Thanks Big Dave, maybe we should leave it open until the original poster, Gruff, indicates this is a solution for him?
Looking back at his original post, he had already given the Hardware ID:
That is exactly the same as mine. All he needs to do is go to Intel site and search for a driver for Management Engine Interafce device, MEI. There are four to choose from. I just chose the newest and it works.
Good luck, Gruff!

Hello, I'm actually working with a Lenovo ThinkPad but the issue is the same.
I think I've solved my situation, being a non-corporate user and wanting to disable AMT and uninstall all the Windows components. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Laptop came with Intel AMT pre-installed (Intel AMT 6.0 - Management Engine Interface and Serial Over LAN driver (SOL) Driver for Windows 7) Containing these components:
Intel AMT Manageability Engine components
- Management Engine Interface
- Serial Over LAN (SOL) Driver
- Local Manageability Service (LMS)
- Intel Management and Security Status (IMSS)
- User Notification Service (UNS)
1) I disabled the Intel Active Management option in BIOS
2) Using Windows Uninstall Programs, the Intel Management software. is listed, and the uninstall routine seemed to do a great job of removing all components.
3) However, this left an Unknown device in Device Manager (with the following hardware IDs for reference):
4) Windows now boots with notification the unknown device was found. Don't want to see that, don't need to use the AMT so,
5) Disabled the (now) Unknown device within Device Manager.
6) Windows is happy, and seems clean and free of any negative effect.
This seems like a solution for anyone who doesn't need AMT running, since it's specifically for (corporate IT departments) to remotely manage and secure PCs. Also, like most people, I'm trying to reduce the number of (unneeded) programs and services running in Windows.
Can anyone comment as to whether there is anything about my actions that might have an unseen negative effect?
Again, I don't need AMT on a personal computer. Thanks for the input (and perhaps this might help others encountering similar issues.)

This was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Installing Windows XP Pro on an HP Pro 3130 (downgrading from Windows 7). HP has XP drivers listed on their support site for this mode, yet they only have the audio and LAN drivers, AND those drivers don't even work (for example, the LAN driver they have is for an Intel 1000, yet the computer has a RealTek 8111DL). Nice HP, very nice.
Anyway, major Kudos to you!

Go into your device manager. Click on each missing device. Then click on the details tab. In the Properties drop down list, select the second item (hardware ID's).
Post the top string of characters you see listed. Those should identify the model and type of device.
Also, are you running windows 7 32 or 64 bit, and what is the full model # of your notebook G6-what?

tempreture sensors monitor the boards temp, cpu temp and sometimes even the harddrive look up on google a program called speedfan and it will monitor the temps of your computer and any device on the inside that supports it
