M58 (non-vPro) models, has an "Intel(R) AMT" menu in the BIOS Setup Utility. Both M58p (vPro) and M58 (non-vPro) have an AMT menu in the BIOS Setup, which is different from the M57p and M57.
The above symptom may occur on the following systems:
- ThinkCentre M58 (type 6139, 6175, 6239, 6258, 6302, 6303, 7174, 7244, 7348, 7354, 7355, 7360, 7373, 7626, 7627, 7628, 7637, 7638, 7639, 7187, 7359, 8820, 8910, 9960)
- ThinkCentre M58p (type 6136, 6137, 6138, 6209, 6234, 7188, 7220, 7346, 7347, 7356, 7357, 7358, 7484, 7629, 7635, 8338, 9964, 9965, 7345, 7479, 7483, 7630, 9961)
Intel Management Engine (ME) Firmware will provide different functions automatically according to the CPU on the system:
- M58p (vPro model), which use vPro CPU, ME will provide AMT 5.0 function.
- M58 (non-vPro model), which use non-vPro CPU, ME will provide Intel Standard Manageability.
The function of Intel Standard Manageability is similar with AMT 3.2, which needs an AMT menu in BIOS to configure.
Intel(R) AMT menu shows as below:
The function of the settings:
| Items || Description || Default |
|Intel (R) AMT ||To Enable/Disable Intel AMT. If AMT disabled: 1.hide the CTRL-P prompt so there would not be any method to provision iAMT 2.would not look for setup.bin on a USB key so the MEBX will not be provisioned 3.BIOS issue an unprovision. At next boot, an unprovision prompt will be shown after POST. 4.Disable SOL/IDER ||Enable|
|MEBx Reset ||To reset AMT configuration to factory settings without entering MEBx ||Disable|
|Press CTRL-P to enter MEBx ||User can or can not enter MEBx by pressing CTRL-P ||Enable|
|Intel (R) AMT SKU ||Intel ME FW SKU ||AMT+ QST+ ASF2 ( Show only)|
|ME Firmware Version ||Intel ME FW version || |
|COM Port Address ||If SOL enabled, the SOL Configuration will be shown. SOL: Serial Over LAN, a feature of AMT. ||SOL|
|Console Type ||Console Type of SOL COM port ||VT100+|
|Continue C.R. after POST ||Enable Console Redirection after OS has loaded ||On|
None. Do not replaced any hardware for this issue.
This is working as designed and expected behavior.
