Hello zmud,


Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.

 

We do recommend contacting the manufactufacturer of your server board and check with them if there is an option on the BIOS to open the HDC.


Additionally, please provide us the model on your Xeon processor.



Best regards,

Yea, but those documents are for the full superset of features. I guess we will need @SergioS_Intel to look into this after all.
