This package contains utilities that can be used to update the Intel Management 
Engine (ME) Firmware on the supported desktop models with a 786F1 system BIOS.

Several methods for updating the ME firmware may be chosen. Included in this 
package are the following methods:

- The DOS utility updates the Intel ME firmware for the local machine in a DOS 
environment, and also verifies that the firmware has been updated.
- The Microsoft Windows utility updates the Intel ME firmware of the local 
machine in a Microsoft Windows environment, and also verifies that the firmware 
has been updated.

NOTE: The AMT 3.2 ME firmware image is only intended for HP Compaq dc7800 PC 
configurations. This SoftPaq does NOT include a system BIOS image. However, it 
is recommended that the system BIOS be updated to the latest version (1.24 or 
later) before upgrading the ME firmware. Once the ME firmware is updated to 
this new image, it CANNOT be re-flashed to an older ME firmware version 
(meaning you CANNOT restore it to a 3.0 AMT version).
