Unknown Error 8838 when Updating AMT Firmware

Just after some advice on what this error means. Its being seen on a number of machines when attempting to upgrade AMT Firmware using Intel tool FWUpdLcl64.exe to upgrade to 11.0.25.3001 within a Windows 7 x64 OS.

Sometimes a restart can resolve it, other times multiple restarts may be needed before it can succeed.

thank you

Hi Jnachos,

Can you provide us with the make, model, processor and chipset of the system's you are referring? Are they all the same models, different, etc? Are you noticing any patterned behaviors based on model?

Regards,

Michael

Specifically it seems to be Lenovo M900 with Core I5-6500 (Quad Core 3.2GHz 6MB).

No pattern of behaviour, other than it affects some machines and not others, and that repeated attempts over a course of time at the firmware upgrade seem to eventually allow it to be accepted. Sometimes a single reboot resolves it, sometimes not.

Im somewhat stuck with troubleshooting since the error provides no information as to the cause.

Hi Jnachos,

Please check that the Intel Management Interface driver is installed on the problem systems. Go to Device Manager->System Devices. You should see something like the following:

Thanks for your reply. I have checked a number of systems and confirmed the ME driver is properly installed. Is there anything else to check ?

hi Jnachos,

Sorry for the back and forth. I would like to know what version of the ME driver that is installed on these systems. Are they all on the same version or are there differences. Once you have this information, can you also check the Lenovo web site to make sure you have the latest ME version?
