Hello schandr,


have you checked this:


If you see any errors, check Device Manager to see if the following device drivers are installed on the system:

System devices
Intel® Management Engine Interface

If not installed, install using the following packages:
Intel AMT 6.0 - Management Engine Interface and Serial Over LAN (SOL) Driver.
