    I don't know why you ask these questions. If you read what it says on Asus support (in BIOS section) you got all the answers to your questions. Some people just skip the important part before download and installaltion. It will take you less than a minut to read the text ??

    Here is what you missed to read:

    why I ask these questions? because I need it clarified.. I DO NOT want to brick the board & there is 2 INTEL ME one in Bios & one in OS.

    also I wanted to know if you could use the Tool to downgrade the INTEL ME

    btw I tried the tool just & it completed & I restarted but it did not change any INTEL ME. bios or 0S

    on this site it says

    ''A. About Intel MEI Drivers

    The latest v11.7 drivers are usable with all Intel chipsets from 8-Series & up. Users of 6 & 7-series systems must use the latest v11.0 drivers. Users of 5-series & lower systems must check Section D to find the driver they need. In order to check your current installed version, use MEInfo tool as instructed below.''

    im not sure maybe thats why its not working with my Skylake


    EDIT: so I tried multiple times & it went through.. the Bios intel ME is now 11.8.50.3399

    agree. more information is need. since IF is needed, asus is asuming that everyone have AI suite install. so ME UPDATE TOOL UI , as far i check is only is use if AI is install. since i try on kaby without AI Suit and does not work.

    I don't have AI Suite and everything installed properly on mine. Both drivers taken from the motherboard driver support page.

    You make things complicated.....if you just followed the guideline on ASUS it would have been very simple to update MEI drivers and then use the Update Tool. No you can not downgrade with Update Tool. It updates the MEI drivers because of securtity issues.

    Any idea if this is safe? Seems pretty serious
    Why wouldn't it be safe?? Of course it's safe. If you dont' update it will not be safe. Do security issues sound strange?

    When formatting the PC is it necessary to reinstall these files or are they already integrated?

    There is (was) a nasty vulnerability with ME which allowed an attacker remote exploitation. I would patch this ASAP. Many other manufacturers had this patch out months ago when it first reported.

    Update Intel MEI driver first, then firmware. Firmware refuses to be updated with outdated driver, hence errors with bios-section utility.

    EDIT: AI-Suite plays no part in this update. Formatting does not affect any firmware, only drivers.

    Hi Tygerion, is your answer referring to my question?
