So I found an update for my desktop board, (link: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26834/Intel-Management-Engine-Firmware-9-x-Update-for-Inte...), but I do not understand how do I update it. Now the instructions seem clear and cut but I just can't wrap it around my head and update. If someone could please provide basic instructions, i'd be grateful. And I feel like an idiot but I can't do anything rather than ask help since I've been getting bluescreens and I'm trying to slowly and steadily update everything I can. Much appreciated on the help.
Yeah I did, I extracted the zip to my desktop then tried to navigate through the command prompt to my desktop but I can't seem to run it, every time I try to navigate to it, it sats "the specified path can't be found"
Actually, you do not even need to install this update.
There is a later BIOS update that contains even newer firmware and it is automatically installed during the BIOS update process. Bottom line, install the latest BIOS and you will have the latest available firmware for the ME for your board.
Oh, BTW, Al is correct; this will NOT fix your BSOD issues. It will make the ME less vulnerable to attack, but that's about it.
