x210 stock bios with ME disabled in option menu.

#1 Post by verynice » Thu Aug 08, 2019 2:43 am

Hello, can anyone be of help and provide bios.rom of a stock bios with ME disabled in options menu?
I made a mistake and flashed modified bios which had me enabled in options, now me is in a strange state.
Device starts with 15sec timeout, it can't bring ME up in the kernel logs, using me_cleaner helps,
no logs in the dmesg, but there's still timeout on start.
thank you!

ME is disabled (I believe), EC is modded

You disabled it in the PCH-settings?
If so it still show ME State: Enabled, this is strange.

I think I did. Anyway you can always flash the rom and disable it yourself, I guess.

That's the problem, when I try to turn it off,
it shows enabled in BIOS after reboot. So I simply can't
disable ME in order to reenable it. And with ME
in this hanging state the boot times are awful.
The only possible solution is to flash a BIOS
with predisabled ME.
