it’s well documented that Dell ships some devices with the ME HAP bit set in the flash descriptor, which disables the ME. This has been a documented feature of ME cleaner for years now. There’s no reason to believe this sticker is a trap of any kind, particularly if the MEI (HECI) PCI device is not visible to the OS.
First thanks for reply my message, I have not known much about Intel ME for years since I used ME cleaner for my desktop computer 4 years ago, and it is still my main desktop computer.
Anyway, I do not trust Dell computer. Purism is one of the few computer companies that I trust very much in their products. I currently interested in buy a Librem 14
If the update is limited to just the Intel ME, I wouldn’t bother upgrading it, but I doubt that the update will reenable the ME. Dell offered to disable the Intel ME for a $21 fee on certain laptops, so Dell would have angry customers if updates enabled something that customers paid to have disabled.
