Intel Management Engine 8 and 3rd Generation Processors

Hi

I have been following the guide here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-033076.htm Desktop Boards — Updating the BIOS to support 3rd Generation Intel® Core&# 153; Processors to update my board (DH67BL) to the latest BIOS so that I can upgrade my processor to an i7 3770.

I upgraded to the BIOS to the Transition BIOS and then to the Ready BIOS.

However, my Intel Management Engine is stuck at Version 7.1. As per the flowchart, I will have to use the recovery update method, however, the Interactive Wizard doesn't even ask for the version of IME.

This machine is for personal use (mostly playing video games). I wanted to know, do I need to do a Recovery Update of my BIOS or is it OK to leave IME at v7.1

BIOS Details: http://1drv.ms/1n0d6Y1 Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

IME: http://1drv.ms/1n0dfKU Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

Thanks

Hello Moglee, thanks for contacting us through the Intel Communities.

 

I would like to tell you that according to the release notes on BIOS version 0151, the Management Engine version is 7.1.30.1142.

Not even the latest BIOS v0160 has an update to ME 8.0.

At this point, since you already have the BIOS necessary to use a 3rd generation processor, you should not have problems installing it on your system. However, if for any change it does not work; please contact our customer support department for additional information http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport
