Open up the side panel and look at the white sticker on the underside. If you see the number 3 and ME Disabled or 6 & ME Lockout the Intel Mgt. Engine has been factory disabled. These will not work well if you want to use HD4000 graphics. It will cause problems with graphics acceleration that are not fixable without some very complicated BIOS hacks. You'll also have system freezes due to no IMEI device being present.
Hi trs96, thanks for chiming in. Was using an HP for this test regarding this thread.

I was working on coreboot, me_cleaner

jumper OFF/PUT 1 PIN Connected (nomal people) me management mode says AMT in the system information (works metal yay)

Now I need to flash back/reenable ME from my backup somewhere for my tianocore/coreboot board on Acer

Can anyone confirm Big Sur is working (graphics, sound, etc.) working with I7-i3770 Ivy Bridge hardware platforms:

  1. HD4000 iGPU?
  2. MSI Kepler GPU? GT 710 2GD3H LP
  3. Optiplex 7010 / HP ?
I am trying to understand if it is absolutely necessary to upgrade a pair of Optiplex 7010s with the MSI GT 710 2GD3H LP to run Big Sur
