HP Z238 Microtower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I replaced the motherboard of a Z238 Microtower with one that I found on eBay recently, because the audio device was disappearing at random.  The new motherboard shipped with the MPM unlocked.  After I entered the serial number, featureByte, Build number, SKU, etc, it was still showing that the system was not fully configured at boot.  So I downloaded the BIOS config utility and ran the following command that I found online for fixing this issue:

BiosConfigUtility64.exe /setvalue:"Manufacturing Programming Mode","Lock" /verbose

 

After rebooting, everything still works fine, and I no longer have the System Unique IDs option in BIOS setup.  But it STILL says the system is not fully configured and that it's not committed, even though it no longer says it is in manufacturing mode.  Everything works fine.  I am just wondering if this error is going to cause some sort of issue later (like if there's some grace period and then it stops booting because it's not properly configured)?  If not, I can just disregard this error, which only shows at boot time.
