    Intel Integrator Assistant Not Worky

    sterion75

      We need to input the serial numbers of our PC's into the SMBIOS. The only way I can see to do it is with the IIA/

       

      We have DG33BU, DG45ID, DH55TC, DH67BL and the IIA says to all of them their not supported motherboards

       

      What is going on? I see a lot of people with this error but no answers? Ive tried installing intel desktop utilities which was suggested on one post but this also didnt work

       

      Using IIA 1.1.7.872a

          It seems to work on a fresh image however some that were imaged last week it isnt working

           

          Is there a time limit or something built in? ive tried breaking a working PC by running all windows updates, updating all drivers, updating bios etc but no luck still works

            Got a bit further with this

             

            If you run iassist on a new install from a memory stick it works fine and will work everytime unless

             

            If you try and run iassist from a network location or mapped drive it fails. It will also then subsequently fail on a memory stick on that machine. I'm guessing the system is blocking it or a file/setting is altered when running from a mapped drive?

              When you run the tool from a network drive it creates a service driver in the registry which fails as it trys to load a dll from the network which windows blocks

               

              I have written a script to delete this but requires a reboot. Variable64.sys is not alwaysfound. All these entries are supposed to clean up after the program exits

               

               

              batch file

              net stop efivariable
              regedit /S efi.reg
              del /Q C:\Windows\SysWOW64\drivers\variable64.sys

               

              registry file (efi.reg)

              Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

              [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\EfiVariable]

               

              Hopefully this will help someone
