Lately I worked with Nicola Corna on disabling the intel ME, following
the results of Trammell Hudson.
We also made a python script that removes all the partitions but FTPR
and the corresponding entry in the FPT table, the results boots fine on
a Sandy Bridge X220 & X220t but leads to a brick on Nehalem X201.
You can find more details here along with the script
