Thank you for sharing your findings. I am glad to hear that you were able to resolve your issue.
Just bear in mind that Intel does not test and validate Intel® NUC on Linux; however we know that a lot of NUC owners are using it successfully on many different Linux distros. Intel suggests you check your Linux distro's website and forums at Debian -- Support for peer assistance with this issue.
