I think that problem is not SA-00086 🙂
Thank you, thank you, @Elkmar sir! I'll look into this later this evening, first chance I get. I fired up my laptop (HP Spectre x360
, from 2017) to verify and that said "This system has been patched"
- HP Spectre x360 - 15-bl112dx
- Intel Core i7-8550U (1.8 GHz base frequency, up to 4 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)
- 16 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (2 x 8 GB)
- NVIDIA GeForce MX150 (2 GB GDDR5 dedicated)
- 512 GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD
Not sure exactly what motherboard it has, but i've gotten a recent BIOS / firmware patch directly from HP, which seems to have resolved the issue, however I'm struggling to patch this on my desktop.
EDIT: Currently running IMEI firmware version: 1910.13.0.1060 from March 4, 2019. -- so this is something we can directly download from Intel's website? I was skeptical of using the mega download link location, prefer to use official sources when possible. This tool, suggests we can only get these from our motherboard manufacturers?
