I have an ISPP member who is writing information out to the AMT storage areas to reliably check later if a machine is dual boot, has had an OS upgrade, had the .NET framework upgraded, has current antivirus and OS patches ... They'll be adding anAtom interface shortly but don't expect to see CPU or disk upgrades, but will check for them. Here are a few scenarios they could use help with:
1. Suppose AMT can be used under MeeGo - someone changes their Intel Atom netbook from Win7 to MeeGo. Can the app still access the old AMT data written when the machine was Win7?
What if some app doesn't work for some reason and the user reverts back to Win7 after a few days. Would you see all three sets (old Win7, MeeGo, current Win7) of AMT data using Win7?
2. If it is possible to change chips or add a sizzling multi-GPU graphics card. If there's no Intel CPU one cannot write to or retrieve from AMT. Is that correct?
If some whizbang graphics card were added to a gaming machine, or maybe juiced the RAM, for example, it would be fine with AMT, right?
3. Do anti-virus protectors like McAfee (now owned by Intel) scan AMT storage? Pay any attention when it is read or written?
I appreciate your response and thank you!
