is it possible to flash/update the BIOS remotely using AMT?
If not, can AMT somehow be used to prevent BIOS updates by the user?
We are planning to use AMT to remote-control several machines in a lab, and so far AMT works really well for what we want to do. While I've successfully accessed the BIOS via AMT, I didn't find a way so far to prevent BIOS updates (or to flash the BIOS remotely myself in order to undo any changes to the BIOS itself).
Thanks in advance,

"It depends" on a number of things. First, it depends on how the OEM implements FW upgrades. Some give you an exe file that you just run in windows. Some require putting the bin file on a usb stick and running the tools from DOS. Some split the FW updates into the different parts/regions for the FW. If your OEM requires a full BIOS/FW update in one file, it probably won't work because you can't replace the BIOS if it is in use.
