I'd like to get to the EFI settings page on my MacBook Pro. I haven't been able to find the keyboard sequence required to boot into this this still an option on recent MacBook Pro's or do I need to boot from the OS CD to access EFI via a utility ?

Have you considered installing ReFIT? I didn't even think there was a way/reason to do so. Someone else will likely provide the real answer, but ReFIT may take care of your needs until then. I use it every day (that I use my computer), and it works great.

It's called rEFIt. – Daniel Beck Nov 24 '10 at 6:00
Thanks for the correction. – Everett Nov 24 '10 at 15:22
Great! Does this flash the EFI firmware or is it loaded from disk after POST ? – Scott Davies Nov 24 '10 at 21:57
I believe it's loaded from the disk, you can still access the original EFI from Apple, and remove rEFIt if you desire. – Everett Jul 23 '12 at 2:34
