    Using an officially Z170 supported CPU like 6th or 7th gen should bring your system back to life and let you reflash with whatever they are using.

    Back from the dead. Basically what happened there was sort of this. By flashing Premas security updates on Dsankes modified BIOS, Intel ME from 11.6.xxx got updated to 11.8.xxx, which caused a soft brick. Thanks to Premas advise got myself a cheapest 6st generation CPU of eBay. Laptop booted no problem. 60 quid. Re-flashed Dsankes BIOS and boom It works again Intel ME got flashed back to 11.6.xxx version. Laptop boots happy days. £4000 worth of laptop works again :D. BTW its BIOS.ROM not BIOS.BIN @dsanke

    You could flip the CPU on ebay again too.

    So, for my friend's sager 9870, he never did any of this

    1) I should get the 11.x IME file, get that done.

    2) Should I also get the INFINEON stuff as well? I don't recall what I did with mine exactly.

    3) From https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4497165, should I install "2020-01 Update for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64-based Systems (KB4497165)"?



    Much thanks!
