Hello Julio2,

 

Thank you for your response.


From what we have been able to see on the report, your system has a vPro capable processor; however, further researching this ME Lockout MOD feature gives us more questions than answers, from what we understand, Dell gives the option to the buyer of selecting certain special configurations for some of their systems, among those configurations is the ME Lockout MOD, the No out of band systems management- vPro disabled option and other options such as ME inoperable and vPro standard MOD> We are not familiar with this configurations and there is little to no information about them online; therefore, our strongest recommendation is to get in touch with Dell directly to see if there is a way to change the ME Lockout MOD to maybe vPro standard MOD so you can have the manageability options that your system is capable of having.


Best regards,

Hello Julio2,

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Based on our investigation, we must inform you that you can’t change the ME lockout MOD. The reason why is that Dell permanently disables the ME in BIOS with this configuration. The only way to reenable it is to replace the Motherboard; therefore, our strongest recommendation will be for you to contact Dell support and explain your situation so you can work with them to see what your options are (i.e. RMA).

 

Best regards,
