Detailed description:

I have ASUS Vivobook 15 R542UQ-DM153 with X542UQ.311 bios with intel i5 7200U Processor Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB GDDR5 VRAM

On the 01st October 2022, I updated Intel Management Engine firmware Version on windows 11 Enterprise 64bit 22H2 build no 22621.608 Preview

I am not recommending users to update without consulting the laptop or desktop motherboard ASUS Technical Support Person.

There are different types of firmware depending upon the intel processor generation.

This Intel Management Engine Firmware directly updates the intel processors and will be lifelong. Future firmware can be upgraded only it releases. Downgrading firmware is not available.

Be careful before updating, I and below site users and admin are not responsible for damaged caused due to updating.

Updating Incorrect firmware will damage the processors. Even it won't boot or the laptop won't power on.

This firmware is not available on the ASUS support website for X542UQ. I took a risk and updated Firmware by own.
