error sending End of Post message to ME: HECI disabled

Dell / Xps 8900

Specs: Windows 10 Pro, 32 GB
I've had a couple of blue screen errors recently on my Dell. I don't know what they were since I didn't see them (and nothing in my "minidump" folder), just that when I left my PC and came back to it later, apparently sometime in the boot process, when I saw this error:

"error sending End of Post message to ME: HECI disabled, proceeding with boot!"

Does this mean that there's a problem with Windows or something else?

Seems like a BIOS problem, possibly a corruption. You might have to update the BIOS, which unfortunately can be risky. I think the best bet might be to get onto Dell and seek their advice on this one.

As you probably know, BIOS is not part of Windows proper and borders on hardware.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Press F2 when booting to open BIOS. Look in Security and Disable AMT.
