I've tried holding CTRL-P while starting the system, mashing it repeatedly as fast as I possibly can immediately after hitting the power button, hitting it after the POST screen appears, mashing it somewhat slower while hitting the power button, I've tried strategically hitting it the instant the POST screen hits the screen (like timing it out)... Basically every combination you could think of.
Hhmmm... I am having no problems entering and having the CTRL-P be accepted (though I have never provisioned it)...
Here's what I suggest you try. First, enter Visual BIOS and use F9 to reset the BIOS Configuration to defaults. Exit Visual BIOS with a save and then try to use CTRL-P. If this doesn't work, go back into Visual BIOS, click on Advanced, then Boot and then Boot Configuration. On the right-hand side, set Expansion Card Text to Enable. Exit Visual BIOS with a save and then try to use CTRL-P.
Hope one of these helps,

It is great to hear that you were able to find the option to access MEBX to enable AMT by doing a BIOS reset on the NUC.
