Late today, Apple released an EFI update for their 2010 iMac, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models that adds Lion Internet Recovery to the devices. More specifically, Apple has enabled Lion Recovery over the Internet on the mid-2010 iMac, late 2010 MacBook Air, and the early 2010 MacBook Pro. If you have one of these models, then it is recommended that you check Software Update and download the EFI update as soon as possible. If you prefer to download the updates directly, then you can find them in the links after the break.
Apple first released the Lion Internet Recovery software with OS X Lion last summer as an alternate means for a user to restore the original software onto his computer in the event of a crash or data corruption. The software allows users to re-download Lion straight from Apple’s servers as an alternative to the USB flash drive since there are no recovery disks included with Macs released after Lion.
