I have a HP Elitebook Folio that when it boots for a few seconds at POST it displays on the screen, in the upper left hand corner, in red letters on a white background the message "ME State in Recovery Mode". The message displays along with the HP logo for a few seconds and then the system boots normally into Windows. Everything runs normally and without issue.
This is apparently related to the Intel Management Engine. HP recommends updating to the current version which I have with no change. Everything appears to update and install without issue. No error messages. Nothing in the event logs that I can see (Windows 7 Pro x64).
Has anyone seen this before? Any suggestions on how to go about making the alert go away?
