Yes. I'm talking about the same thing. (I think)

This is interesting. I didn't check the other x299 boards, but for the x299e-itx/ac, there was a UEFI update from last week. I downloaded it and installed it. However, after hearing about the restarts, I went to check to see if there was another update with the latest intel fix. It was here I noticed the UEFI/BIOS update I pulled last week has been removed. That is what I'm referring to.

I don't know if this is true from other boards as well, but do know for certain it definitely applies to the x299e-itx/ac.

Intel SA-00086 vs SA-00088 (to many similar numerals)

I believe the issue I originally was talking about is found at - https://www.asrock.com/microsite/2017IntelFirmware/

That update was to address the original issue that started this whole thing, correct?

So, the new issue, SA-00088, is to address the reboots caused by the UEFI update to fix SA-00086...

In either case, the x299e-itx/ac at one time had UEFI v 1.40. It looks like that has been pulled on the ASRock website by the suggestion of Intel.

Am I saying this correctly?

you kinda confusing me at this so some one else can correct me if i am wrong.

https://www.asrock.com/microsite/2017IntelFirmware/
This is the  MEI fix list in the first page of this topic.

But this topic got sidetracked into the Meltdown/Spec issue cause there is no sticky in reguards to this issue
http://www.asrock.com/Microsite/SA00088/

SA-00088 issues new Microcode updates to plug the whole Meltdown/spec  flaw. Some of Microcodes from this Updates are cause certain system to reboot. Those effect chips/boards are the ones that had Bios update pulled.

I am also assuming because this reboot issue Asrock has put pause on doing more bios update  for the new microcodes for the boards that still need them till intel sorts it out.

Honstely Asrock should make Sticky for the
http://www.asrock.com/Microsite/SA00088/
issue like they did for the  https://www.asrock.com/microsite/2017IntelFirmware/ Right now the Meltdown/spec issue is only listed in the News section of the site there no mention of on the forums.

OK. I'm pretty sure it's me that's confused. I thought the Spectre/Meltdown security issue *was* related to the Intel ME BIOS issue. In other words, didn't this hole in the ME BIOS issue lead the Google researchers to discover the Spectre/Meltdown problems?

Upon further reading, it looks like this is not the case. And it looks like the fix for SA-00088 will require both patches to the OS and an updated BIOS/UEFI.

But I'd like to get back back to my original question - I downloaded "X299E-ITXac(1.40)ROM.zip". IIRC, this mentioned it had an updated Intel Management Engine version for SA-00086 on the x299e-itx/ac. However, as of today this BIOS is no longer downloadable from ASRock. For what reason was it pulled? What should I be looking to do next?

it was pulled cause the reboot issue associated with some of the microcode that were released to fix the  SA-00088 issue from my understanding. cause Intel told Manufactures to stop  distributing them.


Most MB never got fix for the SA-00086 issued threw Bios update,  it was done threw  individual updates first page of this.

OK. Being that my x299e-itx/ac is not rebooting, I'm just going to leave its 1.40 BIOS/UEFI in place and wait for an updated one down the road.

@tsunami2311 - thanks for the discussion and enlightening me on the problem.

Unless you picked this up in early January, ASRock released UEFI/BIOS 1.40 for the x299e-itx/ac yesterday.

If you've already downloaded and installed this version before it was removed, there's no need to do it again. In fact, you won't be able to as the UEFI is the exact same one (binary equivalent) to the one from a few weeks ago.
x299e-itx/ac | i7-7820X@3.60GHz | 32GB - 4x8GB Quad Channel@3000MHz GSkill DDR4 | nVidia GTX 1060M w/ 6GB GDDR5 | Samsung 960 Pro 512GB | Samsung 960 Pro 1TB | 160GB Seagate Momentus | Panasonic UJ265
