Dell BIOS Intel SGX Option not Enabling CPU Feature

Q: Dell BIOS Intel SGX Option not Enabling CPU Feature

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 (SGX research).

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.

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.

Hello,
i own a vostro 3560 Notebook, i7, 8GB, 32GB msata and i replaced the HD by a Samsung 850 Pro SSD / 256Gb. Both ssds have been formated - i did not want to use the Intel rapid storage / start technology. The problem now is the following:
When i install Win 7 / 64 bit, this  only works in the "Intel rapid storage" mode (bios-option). If i try it with ata or ahci, the instalation hangs up after the first reboot at that point, the four windows- colours come together. There appears no bluescreen - the system only stopps.
I tried to renew the bios or changed it to version 13 and then back to V17 - but no sucess.
After i installed win 7 in this mode, I tried the regestry trick with the 0 instead of the 3 to load the ahci driver. I renewed the ahci-Driver manualy , and after that, i played with the ata driver in the same way. There always is the same result: the system freezes while booting when the colours come together. Now with  a blue-screen ;-).
The system only works, when in bios the irs-Option (instead ahci) is set.

Any ideas ... and sorry for my english ;-)

Joachim

According to the instruction guide, I should be able to scan or forward documents from memory to an email address.

I interpret "email address" as online, but according to Canon tech, this is not the case. The instructions do not differentiate between an internal email system or the www.

I have the POP and SMPT settings copied from MS Outlook, and I can send a test message to myself successfully through the www using Outlook. These same settings through the printer do not work.

I am also using an Actiontec GT724-WG DSL gateway, router and wireless interface. I matched the incoming/outgoing port numbers for router permissions in the gateway using the port numbers listed in the MS Outlook settings.

The Canon printer is connected using both the USB and LAN ports, and it functions either way, wired and wireless using the scan/print/fax functions.

At the very least, I *should* be able to scan to an email address, but that is not working... at least it is not forwarding to a www provider.

Can this printer forward to a www email address? Anyone know how to do it?

Or?

I would like to be able to forward faxes to my email address- that is the goal. This printer has a forwarding function if the document remains in memory.

Thanks

Hey all. I have a Dell 4500. No! This is not my fault. Kid number three went to college and crashed and burned. I had to repossess said puker. I mean puter. Any who I have a theory. I am thinking I am on to something as Dell will not allow my theory to stay on its "Ask us your hardest questions" forum for longer than two hours. I now know that this is a D845EPT2 Intel board. Its current bios string is pt84520a.10a.0020p.04.0209100915 This looks to me as if it is telling me that I have the a04 Dell version over the Intell p.04 bios. The 845e chipset should support hyper threading and a 3.06 cpu. Not knowing any better, I thought I would ask Dell tech support. Technical support rep 1 says no upgrade is available at all(I have a 2.4 in it now). Technical support 2 Rep says I have an 865 chipset(if that is true than this board will soon meet with a drop of water so that they can replace this board with another 865. Gee. I guess hyper threading would not be a problem then. Tech support rep three finally decided I have an 845e chipset which could go to 2.8(Sis squealed in delight at being right all along). I guess I am glad I didn’t have a glass of water near at hand. In any case, Dell's ao4 bios revision does not claim to support hyper threading. Yet all versions of the Intel 845e chipset supported hyper threading from the get-go according to Intel's product sheets.

A:Flashing a dell with an intel bios? Truth or dare

Me thinks you will kill the puter dead if you flash to a non Dell bios. There is most likely one that works, but you and I don't know which one it is and the wrong flash will screw you fast. I have an asus board with a crappy HP bios on it, but asus doesn't even list this board as one of theirs. The A7N8X is a great board and mine looks exactly like it. Mine is an A7N8X LA and I would love to kick HP off this machine forever, but the fear of what will happen if I pick the wrong bios holds me in check. Don't try it without another bios chip or mobo in mind as a possibility.

I have a Dell 8700 (Intel Z87 chipset) I recently purchased an Intel 600p SSD (M2) along w/ a PCI to M2 adapter.
While the SSD drive was recognized by Windows (10), it was not recognized by the BIOS.  My system is configured for legacy boot, and from what I've read a boot to a PCI SSD would only be supported by UFEI.  I'd be willing to reinstall Windows and change my boot mode, but, from all that I've read the current BIOS A11 on the Z87 w/ UFEI still would not support a boot to a PCI SSD.
Any chance there will be a BIOS update in the future, or would I need to go to a SATA SSD?

I am having my company laptop which has disabled wait time option for screen saver. the default setting is 15 min wait time for screen server. How can i enable it .. Pls help me on this.

A:XP Screen saver wait time option enabling

this is a really commonly asked question actually. I assume you mean you want to enable the disabling of the wait time option at all instead of putting in an utterly incorrect 9999 minutes lol. Apparently you open the screen saver settings on the display properties by right clicking on an empty spot on the desktop then clicking properties. Then go to the screen saver tab and either change the selected screensaver itself to None or type 0 into the wait time. Both will disable it.

EDIT: I actually just tried to type 0 in my own and it wouldn't let me. That's really odd as I'm pretty sure it used to work. So just change the screen saver selected to (none) which is the first choice on the list. This disabled wait time completely.

Hi all, I have a T410 that's from 2010 with the i5 520m cpu.

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

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...

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.

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 need to enable Wake on Lan in BIOS for 300 laptops. Is there a utility like Dell's DCCU that I can run an .exe to update the BIOS settings on these laptops. We currently using Carbon's and Yoga's.

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've been using Kaspersky Total Security with a Microsoft 7 Operating System.  I recently upgraded to Microsoft 10 and Kaspersky's "Safe Money"feature is unable to provide complete security protection for managing my financial matters, e.g. bank account credit cards, etc.     Kaspersky technical support indicates the issue is enabling the visualization within the BIOS, and recommended that I contact HP, the manufacturer of my PC for assistance as this falls outside the scope of Kaspersky support.  Additionally, is this a software rather than a hardware issue? Of course my device is no longer under warranty,  so I do hope someone can be of assistance. Many Thanks

I have two Lenovo T470s that seem to have lost the ability to access any of the Intel vPro options following a bios update using the Lenovo update tool.  When going to the boot menu (F12) there is no Ctrl+P option any more. There is also no mention of Inter MBEX in the Bios menus. During the Lenovo boot screen, I can press Ctrl+P and it will say "launching ME configuration screen" and then it will go into Windows. Full Model Number 20HGS4DJ00CPU i7-6700UBIOS Version N1WET49W (1.28) 7/4/2018

Hi!

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?

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. I also have 2-USB hard drives (80/250GB) and an eSata 2x docking station available, but no eSata on notebook.

Hope I gave enough info for someone to come up with an easy fix. If I could boot to the W7 x64 install DVD that I made with the non-booting PC, I would have just done a clean install by now, but it refuses to boot to the CD/DVD drive. It actually wouldn't even boot to DVD to install W7 x64 in the first place, I had to... Read more

A:no boot after enabling BIOS RAID0

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

You should be able to create a bootable USB for a 64-bit install using a 32-bit OS. Some users report challenges, but I suspect PEBKAC.

I believe that you stepped on your boot files on SATA0.

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.
