    For what it’s worth, I also tried the latest version of SeaTools for DOS on my Late 2009 MacBook (6,1).

    Similar to SeaTools for Windows, the web site claims the latest version is 2.22, but the download link pulls down version 2.23. Unfortunately, like past versions, the main screen loads, but does not give me the ability to use the keyboard or trackpad. Rebooting with a USB keyboard and mouse have the same effect.

    Oddly enough, the Seagate Momentus XT firmware update (SD24) ran just fine in DOS boot disc mode. Why Seagate can update firmware via a DOS boot disc, but not get their flagship diagnostic tool to still work on Intel-based Mac models, is beyond me.

    Oh well, this probably saved me from writing another article on the matter.

    The current SeaTools now requires the cantankerous .NET Framework 4.0, too.

    I’ll stick with SeaTools which only required the .NET Framework 2.0.
