Enabling Intel SGX options in BIOS

Q: Enabling Intel SGX options in BIOS

How do I enable the Intel Software Guard Extensions in BIOS? My chip is an Intel Core i7 6500U which supports SGX; BIOS was just upgraded to 1.15, but SGX Platform Software installation fails with the error "This platform is not SGX-compatible. Please check your SGX BIOS settings." There are no SGX-related settings in the BIOS menu.

Preferred Solution: Enabling Intel SGX options in BIOS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have picked up a fairly old PC with an Intel desktop mainboard and the bios is not accessible with the usual "delete" at boot up . I believe there is a switch on the board that i need to activate. I cannot find one - please does anyone know what i should be looking for and where about it might be positioned. Thx for any help.

A:Enabling BIOS with Intel Mobo

It might as well be insert or F2 key that you have to press. The manual will help.

I really doubt th switch on the mobo thing. It would be ridiculous to force people to open up their computers (voiding the warranty) to change a BIOS setting.

A neat trick is to boot the computer without the keyboard to make the BIOS display an error message and tell you what key to press to get into setup.

Hello, I have recently purchased Precision 3510 laptops with the intention of using them for research on Intel's new Software Guard Extensions (SGX). These laptops come with the required CPUs that support these new CPU instructions and (we thought) the required BIOS support as well.
In the BIOS for the laptops, there is an option for enabling SGX, but when enabled we are not able to install any of the official Intel SDKs on Windows OR Linux. Additionally, we ran an SGX test program that would dynamically detect the SGX features using CPUID and Machine Specific Registers (MSRs). It successfully detected the SGX hardware support (i.e. the SGX instructions are physically on the CPU chip), but it showed that the BIOS flags controlling the startup of SGX were not enabled (possible SGX specific MSRs have not been set). The specific CPU flag that needs to be set is described here: https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware . Here is a quote from that page that describes what is needed for SGX to work, "The CPU and the motherboard BIOS must support SGX. SGX is turned off by default and must enabled via MSR.IA32_Feature_Control.SGX_Enable. Only the BIOS can make changes to the IA32_Feature_Control".
For reference, we are using the latest BIOS version for our model - version A07. Also, the CPU we have is the Intel Core i5 - 6300HQ CPU @ 2.3GHz. 
I hope we can resolve this issue in a timely manner as we are not able to use these laptops for their intended purpose... Read more

I have a work laptop and want to use it at home. Unfortunately it has been set up to only use the proxy server at work and the internet options under tools is greyed out. Is there a way of enabling this so as to use my home broadband connection?

Thanks for any help

A:Enabling Tools/internet Options

If your company's IT department set it up that way it is probably due to a company policy.

If the computer belongs to them so does all data on it, and the reason they prevent internet connections they can't monitor is because you caould sent their proprietary data to others or a hacker could get into your computer while online.

You might be risking your job circumventing their policies.

Hi all, I have a T410 that's from 2010 with the i5 520m cpu. I bought it used recently and I don't think the bios has ever been upgraded. When I follow the regular instructions of entering BIOS --> Config --> CPU, I saw a menu of four choices. The bottom two wereIntel(R) Virtualization Technology [DISABLED]Intel(R) VT-d Feature [DISABLED]I tried to change them, but strangely the menu only let me navigate through the first two choices (I can't recall them exactly now but they didn't seem to have anything to do with virtualization), nothing seemed to allow me to access the bottom two choices...  How should I go about fixing this properly?  I want to be very careful with upgrading/flashing BIOS as I really don't want to end up with a brick Thanks

A:Enabling Intel VT-x in a T410

Look for your BIOS Version and post it(You can find it on the start page of your BIOS)VT-x is supported by your CPU, but maybe there are conflicting settings..Maybe you really have to update the BIOS but that shouldn't be a real problem...Use a disk image, hook your thinkpad to the power and let it be for 20 minutes or so...

Hello everyone!
Recentl I decided to experience with a new PLC program software from a company called Beckhoff.
The program is called TwinCAD and I am using the free version of it which runs through Visual studio 2013.
When I try to run a project solution I get an error saying that Intel VT-x is not enabled in my BIOS. 
I downloaded the latest version of compatible BIOS in my computer.I searched in BIOS for this feature but all I found is a "virtualization" choice and that was already enabled. I  downloaded the Dell CCTK configuration wizard and enabled the VT-d option in there as well.
In the specifications of my laptop it says that VT-x is provided but I cannot make my program to work.
Can any of you please tell me what else to do?

