Request Media Device Table Update

The following steps describe how to retrieve the Media table information during a local reboot. 

The method  applies only when a fast boot in BIOS is enabled.  If the fast boot is disabled, a full table update will always be performed, as before.

When rebooting remotely the Media table information will always be updated, even if fast boot is enabled and full update is false.

1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_AssetTableService, where the “InstanceID” key equals “Intel(r) AMT Asset Table Service.

2.  Invoke  AMT_AssetTableService.RequestMediaDeviceTableUpdate with the following parameters:

a.   Full Update

      If true – Request the BIOS to perform full table update on the next boot.

      If false – Do not request full update on the next boot.

b.   Sticky

      If true – The FullUpdate option should relate to all subsequent boots until the next call to this API.

      If false – The FullUpdate option relates only to the next boot.
