I have also experienced the 'FW Status recovery error' on a non-Intel box (CompuLab uSVR). I believe it started after using the Intel SCS utility to create a USB that was used to boot the computer.
I have tried to reset the BIOS on the motherboard and reflash the current BIOS available from CompuLab, but nothing has resolved the problem. The few cases that I've seen posted on the Internet suggest that BIOS updates can correct this issue...
Hopefully someone can help us out!
