Intel Management Engine Firmware Failing Update (T460)

2020-12-16, 23:02 PM

Greetings,

I have been unable to successfully update the Intel Management Engine Firmware on my machine.  I've tried to update this through Lenovo Vantage, the Lenovo Update Utility, the Lenovo Service Bridge and a manual update and all have failed multiple times.  Any ideas or assistance in fixing this would be much appreciated.  Thank you much. Details below--

 

Update details:

Lenovo Management Engine Firmware Update 11.8.80.3746

The update makes it up through "image ... FW for verification" where I see a percentage as it is processing.

Immediately after that it serves up "Error: 8834" and forces a complete system restart.

 

System details:

Thinkpad T460

Model: 20FN003FUS

My machine does have Intel's Active Management Technology enabled in the BIOS.

 

Thanks again for any suggestions or assistance!
