    I just finished updating my 1710 (PA71HS) with the latest Intel microcode they released on Jan 8. (Went from ver 5E to 80 for 7700HQ) and installed 16299.192. SpeculationControl shows that HW level protection is now enabled.

    You can do this now using VMWare's Microcode updater driver. Or you can use UBU to modify a BIOS file with the correct extracted bin and flash that. (much more work)

    Doesn't that remove Secure boot functionality? Because EFI Signing certificate is missed when you add custom menus and stuffs.

    I know that the files in the OP are for another vuln, but i thought that this thread was already hijacked for discussion about meltdown/spectre... so i asked about a "new" bios with updated microcode from prema :)

    All PremaMods published this year (revisions showing 01/01/2018+) already have the new code. If you have an urgent need for it, I would suggest to just update the code in Windows manually or wait for MS to force it on you via one of their next updates.

    Again, this has nothing to do with the patch discussed in the OP!
