I bought a new Elitebook 830 G6 with FreeDos installed. When I first turned on the notebook I received the following notification:
"Full Recovery of the Intel Management Engine Firmware failed, because the system was unable to find a valid firmware image file.
Intel Management Engine related functionality will be unavailable. Please install the latest version of Intel Management Engine firmware to complete full recovery."
I then proceeded to install Ubuntu 18.04, but this didn't solve the issue. Now I have this notification every time I turn on the notebook. If I click continue I get to the GNU GRUB menu, where I can choose to boot Ubuntu. Then the notebook works normally. However this procedure is extremely annoying and slow.
Can someone please help me?

'm sorry, but we here are not equipped to provide detailed Linux support.
HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with Linux, or add a Linux OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- as HP provides Linux assistance only on Redhat and then only to commercial customers.
The primary "challenge" to using Linux on any HP PC is the availability of Linux drivers. Any hardware that does not work will then range from simple (if there are Linux drivers available) to impossible (if there are NO Linux drivers available) to fix.
Since HP does not provide Linux drivers, your best bet for Linux support is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are using.

I have now deleted ubuntu and installed windows 10 instead. However the exact same problem remains. Each time I turn on the notebook, I get the same error message. After that now windows boots normally. I tried to update all Intel drivers for windows and analyzing the notebook with HPIA, but nothing worked.

I eventually solved the issue by
- I installed Windows instead of Ubuntu.
- Then I updated the BIOS with the download provided by this link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/hp-elitebook-830-g6-notebook-pc/26609813/...
(I first tried to update the BIOS with different support programs, which didn't work out.)
- Then, when rebooting the system the BIOS finally updated.
- Then I reinstalled Ubuntu and deleted Windows. Everything works fine since then.

Try the following:
- Go to https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/laptops
- Enter the serial number of your device. (You can find it at the bottom of the notebook.)
- Select Windows 10 on the following page as your OS.
- Download the BIOS and install it.
When you then restart your system the BIOS should update automatically. I hope, it helps. Good Luck!
