    Default Mac Pro 1.1 64 bit EFI

    Has anyone successfully upgraded a Mac Pro 1.1 to a 64 bit kernel? Seems like it would be a simple firmware update, but I want to ask the experts. It may of course be much more to it. I have an idea that my expensive computer will be outdated in the next couple of years meaning no new OS's past OS v10.7. I have already updated my Mac Pro with Xeon E5345's.

    as long as you have snow leopard and an intel processor its as simple as restarting and and holding down the 6 and the 4 key on your keyboard. Im running the 64-bit on my 2008 Mac Pro 8-core. After you restart you can check and make sure you're running it by going to system profiler, then clicking on the sidebar that says software and it should say 64-bit yes or no. Or you can always google K64 enabler.

    Hope this helped.

    Not so fast... at the moment it is not possible to boot k64 on a mp1,1. As the OP stated it's missing EFI64. Hopefully someday.