Hi Playbub
'input not supported' would normally indicate that either the resolution or the frequensy that you have set for the card are not supported by the monitor, you can check this by starting in safe mode or in vga mode, in these modes you computer will start with the ms default drivers and settings

A:Enabling USB 2.0 in BIOS

John - I'm not familiar with your motherboard or BIOS, however my first suggestion would be to head over to the ASUS website (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx) and download updated drivers. There's an update under the Utilities category called "Microsoft KB817900 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP." Try that.

I would also make sure that your BIOS is the most recent version.

Let us know if that corrected the issue.

I got an emachines computer last year, and it came with onboard video. I bought a PCI card, and it worked just fine. I was looking for an upgrade, so I got a new AGP card. The computer will not pick up the card (and yes, it has an AGP slot), and nowhere in the BIOS can you enable AGP. Looking for a new BIOS seems to lead me in circles from site to site...and I'm not really knowledgeable when it comes to messing with the BIOS.

I can hopefully give more information if needed...but at this point I don't really know what to post to help anyone.

Despite the warnings, I tried enabling RAID in BIOS (Intel chipset) and almost fried my Win 7 installation. So, I now believe for myself that the only way to enable RAID is to also reinstall Windows 7.

Does anyone know whether a data partition on the Windows boot drive would be affected?

Are there any clear advantages to RAID in a one-drive system? (I did not see a way to enable NCQ).

A:Enabling RAID in BIOS

I looked into old RAID technology because of the many problems it is giving with Win7 installations. It can require reformatting the drives with loss of data to set up RAID.

It also needs two drives to be RAID, I believe, as it is redundant array.

RAID is completely redundant IMO with drive imaging now even built into Windows 7. Best to set up modern AHCI config of your SATA controllers.

Just load the AHCI drivers from your mobo CD/Downloads page into the installer.

I'm sorry for posting such a horrible mistake. I'll just break it down really easely and hope for someone to be kind enough to resque my stupid ***.

I just upgraded my OS from W7 to W10 doing a clean install and figured out I had to install a bunch of essential drivers all over again, so I though it would be a good idea to start out with my motherboard. My motherboard is a "P45 NEO-F", so I went over to it's support page (link) to download all of the latest drivers and utilities for that model. Then I saw the "BIOS" section, and thougt I should flash the BIOS first of all, for no reason. So I downloaded the "AMI BIOS 4.4", which was the latest one, extracted the files on to a USB-stick, booted the whole thing up, went to M-FLASH in BIOS, chose the "A7519IMS.440"-file on the stick, flashed the BIOS, rebooted and now I get a "bad checksum".

I didn't even take a backup of the old file from BIOS, because I couldn't even think of this not working. Bonus points for that!

So what do I do now, being the sorry sod that I am?

Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480)

I just bought a refurb Dell XPS 420 w/ Q9300, running Vista Home Premium x64 and downloaded/installed an activated version of Win 7 Ult x64 on an 80GB SSD [Sata1] I bought for it; dual booted w/ Vista x64 on old hard drive [Sata0].

W7 x64 was running stable and instantly fast, I wanted to enable RAID0 on the old hard drive [Sata0] and another new hard drive [Sata2]

I entered Intel Maxtrix Storage Manager (Ctrl-I), creating a RAID0 volume on [Sata0] and [Sata2].

After reboot, it says "No boot device available" after BOIS screen.

My subsequent boot attempts include (roughly in order):
1. disable RAID0 volume, boot to [Sata1]
2. disable [Sata0] and [Sata2], boot to [Sata1]
3. disable [Sata1], boot to CD/DVD-drive (W7 install/boot)
4. disable CD/DVD-drive, boot to USB flash (W7 install/boot)

I have done some digging around and cannot seem to find a solution. I have the use of my notebook (w/ broken DVD burner, still reads) running Win7 Ult x86 so apparently I cannot make my USB flash drive x64 bootable from what I've read.

