SubjectRE: [PATCH] e1000e: bump up timeout to wait when ME un-configure ULP mode
Date
Hello Kai-Heng,
If you are using vPro system, ME LAN driver is always alive and you have no way to disable it until you build new BIOS. Is this also for Lenovo system?

Yes I can confirm Intel AMT is disabled BIOS menu. I think Intel AMT is ME in this context?
