    Has anyone successfully upgraded NUC6i5SYH from BIOS 28 to 39?


      Hello all!


      Has anyone successfully upgraded NUC6i5SYH from BIOS 28 to 39?  I have a NUC6i5SYH that has been operating on BIOS 28 without issue since approximately February 5, 2016.  After reading through the boards/issues here I'm tempted to keep the device on BIOS 28 but would like to take advantage of any critical updates. Below are system particulars to help others compare:
