[Guide] Clean Dumped Intel Engine (CS)ME/(CS)TXE Regions with Data Initialization

Look into this archived thread, see #12.

For the errors during cleaning- you have to follow the guide really “to the letter”! But since correct bios settings / bios support seems to be required, too, it’s not enough to have PTT ‘enabled at startup’ in ME.

Yes, I have configured the bios. The first thing I tried was in that post. How didnt work I started to modify the bios with amibcp from nothing in meinfo about ptt to enabled in ME but still disabled in fpf(attachted file in previous post)


this is the problem from the previous post

this is to show how ptt is activated but still showing fpf ptt disabled and nothing in windows


@Lavand Please post a picture of the last lines of your MEInfo- output. The last lines are difficult to read if posted as text.

I should look like this:

If the PTT really is disabled in FPF this is a one time setting which gets fused into the PCH at the end of manufacturing:

u mean is game over? with ptt fpf disabled


Looks to me like that, yes.

Hello!
I received an error message when entering the command “AMTNVM.exe -edit intermediate.bin config.txt -out outimage.bin”. The message says:

Invalid Parameter Value Error:
An illegal parameter value was entered for
Default Power Package

The original input image would be the bios dump that I want to clean, correct?
Could anyone help me resolve this?

Thanks!

ME 2 - 3 is really old, so I’d assume there are very few people with experience out there who can answer this question with only this unspecific error message.
Maybe someone can reproduce the error if given the files / machine type.

I used iAMTNVM version v2.6.0.1025.

In version v2.1.1.1030 of iAMTNVM a different error message appears:

Invalid Parameter Value Error:
An illegal parameter value was entered for
DHCP Enabled

lfb6: I’m not finding where to attach the bios dump I’d like to clean

Or simply zip the file and drop into the answer- textboc

Or put it somwhere else (google drive [with access for all], other hosters…) and post the link to the file.

Thanks :pray: :slightly_smiling_face:

bios dump I’d like to clean:

6910P IBT00 LA-3262P Rev-1B GPU.rar (1.4 MB)

Thanks!!!

OK, never worked on such an old ME!

I just have a pragmatic proposal- edit config.txt manually and put in the desired value when AMT should be enabled- possible values are 1,2 or 3. Might be part of the corruption that the tool fills in 16777473?

The output is consistent, the command works for 1,2,3 - gives a valid error message for 4 and 5 and all other values are ‘invalid’

Do you mean that the value 0 in the Default Power Packege setting is not being accepted by iAMTNVM.exe? So does the value 0 mean disabled? That’s my guess…

I don’t understand how the edit command completed successfully if the config.txt you attached is the same as the one I have here. What changes were made to config.txt to complete successfully?

I’m sorry for my English! I’m using Google Translate and I suppose it doesn’t do it very well

Again, I thank you for your help!!! :pray: :pray: :pray:

The quoted config.txt is the unchanged. Bold are the enabled and disabled packages and the default value. . Replace 1677423 with 1, 2,or 3 depending which behaviour you wish for AMT
