I was trying to get info from Intel phone tech support
concerning a microcode update utility for one of my P4
processors. I was confounded with their total refusal to
provide any helpful info about availability of this utility.

Can anyone enlighten me as to a backdoor resource
for these update utilities?

thx

I received a email reply from Intel Processor Tech support
answering my question as to how I update the
processor microcode in one of my Intel motherboard /
processor machines. The machine was a D845pebt2
mb with a Intel 3.06c processor. The Intel tech guy
claimed that the microcode was upgraded ( if necessary)
by running the Intel (from their website) bios upgrade.

Well and good.

This machine has the ouboard audio and 100 mb
lan. I run the raid setup with two seagate sata
drives. It`s rock steady with Windows XP Pro.

P.S. The Intel Tech guy I talked to on the phone
suggested I take my machine down to dell or
someplace similar and have them run the upgrade
utility for me. I could see that.