Hi, We have a script using the HP BiOS Utility to change the vtx setting but we are currently experiencing problems. This script has been developped by a 3rd party and its been succesfully tested on multiple HP Models. In our environment, we are using the following HP workstations:HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFFHP Compaq 8200 Elite SFFHP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF By default, our BIOS doesn't have any password, the script will run the HP BIOS Utility with admin privilege, add a temporary password, enable the Vtx setting and remove the password. On the next reboot, we will run our software that needs vtx enable but the program will not see  that vtx is enable. If we enter the BIOS manually,  the Vtx setting will be enable, the only way that the software will recognize that vtx is enable is if we do another change to the BIOS and save that change.  It seems like Windows is not seeing the change that the BIOS utility did.  The intriging part is that on some machines, the script will work and the software will see the change. We have run the script numerous times, on multiple machines and on our different models but we can determine any patern and identify why it sometimes work. I was wondering if this is a known issue and if anyone already encoutered this. Thank you,

I ordered Thinkpad p70 with RAID 1 HDD's and planned on adding aftermarket m.2 drives (Toshiba OCZ RD400) to setup an m.2 SSD RAID 1 array... First machine they sent failed to recognize m.2 drives.  Now I have a replacement machine with BIOS version 2.08 that will recognize my m.2 drives without a problem, as long as the RAID option in the BIOS is disabled.  As soon as I enable it, it only recognizes the SATA drives and the m.2 drives disappear.  It's strange that when you select m.2 SSD RAID it will only recognize SATA attached drives and allow you to set up a "m.2 SSD" RAID volume with those drives... Very disappointed I can not setup a hardware RAID array with m.2 drives.  Even more disappointed with phone support... calling in is a nightmare where they just pass you back a forth between warranty (which only deals with hardware issues) and premium software support (which says they 'don't help with BIOS, only things inside Windows').   Seems like a BIOS bug or some kind of hardware whitelisting... Does anyone else have a similar issue? I'd appreciate any insight on the matter.

I just got an HP h8-1237c, which has an i5-2320 processor. I thought it was a good move, but I need to run other copies of windows in VirtualBox, which I can do fine in my old ASUS i5 computer. This one tells me I can't because I can't enable VT-x, as there's no place on the bios to do this. HP tech support was not helpful at all, and I even had to define virtualization to the tech.

Is there a way around this so I can install and run a 64 bit OS on this new PC, such as Windows 7, 64bit, or even 64 bit linux?

Thanks for the guidance in advance.

In the Dell XPS 13 (9360). Using the latest BIOS 1.3.2 (but the old previous BIOS version was the same).

If you go to the "Fn Lock Options" under BIOS, there are 2 options, they are listed as:
  Lock Mode Disable/Standard   = The F1-12 Keys behave as function keys
  Lock Mode Enable/Secondary = The F1-12 Keys control the secondary functions.

These options are Swapped. If you disable the "Fn Lock" and set the mode to "Lock Mode Disable/Standard", log into Windows, and Press F1, it will then MUTE the system. Even though it should act like an "F1" Key.
If you go back into BIOS, set the mode to "Lock Mode Enabled/Secondary", log into the system and Press F1, then the Help comes up.

The options are swapped on these two configure options. Please update the text in the BIOS to match the appropriate configuration. Thanks. I've included a ScreenShot of the BIOS options. "Fn Lock" does do what it describes (disables Fn-Esc). Doesn't matter if u turn this on or off. If you have it set up as I do below, the Fn Keys are set for the proper Function (F1-F12) operation. However, the text says it should do its secondary functions in this mode.

Greetings Everyone,

My laptop suddenly shut down and sometimes showing Whea_Uncorrectable_Error(BSOD) on loading while logo shows up but when I disable the second core and set it to "always low" my laptop boots normally. I tried to reinstall the heat sink with new Thermal Paste(maybe this is low quality TP) but still no luck

Some relevant info:
System specs: Toshiba Satellite L505-S6959, Windows 10 x64 Enterprise, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6500, 4GB RAM DDR2, Insyde Bios 1.50

Blue Screen View has red highlight on hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe

I think the cpu over heats or some software error
Please don't expect my reply immediately
Thanks for the reply in advance

Under the Virtualization Support bios menu I have the following options enabled:+Enable Intel Virtualization Technology+Enable VT for Direct I/O But when I enable Trusted Execution, the system will reboot, pass the POST screen, immediately restart, and then pass the POST screen again and lock at the Intel Storage Matrix screen. Is this the expected behavior with this bios option enabled, or is it a bios problem?

A:Latitude E6500 - Enabling Trusted Execution in bios causes boot failure.

What does it say the default factory setting is for that option on or off? If it says off keep it off and stop trying to mess with things you dont fully understand untill you read about bios options what they do and if the laptop benefits or supports such active functions.

I foolishly enabled the options in the BIOS system configuration - Drive tab trying to make an external eSATA cable recognised my spare hard drive. 
How the Dell E6230 will not boot and will not POST.
I am unable to access the BIOS to reset to default or to disable the SATA 4/5 toggles.
Is there any way to 

1. Restore the default BIOS settings
2. Flash the BIOS from a USB or CD to get the computer to reboot.
I have discovered that the BIOS is doing something to the RAM modules
pressing FN+POWER cause the Battery LED to flash white. All other LED are BLANK
The RAM modules when placed in another E6230 then refuse to work until a memory test is carried out to wipe them! 
This would go against everything I know about RAM modules not retaining information after powering off but this is what I found.
Thanks in advance.

