システムディスクはそれほど重要ではありません。よって2009年のファームウェアにダウングレードする理由はまったくありません。

    • 2010年のファームウェアにアップデートする場合は、CPUをアップグレードする必要はありません。元のシステム設定でも引き続き動作します。

    • ユーティリティが表示するすべての情報を必ず読んでください。

    • 作業が困難な場合は、この代用ツールで試してみてください。

    I just tried this on my 2009 Mac Pro. Everthing seems to go according to plan. The helper utility runs, does it’s thing, then tells me to shutdown. But when I hold the power button to start back up and actually run the firmware update…. nothing happens. That is, it boots normally, no updater. I’ve held the button till if flashes, I’ve held the button till I got the tone. But no matter what, it just boots normally. This machine is running 10.9 btw.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi John, I’m not entirely sure - there’s some good discussion in this macrumors thread that may be of assistance. Also feel free to ask a question in the answers forum here- you will likely get some good responses!

    Step 2 says to run the firmware tool, but in Step 1 there are TWO firmware tools to download. Which of these do I run?? If both, which one goes first?

    david - 返信

    Hi David,

    In the first step there is a tool for installing the firmware and the firmware itself- if you download just the .dmg on your 4,1 machine, it will refuse to install. You need the .app from Netkas, which is the second link. Download both, open the disk image from Apple, run the tool from the second download and it should auto detect the package on the desktop. Then it’s off to the races!

once installed the firmware 5.1 can be updated in the installation of the new OS?

infoalessio100 - 返信

Do you mean to update to 10.13? Yes, you can do that firmware update as well. It should work automatically.

Josh Calvetti -

Can you use a processor tray designed for a 2010-2012 model after the firmware update? Not inclined to actually replace the CPU chips.

BradMacPro - 返信

I’ve heard conflicting reports- at the very least, if it does boot with a 2010 tray, my understanding is the fans will go crazy. I don’t think it’s recommended to swap trays between versions as they have a slightly different firmware and construction. Replacing the chips is pretty easy though, and we have a guide for that as well!

Josh Calvetti -

What restrictions are there if you no longer have an original Apple GPU? My MacPro has an ATI Radeon HD 4870 512 MB to drive my 30” Apple monitor.

Ronald Koontz - 返信

We’re in a similar boat: I’ve got a Radeon HD 5770, purchased from Apple, driving a 30-inch Cinema Display. I got through both BIOS upgrades fine. Perhaps display adapters with non-Apple firmware cause problems.

Tom Yager -

A quick note that might save someone trouble: Following these well-crafted instructions, my Mac Pro kept booting to my OS (10.11) instead of the firmware updater. Starting over from a Lion (10.7) startup partition worked, and then I was able to return to 10.11 to do an in-place upgrade to High Sierra from the App Store. The second firmware update from the OS installer ran without issue.

Tom Yager -

Hi Ron, thanks for the info! You should still be okay with upgrading if your GPU is one of the upgrade picks Apple offered. I have amended the introduction to reflect this as well.

If memory serves, there were 3 other GPUs Apple offered as upgrades for the 09/10 model Mac Pro. These are the

• ATI Radeon 4870

• Radeon 5770

• Radeon 5870

Provided they’re all still official Apple cards, you should be okay to proceed.

Josh Calvetti -

It is safe to upgrade my MacPro4,1 with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680? Thanks.

suzzz -

You have a 4870 that doesn't have the Apple EFI? If it is a reference model card, it can be pretty easily flashed with Mac EFI (Apple boot screen). I have flashed these for 4 of my friends with good success.

Benjamin Dittman -

It is because if you have a non mac gpu as your primary card none of the mac os startup screen will be displayed. You would have no idea what the mac was doing while the firmware was installing (if it even was) and just have to sit looking at a black screen and hope that it completed correctly.

Is it safe to swap back in a non-Apple GPU once FW update is complete?

anonymous 5344 - 返信

Yep, you can swap back to the non-Apple GPU after the update is complete.

