System BIOS and Intel Management Engine Firmware update for HP dc7700

Release Date: 2006-10-10

Last Updated: 2007-01-31


DETAILS OF CHANGE

The new BIOS image incorporates support for Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) 2.1.1

The new AMT 2.1.1 system BIOS and new Intel Management Engine (iME) firmware images contain support for reduced power consumption in Sleep and Off states. Serial-over-LAN (SOL) console operation is also improved. The iME firmware image now clears the AMT default domain setting in order to properly function with USB key provisioning.

Intel also upgraded the preinstalled Local Management Service (LMS) to address potential privacy requirements that may be associated with its Active Management Technology by adding a pop-up message requiring user response. As requested by Intel, HP is providing you this upgrade version. Consult your local privacy requirements or legal counsel to determine any applicable privacy requirements that may apply to you.

COMPONENT VERSION

dc7700 - New System BIOS 786E1 v2.xx

REASON FOR CHANGE

This BIOS and firmware image supports all dc7700 configurations, which are vPro compliant.

The new iME firmware will properly allow USB Key Provisioning to be a single step process rather than a two step process as currently implemented. Previously the default domain setting was changed through the MEBx menu option. The Serial-over-LAN (SOL) change fixed video corruption in the ISB remote control consoles.

IMPACT OF CHANGE

The new BIOS and iME Firmware revisions will replace the existing versions for all dc7700 XP Pro vPro configurations and will be included with the new vPro Vista configurations. The new revisions will be released into manufacturing starting March 1, 2007 .