Hi All, 
Tried to find a similar issue in the forums first. Forgive me if I this is a repeat afterall. 
I got an Optiplex 9010 I7-3770 SFF (VPro) used desktop recently to put into my cloud in the lab. Normally I simply check the cover again (AMT #1) and move on with the MBEx selection after F12 during boot. This one is not working as expected. Here is the sequence of events:
1. Power on the computer and F12 to get the boot options/list. 
2. I can see the Intel Management Engine BIOS Extensions option there. I select and press ENTER. 
3. Screen disappears, but comes back now "without" the Intel Management Engine BIOS Extensions option! At the top is states that "Note, some options have been removed as they are no longer valid.".
I have not seen this before. IF it is disabled, why show it... 
But in any case, the question I have is, how can I get this option to work so I can provision this box using Intel AMT/MBEx settings. The machine is enabled for MBEx (AMT #1 on the inside chasis cover). 
The BIOS revision for this box is A14. I may need to update it as well. Though I am going to wait for any responses before doing so. 
Thank you all.

I bought a backlit keyboard for my latitude 6420 which was only equiped with a non backlit model at the time I got it.
When hitting Fn + >, nothing happens. I read many things on the web and it looks like we have to go into the BIOS and enable the backlit. I've been told that I should find the menu under System configuration and Keyboard Illumination but I don't have this menu...
I also had a look and the hot keys and don't have the ones related to the backlit keyboard... Looking at the Control Panel, Keyboard Properties, I don't have the Backlight tab, "Keyboard Brightness".Does someone know how I can enable my backlit keyboard and have it detected as such?
Prior buying the backlit keyboard, I got in touch with the Dell support to make sure I can upgrade my notebook with a backlit model without facing compatibility issues. They told me that I just needed to order the backlit model as a spare part and it will work... but it doesn't...
Does somebody know how I can get the backlit keyboard working or is it just a bad luck and it will never work? thanks in advance for your help!

A:Missing BIOS activation menu for enabling backlit keyboard on latitude e6420

Not sure if this question has been answered but, while I came here looking for the answer I accidentally figured it out on my latitude e6410, hit the function key and the right arrow, it was lumped there with the scree brightness.

Trying to see why there is a difference when using an Acer R240 monitor on my Acer E5-575 laptop.  I get a difference in screen quality between HDMI out and VGA out.  I have bought two of these monitors and want the excellent output that the VGA output gives versus the HDMI output.  How do I access options for the Intel graphics card?  Read that the card may be sending television quality to the monitor versus graphics quality.  How do I access these options? Thanks,-phil

I got a acer travelmate 2480, Just wondering the possibility of at all upgrading the processor,

did some checks, and intel nor acer will confirm whether it takes anything beyond celeron. Pin layout is confusing because I think it is based off the old pentium M 478 pins if I'm right.

if thats true then I should at least be able to handle a pentium at 478 pins with 533 FSB, or a core solo at that same rate.

If anyone could give me some insight it would help a lot

Purchased an identical SSD to what came stock with the machine.  Have been trying to get a RAID1 set up but the Intel RapidStorage that came installed seems to be somewhat proprietary and has no RAID option at all.  Running win7 pro 64. I did try to update the Intel Rapidstorage and it would fail to install and had to use system restore to get back.  I also had changed the values in my registry of the proper drivers and changed my BIOS setting to RAID. It seems very silly that a workstation would not have a RAID option ready to go. Any help on how to get my SSD's in a RAID1 is appreciated.  Thanks

A:Intel Rapidstorage For HP Zbook 17 Has No RAID options

I would actually also like an answer to this question. It seems even slightly shady, considering that I've found no options regarding RAID in the BIOS settings, and the advertising material for the Z17 G2 mention quite plainly that the laptop offers RAID 0, 1, and 5 options, which are also shown in the official HP leaflets. As such I would have thought that the systems would come with RAID at least enabled on startup if not set up already. I can think that this is simply a mistake on the part of the supplier through which our new computers were procured, but even then correcting the mistake should not be impossible. I'm trying to get in touch with our supplier about the mistake, but I'd also like some official answer as to how the RAID functionality can be activated before I start using the computer as afterwards the creation of the array will be much more difficult.