Hi Kenneth,

Sounds like that’s Gatekeeper at work. If you right click on the application and click open in that menu, it should give you an option to proceed when that dialog box pops up.

Thank you so much for this amazing guide. Followed it exactly and had no problems upgrading the firmware of my Mac Pro 4,1 to 5,1. Now I can happily update my OS past El Capitan 10.11….

i am having problems doing this my Mac is a 4,1 and when i download to update tool and software to do the update i keep getting an error saying the software is not compatable or something like that i followed everything and it don’t work for me here is the specs on my mac early 2009

Processor 2x2.26 GHZ Quad-Core intel Xenon Serial Number is H0014TB4PD any help would be great thanks

Shiva Parasram - 返信

I completed the firmware upgrade successfully. Then installed High Sierra successfully. Now my AirPort card is not recognized!

I had installed a AP card I had laying around from another Mac laptop (I think) that I had scrapped. So, I think that since the High Sierra software is assuming that this is a 2010 Mac Pro that it would also only have the AP card that came with the 2010 models.

My theory is that it will need a newer AP card than what I have. I’m honestly not sure what year my current AP card is from. Is anyone else having this problem or figured out a solution. If not, I will probably try ordering a newer AP card to stick in it or run an ethernet cable to it.

So I’ve already updated my early 2009 Mac Pro running El Capitan to Mojave using a patch tool before I found this site and instructions. Put a new videocard in and – with the exception of not being able to use my second monitor for some reason (next fix to search) – is running beautifully. Curious if I would still be able to update the firmware to 5, 1 from 4, 1 even though Mojave is already installed and running? Wish I had found this earlier - would have saved time! Thank you in advance for your response.

Stu - 返信

Hi @stu,

Hmm, I assume that’s dosdude’s patch tool? I’m not entirely sure though, I haven’t heard of anyone going to Mojave without flashing first. I’m not 100% sure if you can flash, but you should be able to in theory at least. The tricky bit is you’ll need the original GPU still installed to do the flash.

What firmware is your mac on at present? You can find it in System Information under the hardware overview- it’s labeled Boot ROM Version.

Josh Calvetti - 返信

Hi Josh! It was dosdude’s patch tool that was used to install Mojave without flashing. Everything is running smoothly since installing a new video card - Radeon RX 570 - and even figured out the issue as to why the monitors were not working when using a displayport cable. Exactly what I was thinking, that in theory it should work and there’s no reason it should not but I have not found anyone who has attempted this.

I still have my original GPU which was an upgrade via Apple. It’s an ATI Radeon HD 4870. Trying to do as much research as possible before contemplating the firmware upgrade. I use this computer quite a bit for work so don’t want to end up with a very large cheese grater that does nothing.

My Boot ROM version is MP41.0081.B07. Thanks for responding and any insight/advice is welcome and much appreciated! Happy Friday!

A couple years ago I bought what I thought was a 2012 5,1 machine, but it’s apparently a flashed 2009 model (About this Mac says mid 2009, and system information lists the Model Identifier as MacPro5,1, Boot ROM MP51.007F.B03). The machine will not upgrade past OS 10.10, or at least the App Store won’t serve me the upgrade files). I’m wondering if there’s any benefit to trying this procedure. Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Scot Reynolds - 返信

I’m having an issue that I don’t see mentioned. I have an ‘09 I’ve tried this process several times and it doesn’t seems to want to work. I downloaded the EFI update and the firmware tool. I have followed all the instructions every time but I still have a 4,1 computer. I get to the restart after the blinking power light and tone. It seems like the grey screen flashes for just a second but then stops then restarts and when the computer is back on fully it’s still a 4,1. Anyone have an ideas?

Tyler Hoover - 返信

Okay so I got no answers but I ended up figuring out myself. I realized that my computer needed the 1.4 EFI update before it could get the 1.5 EFI update provided here for the tool to work and everything to switch over to the 5,1

Tyler Hoover -

I’ve upgraded. Few important things.

