    @Prema Thanks for the ME FW update, it worked splendidly. I made a guide for those using BGA Alienware's using Skylake HQ/HK users on 15 r2/17 r3.
    New BIOS for 15R2/17R3 v1.4.4

    And this is double true if you use other facilities such as Intel's SGX.

    Intel ME is needed on production platforms.

    The HAP bit, even if set, is not some magic bullet that automatically disables ME. If unsure on how to proceed, consider disabling ME on consumer SKUs as deliberate crippling. For one, consumer SKUs do not have the management engine provisioned for AMT, making them immune to SOL attacks over the network.

    And related, this thread on Reddit might help you to understand how and why System76 go "out of band" with their systems: https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/6kn82m/ability_to_install_system76s_drivers_nvidia/djnbiuj/
