You linked general download page, I opened BIOS section and older BIOS was on top, I didn't notice that until today when you mentioned.
Then I looked and latest BIOS version is in the middle of the four versions shown, this is not normal for any manufacturer to do, so I am sorry for their mistake and that I didn't notice.

Now, please read what I edited into my post above at the end. Thank you for your attached files, I will check. I checked, and this is the problem, why we asked for these tests and files first, not last.
You cannot write to the ME section (Via FPT), your FD is locked and writing to ME is locked for anything other than ME FW Update tool, only if and when your ME Is not corrupted.
You may be able to fix with the files I posted above from that older HP BIOS, if not you may need to order a programmer as described below.

If the above ME flash fails from post #28, please try this edited BIOS from your SPI dump with ME reflash enabled. Flash this with AFU using these flags
So >>> AFU or AFUDOS spiM.bin /p /b /n /r /k
https://www.sendspace.com/file/1w5vio

This may not help, since the ME Re-flash option is usually invoked during a normal BIOS flash procedure, not with tools like this, but I think the /K will get it since that is in the default batch file for this BIOS and it's an updated ME from HP in this BIOS.
And I suggest you do not use AFU windows GUI, I opened this BIOS in latest version and it says BIOS does not support ME blocks - so as I mentioned, you may only be able to fix this with the file I posted in #28 or a flash programmer and SOIC8 cable.

Please slow down trying to rush through updating a BIOS on a working system, you may need to order tools now to fix your BIOS. You will need CH341A flash programmer and SOIC8 test clip jumper cable.

*Edit -
As for your post in #30 on page two, see sentence right above! I did not show you that command, nor is there a ME811471.bin file (If you extracted ME from BIOS and renamed, that is ALL WRONG) As I said right above, SLOW DOWN!!

Please try what I posted in post #28, exactly as I wrote it, using those files. If that fails, your ME is corrupted and you can only fix this with flash programmer and cable.
BIOS updating is not something to rush through, especially when you want to flash a modified BIOS eventually, and even more-so when flashing of ME is involved. ME flash can go bad when BIOS flash didn't, and take down the whole system (non bootable), so you're lucky it's only corrupted.

Order a flash programmer and cable from ebay and wait for delivery, they are only $3 for programmer and $2.xx for the cable

SOLVED !!!!!!

i see that:

i setting now FDO jumper ON and ME engine now work !!!!

i see in ME repository firmware update, the latest version of my ME fw is Intel ME Firmware v8.1.70.1590 (1.5MB), can i update to this version?

tnx

Great you got that figured out. Yes, you can update to new ME, but best to do settings transfer via this guide, before using any file to update with - [Guide] Clean Dumped Intel Engine (CS)ME/(CS)TXE Regions with Data Initialization

#35 RE: HP Pro 3520 AIO bios update by lazzaronetu 17.08.2018 12:53

I need to refer a D1 section?

i see clenaing data section for use in another oem model or machine, but i need to use in this pc, i can only update fw with FWUpdLcl.exe -F newfirmware.BIN -allowsv ??? I'm not sure how to insert the new firmware into a spi image and in any case if the ME region can also be written with fpt in my case ????

#36 RE: HP Pro 3520 AIO bios update by Lost_N_BIOS 18.08.2018 09:52

D1 is ME 2-10 version section, so yes that is the correct section. Make sure you use the 1.5MB version ME file. I know you need to use this ME in your PC, but you are downloading RGN Stock file to insert into your system correct?
If yes, then it needs settings transferred from your BIOS/ME to the clean ME via the guide, just follow it step by step and keep in mind you are working on a ME region and not a SPI/BIOS file, there are some specific steps when working with ME region only files.

FWUpdLcl does not need ME in SPI image. And yes, you can write to me with FWUpdLcl since your ME is on healthy state right now.

Run this command once you have settings transferred to your new ME (Change outimage name to newfirmware.bin)
FWUpdLcl.exe -F newfirmware.BIN

If you are unsure about anything, don't run the above command! If you need me to I can send you settings transferred ME update file to use

HI,

Thank you for your reply and your time spend for me. I have work on SPI bios image and obtain a outimage firmware, but i see your reply and i need to work on ME Region only and not on SPI image. I attach my actual SPI image dump, you can work on this?

Try this please.



This is a complete SPI image, i need to send only a ME update with FWUpdLcl, i think not is possible to use this image???

You can simply take the ME firmware from the repository package on this forum, then use the relative FWUpdLcl command tool.

ok thank's !!!

I can use your modbios.bin file to load on other same machine HP Pro 3520??? i have two of this !

Only other question (maybe stupid), can add or unlock raid function adding a BIOS orom or driver, my actual hardware can support this?

Dear
I'm very sorry to bore you with this request but I saw that you are definitely more experienced than the HP technical staff and I need your help if possible:

on my HP AIO 3520 there is a bios issue (error during flash update), now the pc doesn't start and it beeps 8 times, blank screen, nothing to do also resetting jumper on mainboard, remove cmos battery ecc...
I need your help to find the correct procedure to create an usb recovery disk to flash the bios. I read the procedure on the hp support website but it is not accurate for my device (I mean, the bios file for my device that you can download from product support page, it does not contain the procedure to create an usb recovery disk but it starts immediately to flash the bios, so it does not work). But, maybe, there is way to create an usb disk with another bios file then to replace the image of the bios with the correct one for my device?

Thanks
