    First, apologies for the thread necromancy.


    To anyone looking for a solution to the below issue:

    Code:
    Intel (R) Firmware Update Utility Version: 11.8.50.3399
    Copyright (C) 2007 - 2017, Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    Communication Mode: MEI
    
    Error 8719: Firmware update cannot be initiated because Local Firmware update is disabled
    I had the same and have not seen any basic explanation as to why some people's firmware differs. I have now corrected this for myself, hopefully the below helps others in correcting the defect.

    ASUS originally had the Local FWUpdate flag disabled, it was enabled during a BIOS update somewhere between original FW and current version, like me you likely skipped multiple BIOS updates and went straight to latest. In order to correct the issue, you will first need to downgrade your firmware to an older version ( Version 0901 worked for me ). You wont be able to downgrade using the standard BIOS FW updater tool, you will likely need to use the USB BIOS flashback Process.

    Once downgraded you should note the Local FWUpdate flag is enabled. (Snippet from the MEI verification tool).

    Code:
    Intel(R) MEInfo Version: 11.6.0.1136
    Copyright(C) 2005 - 2016, Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    
    Intel(R) ME code versions:

        Intel(R) Dynamic Application Loader - PRESENT/ENABLED
    
    TLS                                          Disabled
    Last ME reset reason                         Firmware reset
    Local FWUpdate                               Enabled


    Once you confirm the Local FWUpdate flag is enabled, you can re-update to the latest firmware (which does nothing to change the flag) before performing FW changes to the MEI.


    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Kaelek for posting that - it resolved my issue. The BIOS version I downgraded to for my Maximum Hero VIII was Version 0802 2015/09/08. I was then able to apply the ME firmware fix.

    Z170-A can't update ME firmware

    I have the same issue as Kaelek on ASUS Z170-A, BIOS 3504, Windows 10 Pro x64. Short version: updated ME Driver to the latest version 11.7.0.1040, MEUpdateTool (version - 2017/11/22) doesn't work - system is still vulnerable according to Intel-SA-00086 Detection Tool. Running "FWUpdLcl64.exe -f ME.bin" gives the same "Error 8719: Firmware update cannot be initiated because Local Firmware update is disabled". Tried solutions from forums, such as clean Windows 10 Pro x64 install, clearing CMOS, running FWUpdLcl64 from flash drive - do not work.

    I am unable to perform the fix suggested by Kaelek since Z170-A doesn't seem to support USB BIOS flashback, so I was only able to downgrade to 3xxx versions of BIOS, and they all seem to have Local Firmware update disabled.

    Did anyone with Z170-A managed to update ME firmware after upgrading to BIOS 3504?

    If anyone else with Z170-A finds this thread, I moved my problem with Error 8719 to a separate thread in Other Series category, since this a Maximus VIII series one. See https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...p-from-support.

    I was able to solve it by first downgrading to 0802 via the USB BIOS Flashback feature. Then I applied the ME firmware update and then finally I've updated to BIOS 3703.
    Finally everything looks good.

    So if you have a Maximus Hero VIII card, you can follow these instructions if you are unable to flash ME:
    1. Download http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...-ASUS-0802.zip
    2. Place the CAP file on the USB stick and rename it to M8H.CAP
    3. Shutdown computer.
    4. As per https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1013998 hold BIOS flash button for 3 seconds.
    5. It should now be downgrading, it'll take a while, when it's completed the light will no longer be blinking.
    6. Boot windows and run the firmware update for ME.
    7. Upgrade to latest BIOS as normally via either the internet update or through a downloaded CAP file.
    8. Verify that ME is no longer vulnerable with the SA00086 tool from Intel.
