Title: ME_RCVR (ME Recovery Jumpers)
Post by: toomanylogins on March 19, 2020, 10:36:31 am
I am trying to revert the BMC firmware on my MU-70 motherboard to defualt. Does anybody know what this jumper does before I try it. 

ME_RCVR (ME Recovery Jumpers)

There is no description in the manual of what ME Recovery means ?
Thanks

Greetings,
I thought you were going to contact support regarding the BMC and lack of function after upgrade to R10.  What every happened?

There is nothing in the product manual beyond location of the jumpers above the second PCIEx slot.  They are for the Intel ME, but nothing about what happens when they are enabled.  Documentation is lacking.  57 is listed as a LED in the manual …  57 LED_BMC1 BMC firmware readiness LED - Page 8 , but its obviously a slot.  You really need to engage support.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply.  I posted a support request a week ago but no reply for obvious reasons.  Managed to work out that this jumper is for the Intel Management engine so it's unrelated to the BMC firmware. Still don't have a solution the workstation boots but it just takes about 8-10 minutes whilst the motherboard is trying to load the firmware before it gives up and loads the BIOS.
Cheers
