#1 [REQUEST] Toughbook CF-19 MK6 unlocking advanced options (Intel ME issues/ Windows 10 UEFI)... by BillyBons 27.02.2020 00:40

Following the other post about unlocking MK-6 (need to boot Windows 10 disk image made from GPT disk) I get the same issue for 2 CF-19s. Backed up my original BIOS with TL866II plus (happy camper) and used modified BIOS version/s provided by Lost_N_BIOS (big thanks) in another post.
I noticed on both laptops that I am loosing Intel ME and can not update it using Panasonics ME firmware updater, not sure how important. I can still boot into original MBR installation on both laptops , I can boot GRUB, I can start Windows 10 installation from USB stick (not CD as it will put me into legacy mode) and it would blue screen on me "KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED" on both laptops. Where I am being dumb?

My specs:
Info about systems: Both Panasonic CF19-MK6
Computer Brand Name: Panasonic Corporation 1st-CF-191DCSG1M and 2nd-CF-191HYAX1M (moded firmware model# CF-191G-50DE Does it make a difference?)
Motherboard Chipset: Intel QM77 (Panther Point)
BIOS Version: V6.00L14
Intel ME Version: 8.1.72.3002

Attached BIOS dump from CF-191HYAX1M

Use this file and write with SPI programmer. It is YOUR backup (posted by you) modded for CF-191HYAX1M model.

It has activated Debug Menu and Chipset Menu.

WARNING ! Don't mess up with Debug menu options ! Especial those related to VGA ROM, option ROM etc. They are not reversible by setup default or CMOS clearing...

So be sure you know what you are doing.

Report back your progress please.
