From my threads :1) Update your Intel MEI Drivers to the last :[DRIVERS] Intel Chipset/MEI/SATA/VMD (1xx/2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx)- Intel MEI Drivers (Drivers Only)
2) Update your Intel ME Firmware to the last :
Or from your motherboard support page :1) Update your Intel MEI Drivers to the last (but it's not the version corresponding to the version working in tandem with Intel ME firmware v188.8.131.520) : https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1700/M3887/Intel_MEI_V2184.108.40.206_Windows_11_64-bit.zip
2) Update your Intel ME Firmware to the last (the Firmware PHY S is older than the version I offer) : https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/03CHIPSET/MEUpdateTool_220.127.116.110_T.zip
Then install your latest BIOS : 0703 or 0801 RC.

Thank you for reply.
Could you please kindly clarify what is the ME Driver version that should work in tandem with ME Firmware Version 18.104.22.1680?
What is the relationship between the drivers available on the Asus download page for my motherboard and the drivers you are linking to?
Why are you recommending another ME Firmware than what the ASUS download page has?

This one : 222.214.171.124 WHQL (either via my thread linked previously or via this ASUS link : https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/03CHIPSET/DRV_MEI_Intel_Cons_ADL_TP_W11_64_V2229320_20220809B....)

When I compare the contents of the zip packages from the ASUS download link and yours for the 2126.96.36.199 ME driver, there is a difference - your packages has fewer folders and driver files inside them are not present in your package.
I am fine with trying drivers from other sources than ASUS, but when it comes to firmware, I feel very uneasy about it. How do you validate the firmware and drivers you provide? Can you guarantee that your ME Firmware will not brick my motherboard in any capacity? Are you associated in any way with ASUS R&D?

Thanks for your help MoKiChU and keep up the good work. Can you clear up a question please?
When I look on the Z690 Hero and Z790 Hero support pages, different versions of ME firmware and Windows drivers are offered (latest ME firmware v188.8.131.520 on the 790 support page and v184.108.40.2065 on the 690 support page).
I'm tempted to try installing the latest firmware/drivers from the 790 page on the Z690, but is that safe? If it is, why do ASUS not update all of their support pages at the same time? It seems strange to me, unless the flash software has to be motherboard specific?
