Hiya, just ordered & received my new X1 with an i7 core over the last week.
Interesting and educational tracking the laptop all the way from China to UK via UPS...
Anyway, all seems to be in order apart from one small niggle.
I have noticed an "Intel Management Engine" systray icon running on the OS installed, in particular the Intel Anti Theft technology service.
My question is how do I register and enable this? There is NOTHING within the software or the printed documentation which had come with the laptop explaining this. There are no buttons on the systray config screen enabling you to do anything.
When I open the systray icon it says:
Intel AMT: Enabled
Intel AT: Enabled
And if i got to Intel AT tab, it says: "Status as of last boot: Not Enrolled"
How the hell do I enroll? I tried going to intel's AT service webpage, and basically you need to register, however for the registration you need some kind of a code. Their website says the code should have come printed on the leaflet with the laptop. I have the box laptop had come in, in front of me together with all the documentation - there is absolutely nothing mentioning Intel AT, no codes or anything of the kind.
Is this AT service something you have to pay extra for?
I would like to suggest Lenovo includes further information on Intel AT with their laptops supporting Intel AT which have Intel AT software preinstalled. I am an IT professional yet found Intel AT's systray options very confusing.
What should I do?
Solved! Go to Solution.
