@ udixadjus:

AFAIK the Intel MEI driver v6.0.0.1179 is the latest for Intel 5-Series Chipset mainboards.
Maybe it will help, if you run the installer of the related Intel MEI driverpack, which is offered by Gigabyte for your board.

Stupid question: is ME firmware overwritten when flashing a new motherboard bios? AKA: do I have to reflash ME firmware after motherboard bios update? I assume no...
Thanks

AFAIK it depends on the flashing procedure. Look >here<.

Hi,
I hope not pollute your topic, yesterday I posted about on ME FW and its inclusion in a BIOS file. I insist on the fact that I have only tested it with many Gigabyte motherboards that minimize the risks thanks to Dual-BIOS :
About ME firmware
There will certainly improvements to be made, I hope this will move with the help of the community.

@ VirtualFred:

Thank you very much for the link to your very interesting and useful thread about the Intel ME Firmware at TweakTown Forums.

Not at all! I am very grateful for these additional informations regarding the "mysterious" Intel ME details.

Hi! If i have Clevo notebook W230ST and actually FW 9.0.xxx 1.5MB i should use the 9.0.30.1482 1.5MB or 9.5.15.1730 1.5MB?? Modder named "Prema" (http://biosmods.wordpress.com) said me that 9.5.xxxx is right for another SKU maybe server boards etc. but in this thread i see that 9.5.xxx is for mobile and 9.0.xxx for desktop... for servers etc is 5MB FW... i'm confused and i don't know anything...

There is a conversation with Prema: http://biosmods.wordpress.com/me/comment-page-5/#comments

Firmware Version 9.5.30.1482 (1.5Mo)(Intel Serie 8) on Station Drivers....

I'm a lttle bit confused as well, because your notebook has the Intel ME Firmware v9.0.
This is what I recommend to do:
1. Run the Intel MEInfo tool for ME v9 series and check the current ME Firmware version.
2. Depending on the result of the MEInfo tool you can update the ME Firmware either to v9.0.30.1482 1.5MB or to v9.5.15.1730 1.5MB by using the related ME Firmware Update tool.

You can check http://repo.palkeo.com/clevo-mirror/W230ST/ - in stock BIOS from few weeks ago:

BIOS B05.
1. System BIOS for W230ST.
2. Update VBIOS to 2177.
3. Update ME firmware to 9.0.13.1402.
4. Refer to text file readme.txt to update firmware.

I don't know... 9.5.30.xxx and 9.0.30.xxx anybody knows what's the different between both?? 9.0.30.xxx is correct for notebook also?? :D :D i'm very confused...

It's possible to damage my laptop after flash the newer ME firmware than in stock BIOS for ex. from 9.0.13.1402 to 9.0.30.1482 ??

P.S.
I wrote that we have updated version of 9.5.30.1482 (1.5Mo)(Intel Serie 8) on Station Drivers.... :) :)

Maybe Pacman knows the answer. Alternatively you may look into >this< thread.
AFAIK Intel ME9 and ME9.5 systems need a different ME Firmware from different version branches (v9.0 for Desktops, v9.5 for Mobile systems), but I am not able to verify it, because I don't have any Intel 8-Series chipset system (neither Desktop nor Mobile).
On the other hand: If your system natively has an Intel ME Firmware v9.0, I would not try to upfate it to a v9.5.xx.xxxx version.

#27 RE: Intel Management Engine: Drivers, Firmware & System Tools by skoczi 29.10.2013 13:55

If Pacman can explain i will be happy... This is very simple for me... if i have 9.0.xx i should update with 9.0.xx not 9.5.xx ---- but i want to know WHY :D :D especially if the Modding Stars say that 9.5 is for mobile why Clevo apply another one in nb...

@skoczi
You should use 9.0.x FW, 9.5.x is for Intel LP chipset for ULT CPU, mobile and NUC.
9.0.x is for Desktop Z87, Q87, Q85, H87, B85, H81 and mobile QM87, HM87, HM86 and workstation C226.
Of course there is Always a risk in flashing any firmware, unless you know for sure you can recover if it goes wrong.

I really thank you... and Fernando should change information on first site in this thread....

@ Pacman:
Thanks for the clarification regarding the ME9/ME9.5 affilation of the different Intel 8-Series Chipset systems.
Meanwhile I have put your explanation about the differences into the start post of this thread.

It's already done. I hope, that it is correct now. I am sorry for the previously misleading text.
There was a demand in the Forum for a special Intel ME thread. Since I am not an expert regarding the Intel ME Interface details, I had publicly searched for someone else, who should start a thread about this topic("Wanted: Someone who starts an Intel ME thread"), but obviously nobody was willing to do it. That was the reason why I started this thread myself.
