  • Hi grsgt,

    Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) allows companies to manage their networked computers easily. You may access Intel® Management Engine BIOS Extention (MEBx) using the 'F12' button at the startup of computer when you see Dell logo on the computer screen and configure iAMT.

    Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any questions.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • When i press 'F12', i see boot menu and list of other options: Bios Setup, Diagnostics and Change Boot Mode Settings. There is no option MEBx. I have a bios revision A07.

  • MEBx is not on all systems AND if someone chose to Disable it then it cannot be RE enabled EVER AGAIN.

    MEBx is also not available in all countries. This is what it looked like on the 755
