I have a first generation Macbook Air running Lion, and just ran software update to get the latest version of iTunes.  It appears I may have gotten a firmware update mixed in the bunch, and now it keeps trying to run the update at boot, failing, and shutting down.

 

I can start the restore partition, and the system appears to function, but I cannot figure out how to abort this failing update so I can use my system, and determine which update is breaking it and why. I've tried resetting the firmware, but that didn't change anything.

 

There's nothing, not even a the CD drive plugged into the Air, so it's not a peripheral problem.

 

I could restore from backups, but that seems like a very brute force way to get rid of a firmware update loader.

 

Does anyone know how to disable these little beasts?
