    NUC OS Testing


      Making a list of compatable Linux distros that work out of the box on the following NUC's:

      NUC6i5SYH, NUC6i3SYH, NUC5i7RYH, NUC5i3RYK, and NUC5PPYH


      Each tested with both x86/x64.


      Installing Windows 7, see here: Easy Windows 7 install on ANY NUC?


      If there is no OS listed under "Issues:" then it installed just fine without hassle.

      Windows 7 Ultimate SP1

      Windows 2012 R2 server

      Windows 10



      Excluding WiFi Driver Issues:

      Lookup the Linux distro support for wifi issue solutions.



      Ubuntu- ethernet driver semi-broken, reports 100MB/s instead of GB/s. (on NUC 6th gen, not 5th gen)

      Windows 2012 R2 server- so many broken drivers

      Windows 10- Microsoft....everything....hate it.

      Tails: broken wifi, broken ethernet, broken audio drivers (all NUC's)



      Ubuntu- see my quick tutorial here: Re: nuc6i5syh only at 100mbps on linux?

      Windows 2012 R2 server- gave up, after rewriting the generic display driver, too much time taken up

      Windows 10- RUN FORREST RUN!!!

      Tails: refer to above fix for ubuntu, however audio still doesn't work


      Will do my best to continue updating the versions as they become available.
