    Sorry but that is not correct.

    The official beta BIOS F3p and F3t for X79-UP4 upgrade the ME Firmware to version 8.x

    Here are is the simplest method to update to latest version of MEI on your X79 variant Gigabyte motherboard:

    1. Update BIOS to the latest Beta BIOS, or the latest modified BIOS (I personally always use the latest modified BIOS by stasio)
    2. Download and install the latest MEI drivers (This is needed in order to properly communicate with MEI when updating firmware)
    3. Download Intel® Management Engine Interface(MEI) 8.1.40.1416 (Firmware) from HERE.
    4. Extract the firmware into a new folder, let's call this folder A.
    5. Open command prompt as Administrator.
    6. Navigate to folder A > Local-Win64 in command prompt.
    7. Run flash.bat
    8. Shut down the computer once fully flashed. Restart is not enough.
    8. Power on the machine and run command prompt as Administrator again and navigate to the meinfo64 folder and run info.bat. Assuming you have 64 bit OS. Otherwise run info.bat under meinfo for 32 bit OS. Make sure it says: "FW Version: 8.1.40.1416"
    9. Enjoy!

    Edit: I have updated the tutorial to be more fool proof.

    8. Install the latest MEI driver from HERE. At present I am using, Intel® Management Engine Interface(MEI) Driver 9.5.3.1520 without issues.
    9. Enjoy!

    The Intel Firmware Update Utility on the pictures you posted is reporting that you have the 8.1.10.1286 ME Firmware installed with BIOS F12u.
    Not being able to find the parameters might have something to do with how Gigabyte updated the ME Firmware.

    Try flashing to this BIOS:

    GIGABYTE Modified Bios

    That is what I am using.
