I have reposted your question on the following thread: SCCM 2nd stage provisioning issue
This thread is becoming unmanageable.
Any future poster, please create a new thread for your question. There are too many tangent conversation happing in this thread and it is easy to have questioned missed.

"+*HI, i was so amazed how incredible Intel's tech is. And i was wondering
when will you guys market these V Pri processors. Becaus
kid trying for a budget computer. So i want to get some hands on with your new tech. Because it looks so easy to manage things
an i totaly want one."
Since you have mentioned that you are just 14 yo, I would like to first correct you that it's vPro, there's nothing as "V Pri" and secondly, vPro is a platform name that refers to a set of motherboard technology and
features that is targeted for digital office/enterprise customers. vPro has been in market for quite sometime now and is maturing everyday however since you want a budgeted PC for yourself, tell us your requirements and we will see what options you can get within your allocated budget and intended purpose of use. Moreover do tell us, what makes you want a vPro as your PC?
Take care and have a nice day
In response to:
"Hi, my customer is interest of deploy a vPro-AMT, i need to clarify 3 issues (consider using Core2 Duo vPro)
A. Is All Core 2 Duo Processors are include vPro"
Here are answers to your queries:
A. Although Intel mentions the Core 2 Duo processor as part of vPro, the technology can run on other chips such as a Pentium D. The only processor requirement is that the chip support Intel's Virtualization Technology so you can run a separate maintenance operating system alongside the primary one.
B. Yes! Q33 supports AMT so you can deploy vPro. VPro requires specific chipsets: Q963/Q965 (Broadwater-Q), Q33/Q35 (Bearlake-Q), or Q43/Q45 (Eaglelake-Q), which support Intel's AMT (Active Management Technology).
C. AMT is a hardware-based technology that facilitates remote out-of-band management of computers by use of a small secondary processor located on the motherboard, therefore, you may say that AMT is an access platform to vPro functionality.
it's strange i looked on the compare:
No Changes looks over there but when you review the spec i didn't found and mentioned on AMT.
do you have any answer?
In response to "How can I setup some type of batch file that can poll a computer with AMT provisioned, and if it is not turned on, turn it on?"
You can call the Remote Control Utility Intel® AMT Remote Power Control Utility from a batch file. The utility will return the power state of a system and allow you to power up, reset, or power down / off the system.
I have gone trought the following article:
Regarding the following step in "Generate the Certificate Signing Request (CSR)":
"When promoted for the site's common name, enter the FQDN of the target server. This value could also include a placeholder hostname is needed. The more important piece is the DNS suffix specified."
In this example our NS-servername is server1.yourdomain.com.
Is it possible to create it like provisionserver.yourdomain.com when you have set up a DNS-alias to server1.yourdomain.com?
Anyone that have done this or have any comments?
In response to MESSAGE 123:
I did see the comparison between Q35 and Q33, I have also gone through the product brief however I don't understand what part is not clear to you. Is it that you do not find AMT section in the Product brief cause AMT is clearly specified on page 4 of 4, second column. However I did find a mistake in that document, that is NOTE # 6 is mentioned twice, on Intel HD Audio and Intel AMT while AMT should have been noted 3. I have already sent a request for the correction in the product brief, thank you for getting my attention to that. Apart from this, if you are having any issues or anything is not clear, do let me know.

One question for in-band provision on vPro machine with SCCM SP1: I saw <<**+ Intel vPro Out of Band Management Quick Start Install Guide>> in the web. The In-band provision is a little different with OOB which I did in lab and SCCM help. If I follow the guide and do nothing on AMT ME and only turn-on AMT. Do I provision AMT in SCCMSP1 through SCCM Agent with inband provisioning if I only turn on AMT, but I don't type CA HASH, SCCM FDQN, SCCM server IP in AMT ME? Does SCCM agnet write CA HASH, SCCM server IP and FDQN information into ME when SCCM make inBand provisioning with vPro machine?+*
ConfigMgr won't write the certificate hash into AMT's memory. That must be done using a USB stick, or the MEBx (Ctrl-P at bootup), or by your hardware vendor prior to shipping the computer to you. That is the same for both out of band provisioning (import wizard) and in-band provisioning with the ConfigMgr agent. Both provisioning methods will set the FQDN of AMT to match the information it has in the ConfigMgr database (either the hostname from the operating system if you're using in-band provisioning, or the name entered in the wizard for out of band provisioning).
As to the other AMT settings, neither the ConfigMgr Out of Band Service Point IP address nor the FQDN will not get written into AMT memory during provisioning. ConfigMgr will add the name "ProvisionServer" into DNS if you check the option, and therefore, AMT systems will locate the out of band service point automatically. If you want to set the IP address and/or FQDN, those must be done prior to provisioning.
As noted by the previous poster, SCCM agent will not write the Thumb print of the issuing Root CA for your desired Provisioning Certificate into the MEBx; which is why the general recommendation is to purchase a provisioning certificate from one of the approved 3rd party certificate Authorities.
If you wish to use your own PKI infrastructure to generate the provisioning certificate, you will need to load the thumb print into your MEBx (as noted will require a physical touch of the client) prior to provisioning. Typically you will want to use ProvisionServer DNS record to resolve to the SCCM Out of Band Service Point; however, if desired you can load the FQDN or IP address manually into the MEBx or use the USBFile utility (located in the AMT Software Development Kit)
We have some questions about Intel® Entry Storage System SS4200-E .
1. Can we integrate this storage with windows active Directory so that we can manage shared folders of the users with windows security permissions like full Control, modify, Read & execute, list folder contents, Read ,Write, special Permissions.
2. And also we want to create one folder for each department and this folder will have subfolder for each user and also we need to define the quota for each user.
3. Intel® Entry Storage System SS4200-E maximum support 4 hard drives, how can we upgrade.
