    ok you have the mac problem where i had the 1394 problem.presuming you have the file on cd disc,you need put disc into drive and restart pc,you then need to press f11 or whatever it is for your pc during startup to get to the boot options,then you select your dvd drive as the boot drive and then you should have the very black screen of dos.here you follow the instructions as per the file and its in here you type your mac address.with me it was a problem with invalid 1394 guid after i got a replacement bios chip for my asrock p67 extreme 6 but lucky for me that guy sent me the file with my 1394 id number with full instructions.im only presuming that for your mac problem the same instructions apply i.e enter dos via the file and type in your mac id and problem solved.you also might think that you are stuck in dos even though you have followed the instructions perfect,if that happens just shut down pc manually,thats what i had to do and upon restart no more hanging in post to press f1 to resume.hope any of this helps you.also my instructions said to use a cd not dvd disc.
