Intel has rolled out new BIOS packages targeted at several of its NUC devices that promise to improve the units’ update function by disabling keyboard and power buttons during the flash/recovery process.
Before moving any further, you should know that Intel has provided BIOS 0029 and 0036 for its NUC5i5MY and NUC5i3MY NUC systems, respectively, as well as version 0054 compatible with the NUC5PGYH, NUC5CPYH, and NUC5PPYH NUC Kits.
In addition to that, the producer has also made available a 0044 BIOS update developed especially for its NUC6i5SYH, NUC6i3SYH, NUC6i5SYK, and NUC6i3SYK NUC kits.
To continue with the changes, these files will add new NVRAM preserved variables, hide NFC setup item, remove the NFC connection from the GPIO options, and update Visual BIOS to 2.2.20 (from 2.2.17).
Moreover, some of these devices will also receive changes and improvements for the Power Button menu and F4 Recovery. However, make sure to check the description page before downloading the BIOS for your specific NUC.
When it comes to installation, make sure to carefully read all available update methods and choose the one that’s best for you. Bear in mind that failing to successfully flash the BIOS can lead to serious malfunctions.
That said, download the appropriate package for your device by following one of the links below, apply it on your NUC, and constantly check our website to stay up to speed with the latest releases.
