Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware Update

2016-08-25, 2:47 AM

On my P50, when I check for updates with Lenovo Companion, it always tries to install Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware, and it downloads, says it failed when the little black command prompt opens, reboots, and then the update history said it was installed, yet Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware keeps popping up as an update. 

 

What is this update supposed to do? Why is it failing? Everything else on this computer is up to date.

Solved! See the solution

Hello,

 

Have you tried downloading the update directly from the page:


Name:  Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware for Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), 7 (64-bit) - ThinkPad P50, P70

URLhttp://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-p50/downloads/DS105420


and installing it manually?  Sometimes that works when an automated install does not, or gives you a more detailed error message.

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

It's a "lights-out" style remote management tool for use in the enterprise.

Hello, I have a similar problem too.

My machine will detect the update, download the file, install and restart automataically. Afterwards, in the update history, it shows the update is installed. But you run the update check again, it says the update is still reuired. But both cannot be true at the same time.

 

Update: Intel Management Engine 11.0 Firmware

 

Machine: Thankpad 13 (Type 20GJ, 20GK) Laptop (ThinkPad), Windows 10 Home

 

Please advise, thank you!

I've tried every way suggested to get IME 11.0 firmware to update. After download, the install brings up a black dialog box and there is a line in red, but it disappears in a nanano second so I am unable to read it.  After the PC reboots, it says it has istalled, but it hasen't.  How imprtant is this FW update?  Can I just ignore it?

Hello,


It is a security update, and those are important to install.  I would suggest calling Lenovo Customer Service at +1 (855) 253-6686 if you are in the United States and opening a ticket with technical support in order to troubleshoot why the update is failing.

Aryeh, my Yoga is out of warranty so Lenovo will not provide tech help. I can see why Apple gets such great ratings and Lenovo doesn't. Thank you for trying to help.

Are you referring to Lenovo not supporting out of warranty products, while Apple does?

Did you find any useful information? Everyone in the Lenovo forums can thank other members by clicking on the kudos star to the lower left.
