    Problems updating the Management Engine firmware on DB75EN

    Stamgastje

      My Intel Desktop Board DB75EN is affected by the AMT vulnerability.

       

      I found a firmware update here:

      Intel® Active Management Technology Escalation of Privilege Advisory...

       

      However, when I try to install it, I encounter two problems.

       

      First: I'm running Linux -- and the firmware update utility runs on Windows only. So is there also a utility available to update the FW under Linux?

       

      As a workaround, I created a Windows 10 Recovery Drive (on a USB stick) and copied the update to that USB stick. I then booted the PC using that USB stick and tried to run the firmware update from within that Windows Recovery (WinPE) environment. I then got the following output:

       

      D:\EN-FW-Update\EN-FW-Update-64bit>FWUpdLcl64.exe -f ME8_5M_Production.bin -generic

       

      Intel (R) Firmware Update Utility Version: 8.1.40.1456

      Error 8743: Unknown or Unsupported Platform

      Cannot locate hardware platform identification

      This program cannot be run on the current platform.

       

      Any idea why this does not work? And how to resolve it?
