My sincere apolgogies if I posted this in the wrong spot but I was hoping to pick your brains on an issue I'm having with a new sandy bridge motherboard. It seems the motherboard I purchased (an MSI P67A-GD65) either has no Intel ME or it is somehow corrupt. I'm unable to check my version from a patch stick nor am I able to flash to a new version (everything gives an error, "Error 8193: Intel ME Interface: cannont locate ME device driver"). In addition, it's not listed in my system devices in hardware manager of my OS. I've been working with MSI support for a few weeks now and they seem to be baffaled. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what could be the cause of this? Is it actually possible to get the motherboard without the Intel ME firmware in place? Any insight would be wonderful. Thanks in advance.
