My HP desktop AIO HP 23-q105a, was staying on BIOS screen for ages with the following error
"Management Platform (ME) in Manufacturing Mode
Executing POST delay
Press the ESC key for startup menu"
There is a good 2-3 min wait before the computer starts to boot.
How do I clear this error.
I've searched the forums but not solution or suggestion has worked. the only recommendation is to take it to a HP dealer for them to run a quick "tool" to fix the issue.
I'm an IT consultant & was recommending HP to my clients (for Windows PC's) but this issue and a few clients machines going bad in the last 2 years when within the 1st year / warranty is making me doubt whether I should consider another brand !
Hoping someone can help.

@MacManInOz Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that you are getting Management Platform (ME) in Manufacturing Mode Executing POST delay
Press the ESC key for startup menu error.
Do not worry. I will try to fix the issue.
Please update the ME drivers and check.
Also, please update the BIOS.
Keep us posted,

I get the following error re ME update
Error 8193: Fail to load MEI device driver (PCI access for Windows)
Above error is often caused by one of below reasons:
Administrator privilege needed for running the tool
ME is in an error state causing MEI driver fail
MEI driver is not installed
