Thank you Pacman, first MCE report! You know how to manually add to the DB, right? It’s -pdb and then copy-paste from the equivalent file that got generated (Intel, AMD or VIA).

Also, for now, if you spot full APL SPI images, you should keep them because I don’t know how TXE3 is structured exactly, whether it has SKUs and so on. Just a heads up.

Yes, thank you, just added it :slight_smile:

Nice, thank you Pacman.

For anyone who doesn’t know, you can use parameter -cont to extract immediately the microcodes of Intel containers (dat, inc, h, txt) and their variations.

Sorry to be late for the database update :slight_smile: (94.2 KB)

Thank you! No worries, people can use -pdb to add manually if they want.
