    Hi everyone,

    I got some PMs from users telling me that an ASUS dev from overclock.net forum ("bianbao") told them not to flash the Intel ME Firmware that I offer in my thread because Intel ME Firmware needs to be "configured" for ASUS motherboards. It's wrong, the Intel ME Firmware update don't update/touch the ME firmware system-specific settings :

    The ME region of your BIOS is split into two subregions : CODE & DATA.

    - CODE : Where the ME firmware engine & subfirmware engine are.
    - DATA : Where the ME firmware system-specific settings are (this DATA subregion is not meant to be updated with every Intel ME Firmware update, and this DATA subregion can only be updated/modified by a BIOS update when there is a major Intel ME Firmware change such as a branch upgrade for example).

    The Intel update tool included in all my Intel ME Firmware packages only updates the CODE subregion of your BIOS ME region as intended by Intel. Which therefore makes my Intel ME Firmware packages compatible with all consumer motherboards using the chipsets listed in the threads (not just ASUS).


    Paradoxically, now another ASUS dev offers my latest firmware package (with processes included) in overclock.net forum, without even crediting me ... :


    Anyway, I do not feel offended, I see this as a guarantee of the quality of the drivers/firmware work I provide for the ASUS community for so many years.

    Hi,

    No worry, it's more the unjustified disparagement of my work by the first ASUS dev that demoralized me in the moment (but maybe his words were misinterpreted by the users, so i don't blame him), the second ASUS dev seems more objective about the quality of my work (even if he doesn't credit me for my work, he validates the quality of my work by sharing it, it's still gratifying from ASUS staff). It's fine.

    Thanks for the consideration you have of my work & your support anyway.

    After reading the the link provided by MoKiChU, I cannot stop laughing how naïve people from nowhere pop up like a idiot without common sense.

    MoKiChU, just ignored them. You the man.

    Is it technically safe to use 16.1.25.2091 MEI Firmware with the official asus MEI driver package (Intel Management Engine Interface V2240.3.4.0(SW 2242.3.34.0)) or should we definitely use your MEI drivers? Thanks for all the awesome work you do!!

    Hi,

    It is more optimal to update to the last Intel MEI drivers before trying to update to the last Intel ME firmware :

    [DRIVERS] Intel Chipset/MEI/VMD (6xx/7xx)

    - Intel MEI Drivers (Drivers Only)

    Hi,

    I have some purely knowledge questions that it's okay if you don't feel like answering but I was curious about.

    1.) Is it okay to install intel ME firmware while in windows safe mode?

    2.) When running your ME firmware install and it goes to reboot, is it safe to immediately go to the bios and update the bios or should the user let the computer boot to windows first?

    3) Say for example that your ME firmware got malware/virus/infected, would this also spread to the bios itself or could the user just re-apply the firmware update and reflash bios to be safe? and vice-versa if your bios was infected could it spread to the mei firmware before you had a chance to reflash and re-apply firmware. I guess what I'm asking is would it be impossible to fully remove the malware if either your ME firmware or bios got infected or would reflashing both cover it?