1) It must be latest EFI 1.4 on Mac Pro 4.1. Was 1.3. Have to upgrade first.

2) Literaly no cards (PCI) and devices other than Apple common. USB 3.0 card from Unitek forced upgrade to fail. Unmounted, no problem.

3) After procedure have to reset PRAM (cmd+alt+P+R on restart). Without this 1333 MHz RAM modules are recognized as 1066 MHz

hi there please guys a little help here. i have that mac pro 2009 with original graphics card and every thing running os x 10.6.0 (snow leopard)

i have tried almost all the youtube tutorials on how to upgrade and flash firmware 4.1 to 5.1 but so far its been impossible.

one thing i have not been able to do on this mac is disable ISP, i have tried all the commands that may take me to the utility boot up screen by pressing command R and other combinations but nothing.

Then i heard a guy on YT that says before os x el capitan you dont need to do this, but i have a feeling he is wrong. still tried that way but nothing.

other guy said the command R combination on 10.6.0 is differerent back then if you want to get into the utility window up on boot up!, but could not fine a command combination before 10.6.0 to bring the utility window.

PLEASE I NEED TO DISABLE ISP BUT CANT HELPPPPP!!!!!!! .

I WILL really appreciate any help or ideas guys thank you very much. from London

Frank - 返信

Hi Frank,

The guy on YouTube is correct, System Integrity Protection (SIP) was a feature introduced in 2015 with El Capitan (v 10.11). I don’t remember exactly when the recovery partition came into existence, but I know that 10.6 definitely does not have it. What I would recommend is upgrading via Software Update to 10.6.8, and then once you have access the Mac App Store you should be able to get the last “supported” version of macOS, which would be El Capitan. [http://Get El Capitan|This link here] should let you download it from the Mac App Store.

Once you have El Capitan installed you should be able to follow the tutorial.

Josh Calvetti -

thank you #Josh Calvetti i will try your suggestion will try to download El capitan via software update ( i hOpe its still available for download , if not i will have to find it somewhere else ) and i guess once i install it, recovery partition will come into existence allowing me to disable ISP , fingers crossed cheers.

Frank -

Hi Josh

I’ve read that the firmware upgrade can’t be done in El Capitan, and that the os needs to be dropped to a previous version. Is that the case? If so , why is that?

Terry Lott - 返信

No, it can definitely be done in El Capitan - that’s how I’ve done it a few times now. You just have to disable SIP with El Capitan, but the directions for that are in the first few steps. Hope it helps!

Josh Calvetti -

hi terry, I have seen a guy on YT do the firmware upgrade on Yosemite beacuse he could not do it on El capitan he said and worked ( will pass u the link should i find it ) i guess you should give it a go and see what happends, you have nothing to lose. ( Am not saying Josh is wrong by any means )

Now I have hit another wall, if u guys can help me…. am upgrading to El capitan from snow leopard to disable ISP to then again upgrade to sierra o mojave but when am installing el capitan i get a message saying ( THIS INSTALL COPY OF EL CAPITAN CANT BE VERIFIED, IT MAY BE CORRUPTED OR TAMPARED WITH DURING DOWNLOAD) . I HAVE DOWNloaded El capitan from www.appledollars.com and did a bootable usb drive TO load from but keep getting that message! HELPPPPP

Frank -

hello guys : is it possible to clone my SSD running on el capitan on a macbook pro mid 2010 13 inch to install it on my 2009 mac pro 4,1 ??? the reason is that i would like to upgrade my graphics card , processor and ram???? instead of going hitting a wall every time i try to do it manually like in this tuttorial which i cant ( something always goes wrong and not able to install ) and then throw in the compatible components i have just mention thank you !!!!!

Frank - 返信

You should be able to clone that, yeah. I’ve done it going the opposite way before with no real issues.
