      Started having issues with my NUC last week where it would randomly freeze (No BSOD, just no movement of mouse/keyboard, and clock staying the same).  It got to the point where it wouldn't last a minute before freezing.  I saw today there was a BIOS update posted recently (81716), which I was hoping would solve the issue.  With Fastboot enabled, i was unable to hit F2/F7 to update the BIOS so I had to remove the Jumper cable, and use the .bio file from Intel.  It went right into the Recovery motherboard firmware update, but has unfortunately been sitting for about 15-20 minutes on Flashing image for Main Block Firmware.


      I've tried searching around, but the only info I have found has said to make sure not to turn off the computer while the BIOS is updating.  Any ideas?
