I have a couple of the BP5e 240GB drives myself and I have had absolutely no issues with them.
First, before anything else, you need to ensure that you are running the very latest BIOS for your NUC. I will presume that you have this installed and the problem persists...
Next, we have to look at a number of possibilities:
- The BP5e is not properly seated. Remove the drive and then reinstall it, being careful to fully insert the drive into the M.2 socket and screw it down properly.
- There is a problem with the BP5e itself. Unfortunately, the only way to tell is to use the drive in another system.
- There is a problem with the M.2 socket. Need determination from #2 to conclude whether this is the possible source.
You'll have to do some investigation to determine your next-steps...

Let me know if Scott recommendations solve the issue.
