Error: WHQL test fails at Intel Active Management SOL–(COM3)
Intel® Desktop Boards that support Intel AMT may fail certain WHQL tests with an error at Intel Active Management SOL–(COM3).
To successfully pass the WHQL tests, make sure you have a serial loopback cable connected to COM1 (some 965 boards have a COM1 pinout—you need to attach a dongle). When prompted that you don’t have COM3 loopback attached, select Ignore.
