    I did read elsewhere that they wont be releasing Bios Updates for Motherboards considered EOL (like the X99 Series) and that list would seem to confirm it , not a single MB listed , just pre-built systems and a few Laptops.
    Despite what I read earlier last week Asus has released Beta Bios's for many of the X99 Motherboards now ( April 26th) , so it maybe worth checking your MB Support Page to see if one has been released.

    Although their News Page is dated Jan. 5th , the MB Table has been updated...

    BTDisabledBySystemPolicy: False

    BTIDisabledByNoHardwareSupport: False

    BTIDisabledBySystemPolicy: False -> ensure not disabled by policy.

    BTIDisabledByNoHardwareSupport: False -> ensure OEM BIOS/firmware update is applied.

    I'm stuck until I upgrade my hardware. *Sigh*.

    After applying the patch for my CPUID: 306C3 from the Microsoft Update Catalog, this is the result I got using the PowerShell command line instead of the GRC's graphical utility InSpectre:

    I'd rather have the BIOS/UEFI firmware update from HP Support page or Intel, but so far they have not released any.

    @johngalt Try to contact with EVGA. They might release a new bios for your motherboard. I'm betting you're a EVGA fan.

    As for ASRock users, please kindly visit Forum - [OFFER] ASRock Gen 2-3-4 Meltdown-Spectre Fixed Efi's (Credited to @7alvoo)

    OF: My first ever EVGA GTX 1070 SC is flawlessly without any issue.

    Core i7 965 Extreme Edition - Intel hasn't (and won't) released microcode for the Bloomfield CPUs, and I posted quite a while back about eVGA's response when asked about updated BIOS - they said they needed source code from Intel for the X58-based motherboard family BIOS.

    I decided to take a chance and download/install the latest "spectre" bios update for my HP laptop after having a rough experience the last time with another computer (which I believe may have just been a coincidence) and all seems well.

    No noticeable slowdown and temperatures are good and computer is silent. Yay!

    Where did you get the BIOS update for your lappy?. Is it from HP Customer Support page?. The reason why I am asking is because Inspectre gave me the green light for everything before April 2018 Update:

    Now, after installing April 2018 Update, I've got this:

    I knew that was going to happen. That's why at the bottom of my post # 643 (above), I did mention:
    "I'd rather have the BIOS/UEFI firmware update from HP Support page or Intel, but so far they have not released any."

    Yes I got it from the HP software download page for my specific HP laptop model. That bios has been available there for a while but I just didn't want to deal with it. It came out in March 2018. They have an even newer one from a few days ago that fixes memory module install blue screen issues but I installed the March 2018 one which has an "important security update". Maybe I'll do the April 2018 one soon.

    Update: I installed the April 2018 bios and all is fine.

    I haven't installed any Microsoft microcode stuff (which has also been available for a while) just the new bios update today and now I appear to be good when before that bios install I wasn't.

    Hi,

    I haven't installed any Microsoft microcode stuff (which has also been available for a while) just the new bios update today and now I appear to be good when before that bios install I wasn't.
    Once your bios/uefi has been updated to mitigate against Spectre there's no need for any OS based patches.

    Cheers,
