RE: XPS 8930 Bios Update Failure

You can always contact Tech Support. They may not have an immediate solution, but your problem will be logged, and if they receive sufficient numbers of reports about the same issue, it should get elevated to engineering to investigate.

Posting here also helps because other users may see a thread about their problem and post a "me too". And when volunteers here (Rockstars) and/or moderators (Dell employees) see multiple complaints about the same problem, an alert can be passed on...

RE: XPS 8930 Bios Update Failure

The 8930 is NOT listed on Dell's page for Bios update for Meltdown but other XPS (8920, etc) are listed.  

www.dell.com/.../dell-client-statement-on-intel-me-txe-advisory--intel-sa-00086-

I assume this is because Dell IS aware of the problem.  (I came here to ask why the 8930 is not in this list and saw this thread).

RE: XPS 8930 Bios Update Failure

The BIOS update to fix the ME (Management Engine) problem is not related to Intel's new CPU problems.

The BIOS update to 1.0.5 says it fixes the ME problem and does not even mention Meltdown or any other CPU issue. Don't know why it got deleted from the list at your link.

The Microsoft update to fix Meltdown etc was supposed to be pushed automatically by Windows Update today, though there seem to some issues with certain anti-malware apps preventing it from being installed.

EDITED
