I'm currently testing our software against HP DC7700's and have encountered a problem that I hope someone can help me with. The problem is as follows:
The HP systems BIOS was very old, v1.05. As this version is known to have problems i updated the BIOS with v2.10 (The version for systems with Intel ME).
After the upgrade my BIOS gives the following system information:
- System BIOS = 786E1 v02.10
- ME Firmware Version = 126.96.36.1992
During the boot process there is a period where the ME information is displayed. Everything seems to go well, however after the "ME-BIOS Sync - Sucessfull" an error is shown.
2218-ME Firmware Version should be updated.
ME BIOS Extension module execution has halted. Update BIOS or Management Engine firmware if problem persists.
Can anyone please tell me how to fix this. I just updated the BIOS with the latest version available from the HP website.
