    • Manufacturing mode is determined by the FD lock state and a 2nd factor which I don't recall at the moment (I think whether the firmware is PV or not). You don't have to use -closemnf if you build the SPI image with FD locked and Manufacturing bit set at Flash Image Tool. If you leave the FD unlocked, you can reflash the ME region via software solutions (FPT, flashrom, AFU etc). If you have other methods of bypassing the lock when needed (jumper, BIOS option, programmer etc) the you can leave it locked for better security.

      To downgrade try if there is an option in BIOS, otherwise use Acer's utility etc. I don't recommend anything else in case the EC also needs to update/downgrade. Try resetting BIOS settings. If these don't help, I suggest Acer support and hopefully they'll be helpful.

      SPS is given into two parts, Recovery and Operational. Flash Image Tool is required to build a full SPS region out of these two. I don't know how versions work (they are not linear like ME/TXE) but I could upload them temporarily if you want. But not now, remind me in a week if you're still interested.

      What ME firmware SKU does the system use? Download the latest BIOS from Gigabyte and input it at ME Analyzer. ME6 Ignition does not expose a MEI device to the OS. Reflash the latest BIOS from Gigabyte via the in-BIOS flasher/updater.

      @ itcollection:

      Leave the firmware as it is or restore back to your original ME dump in case you made changes for some reason. The procedure is the same: jumper on, fpt -me -f, fpt -greset, jumper off. When the jumper is on the ME is in recovery state and its firmware can be reflashed.

      @ itcollection & Kasm279:

      It seems that Optiplex 790 uses Intel Q65 PCH which does not support AMT. So you cannot enable it on that system.

      Thank you for the feedback kostar20071. Based on today's stuff, to me, seems like 11.7 is for Sunrise Point (SKL, 100-series), Union Point (KBL, 200-series) and Union Point Refresh (KBL-R, Z370). So if I understand properly, these is another intermediate PCH (not just upgraded CPU generation) before Cannon Lake PCH (300-series).

      FPT does not crash. It is a command line utility so open a command prompt and use it that way. If the MEI does not appear as a device at Device Manager, the ME firmware region (part of the SPI chip which includes Flash Descriptor, GbE, ME and BIOS) needs to be reflashed. The (very detailed) guide can be found here.

    • plutomaniac has written a new post "Dell Optiplex 790 unlock AMT" 08.04.2017

      First, make sure you have the latest Dell BIOS applied which should update you to version 7.1.91.3272. You only need to dump, modify and reflash the ME region so attach your dump and I will upload the equivalent image with AMT enabled. The warning at MEA is fine, unneeded/extra padding is not harmful.

      @ tsalat:

      The SPI/"BIOS" chip has regions such as Flash Descriptor, ME and BIOS. At ME 3, a corrupt firmware won't cause problems booting the system, you can disable it by removing the primary RAM module etc so you can repair it. But yes, its firmware is located at the SPI chip you mentioned. The me_dell.bin ME region I attached is taken from Dell's M-020006 SPI image. But your problem is configuration related so you don't have to do the repair. As for the GPU sensor, I don't know what address needs to be placed there. Try to use the QST tools which can be found around the web. If these don't help, honestly the current trick you did with the CPU-only sensor seems like a perfectly acceptable workaround.

      @ tsalat:

      Thank you for using MEA and for reporting that firmware Tomas. The ME region is inside the SPI chip, alongside the BIOS (not within). Your system uses QST ME3 SKU so there is no AMT. Since you are able to dump your ME region, we can repair it in case of fan problems. You can take the ME region from Dell's SPI image (M-020006 from the MEA photo, I assume you need M-020006 and not M-010008 ?) and flash it with Flash Programming Tool. Use the DOS versions of the tools since the Windows ones are very old at this point and may not work properly at modern operating systems. The command is fprog -me -f me_dell.bin. Then, shutdown the system and remove all power (cord + battery, RTC is ok) for 1 minute. Now that the ME is reflashed, you can use FWUpdate tool to update to the latest ME3 QST firmware that I've found which is 3.2.3.1037 as seen at the first post.

      ME firmware 9.1 by itself, is fully compatible with 8-series systems. It was up to OEMs to update the BIOS to work with the newer ME. I'll re-enable Latest for 9.0 since people want it.

    • plutomaniac has written a new post "ME Analyzer: Intel Engine Firmware Analysis Tool" 07.30.2017

      Hey SoniX,

      MEA always reports "Not Updated" for 9.0 because it has been replaced by 9.1 firmware. In general, for 5MB there's 9.0.31.3488 and for 1.5MB it's the same old 9.0.31.1487.
