Why Can't I upgrade my 2010 MacBook Pro to 16gb?
I have a mid 2010 13” MacBook Pro. 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, running High Sierra 10.13.6.
- Boot Rom 126.96.36.199.0
- SMC 1.62f7
I recently purchased a RAM upgrade 8 GB x2 SO-DIMMs to get to 16 GB (1066 MHz).
But when I install them my Mac won’t start up. If I use the stock 2 GB memory it starts just fine.
I have tried every combination of sticks and slots, but it will only work at the max of 10 GB. Please help.
Model Identifier is MacBookPro7,1 the other numbers are in the original post.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?

Curious if you got anywhere with this. I have basically the same issues (Boot ROM 188.8.131.52.0 is the only difference), and I would love to figure out how to get the EFI update to work.
2x4GB DIMMs have worked fine for years. 2x8GB doesn’t. I may try to mix and see if I can get to 12GB.
12GB worked, but I could never get 2x8GB working. I bought chips from a different vendor and those worked perfectly. *shrug*
+1 to Steve. See comment on guide:
