Will try in the morning.  Are one of these the "ME UPDATE" jumpers?  Left one says FLASH_OVERRIDE, top right BIOS WP??  Directly below is CMOS reset which is the only jumper setting I'm sure of.

Yes, with modded bios.  Board has everything removed from it other than essentials (hdmi to monitor on onboard display output, keyboard, mouse, and usb stick).  Tried it w/ the flash_override in both positions.  

There is only 2 files on the stick for the flash is that enough?  The FWUPDCL executable and the BIN file. I put them in a separate directory/folder than the DOS files.  There are no other driver files associated with the flash?

There is only 1 file, the executable.

Try do it from Windows command line with administrative rights.
Windows tool - \Intel ME System Tools v8 r3\FWUpdate\Local-Win\FWUpdLcl.exe
Also make a screenshot of MEInfo's results (\Intel ME System Tools v8 r3\MEInfo\Windows\MEInfoWin.exe)

Also just put back in the i7 and tried the ME commands, same error prompts.  Put in a different GPU as well to try and same thing, no boot just black screen and flashing _.
