    a few years ago i built a server, modded the BIOS with SLIC and used happilly Windows Server 2012 r2. Two weeks i decides to upgrade my Hardware to a i5-9600k on an asrock H370m-itx and to Change to Server 2019.

    I thought this would be as easy as a few years ago. but contrary

    I requested for a modified BIOS and got one.

    But due to Asrock security, i can't flash it:

    the older Version of afuwin makes my PC Freeze.
    the newer Version has no /gan option
    Intel FPT Fails with "error 20: cannot locat ME device"

    Maybe someone could help me?

    i would prefer to avoid kms. Via SLIC seems for me a "cleaner" solution. And i only have the german eval iso.

    Afudos scheint seit 2015 nicht mehr aktualisiert zu werden. Mit der Version ist es wie mit der alten Version von afuwin. Der Rechner stürzt leider sofort ab.
    Trotzdem danke für den Tipp.

    Concerning a other Asrock Mainboard Serg008 said:
    It seems that MOD can be flashed with SPI USB flash programmer only

    Is there any step by step tutorial for doing this on a AsrockH370-itx/ac?

    Have another look at FPT. You should be able to flash just the BIOS portion without ME.
    Code:
    fpt -f BIOS.ROM -BIOS
