ME Firmware update X1 Yoga Gen 1

2021-05-26, 21:46 PM

 

I am having issues with Intel AMT. Its installed and active in the bios.

 

I have tried to update the the Intel ME using the 11.8 Firmware update but I get the error below:

 

C:\DRIVERS\WIN\ME\20212605.21021515>FWUpdLcl64.exe -F ME_11.8_Corporate_C0_LP_Production.BIN -OEMID 4C656E6F-766F-0000-0000-000000000000 -generic -allowsv -y

Intel (R) Firmware Update Utility Version: 11.8.83.3874
Copyright (C) 2007 - 2021, Intel Corporation.  All rights reserved.


Error 8193: Fail to load MEI device driver (PCI access for Windows)
Above error is often caused by one of below reasons:
Administrator privilege needed for running the tool
ME is in an error state causing MEI driver fail
MEI driver is not installed

 

The photo of drive manager suggests MEI is running so can't see why it is complaing that the MEI driver is not installed. I am also running it under cmd.exe with Administrator access.

When I go into the BIOS I have the following:

 

UEFI BIOS Version N1FET73W (1.47)

Embedded Controller Version N1FHT35W (1.18)

ME Firmware Version 11.8.50.3448

 

I have tried a bios update and and downgrade but the pc goes into sleep mode so never continues.

I have been further playing with the AMT Settings.

 

I disabled AMT and pc eventually rebooted and had the following messages:

 

Unconfiguration in progress...

Unconfigure without password - Get Unconfigured Status Error

Intel (R) ME unconfiguration failed

Unconfigure Without Password Error

 

I then enabled AMT and used <Ctrl P>

 

FW Init Done not set after 20s

Get Interface Version Error

ME BIOS Sync - Get Platform State Error

ME Invocation Flow Error

Sorry for the late response.

Did you manage to proceed with the update?
Do practice having a backup of your personal data if not the image before any steps too just in case.

Sorry for the late reply.
How was it if you run the file as administrator by doing a right click option.

Hi,

 

The result was the same when running as an administrator.

 

Regards,

Kindly retry the process, but this time set the machine so that it will never sleep so we can see how far it goes.
