All you need for intel AMT to work is a compatible chipset(which they are all post SB) be using intel GPU, and intel NIC. it must also be configured in the bios. For those of us that build our own PC's this is unlikely to effect us, but we are the vast minority. For those that use pre assembled dell, HP, insert OEM here laptops/computers(the vast majority) this is more of an issue as most of them have this enabled by default to aid in tech support. And some OEM's even remove the ability for the user to adjust AMT settings by changing the default bios password and not allowing end users to change intel AMT settings.How about reading footnotes for once?
I was referencing my own stubborness first, bud.
