Thank you kostar20071. I didn't know the PDM status of 11.6.0.1126 either. They are both PDM as shown here. Probably not, but do you happen to have a programmer?

By programmer you mean "Flash Programming Tool"? if so yes, I downloaded the whole tool set :)
I don't have a dual bios and have no idea how to recover from a bad flash.

Intel MEI Driver v11.6.0.1042 (Windows 8.x & Windows 10) INF

Thanks to Pacman/SD for the new drivers!

Newbie here. I have a generic Qotom mini-PC with I5-4200u processor. The Intel MEI is shown to be missing or N/A. I would like to install it, but am confused between the terms .inf, the drivers, and flashing. My understanding is that this is a very low-level setting in the BIOS or CPU itself. I'm more familiar with Linux and Mac than Windows, but have Windows 7 loaded on the box as most of the tools seem to be Windows based.

What do I need to do to enable the Intel MEI (or HECI which seems to be similar)? Here's the dump from meiinfo:

System Information report written at: 12/19/16 17:22:26

Thanks for your help!

MEI (previously HECI) is the OS driver whereas ME points to the firmware version when seen at BIOS. I suppose that this "N/A" you see is a) at the BIOS and b) actually says "ME" and not "MEI". The distinction has to be made to avoid confusion and to understand the issue at hand.

I flashed with the new 3007 bios for Z170 and have no issues. However, when I went to download the 11.6.0.1039 driver and installed it, I happened to look at the task manager and there were several new 'Intel' tasks running. After checking on them I found the 70MB driver download had about 6 programs it installed including one that 'phones home'. I would be careful of installing the WHQL drivers from Intel due to this.

Hello,

Im on a Asus X99 board , Non-Enterprise board like X99 chipset for example. What exact components is then included and how may it be of any use for me? Is AMT remote access also available on these boards and just locked away for consumers? Im very curious of what the real potential might be if there is any. Both asrock and asus have "cloud" software available for installation allowing for remote access of files anywhere via hosted webgui even from WAN if computer is shutdown! how do they do this if OOB really isnt implemented in these circuits..

Is there any benefits of using a more up to date firmware than the one Asus provides? risks?

OK, thanks for the clarification. It looks like the ME itself isn't loading or is missing.

The previous was the output from a Windows program "meiinfo.exe". Looking at the BIOS (American Megatrends 5.6.5) under Advanced - PCH-FW it shows:

ME FW Version -N/A
ME Firmware mode - Normal Mode
ME Firmware Type - Full Sku Firmware
ME Firmware SKU - N/A

There are options -
ME Unconfig on RTC Clear State (Now enabled but tried both)
Firmware Update Configuration (Now enabled but tried both)

This is a generic motherboard sold by Qotom out of China, also seems to be sold by others. Any idea on procedure to get ME enabled?

@ gingerbob:

X99 uses only 1.5MB firmware so no AMT and OOB functionality. You didn't say the exact motherboard SKU but manufacturers can implement their own IPMI/KVM solutions instead of Intel's offering such as ASUS X99-WS/IPMI or similar.

@ martyf:

When it comes to Chinese manufactures, ME problems are very common mainly due to stupidity (bad SPI/BIOS flashes or intentional disabling because "customers cannot find drivers"). It depends on your case and thus luck really. You can find very similar topics about no brand Chinese boards and ME problems here, here and here among others. Please read them to get the general idea. Basically, unless the Chinese vendor has disabled it via the BIOS, you can repair the ME firmware by dumping it (need an unlocked Flash Descriptor + Flash Programming Tool with "fptw -d spi.bin" command), performing the cleanup guide and then flashing it back ("fptw -f spi_fix.bin" command). The instructions on what you need to do, how to unlock the Flash Descriptor etc can be found at the aforementioned topics.

How does one go about reporting a version of ME that "was not found at the database"?

I have some new BIOS with ME 11.6.0.1136

@ MC-Sammer:

You can compress and attach the SPI/BIOS image in this thread or you can share a link for me to download it from the OEM or similar.

@plutomaniac

ftp://usftp.clevo.com.tw/ALLBIOS/P7xxDM2...DM2G_B10602.zip is the bios in question and ftp://usftp.clevo.com.tw/ALLBIOS/ apparently have all of the bios straight from Clevo

Thank you MC-Sammer. That firmware was at the db, just at the dev 1.7.0_x branch of Github and not 1.6.8, maybe that's why you missed it.
