[Solved] Intel ME and Shutdown Problems with GA-H55M-S2V

That file belongs and is needed for the tool… look insider her and you’ll understand why…

EDIT: Run the tool on the root drive with simple folder name and as CMD ADMIN
The tool needs the ME windows driver installed.

file exist, it contains settings and perimeters for app .it is inside folder with app itself .have no idea why it can’t be find .it is txt format

Please describe detailed what you’re doing / trying to accomplish and on which board / which bios version.

Make a screenshot of the error in a way that one can read the command that was entered, too!

Sir… can you please pay attention to what your doing… your’re playing with a bit “dangerous” tool if you dont operate it correctly, be warned.

Now… does the FPT tool, belongs to the MS Windows operating system???
C:\Windows\System32 ???
Is this where the tool is located???
Lets start using “the brain” a little bit more, can you?

yes , tool is located in win folder with all components including fparts.txt

Good for you, you’re the man, cheers!

Unusual way to have all in \windows\system32 ??

Since your ME seems to be corrupt the driver isn’t gonna loaded properly. That won’t let many ME tools work properly. In addition windows is often writing into NVRAM but you’re wanting to rewrite the complete firmware including NVRAM

I recommend creating a bootable USB stick with DOS and using the DOS versions, especially for that old systems.

Although I am not an expert regarding this topic, I have tried to shorten and to specify the thread title to make it easier for users with a GA-H55M-S2V mainboard to find this interesting discussion.
