Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
Intel hasn't validated these operating systems with this unit but we have reports by owners of Intel® NUC Boards and Kits that Linux* Mint* is compatible, except for this recent LinuxLite 3.2, we have not received reports.
We recommend you use the latest kernel. If you need assistance with Linux* on Intel NUC, check your distro's website and forums for peer assistance.
Or you can wait to see if somebody else has been able to install and use this version of Linux without problem and they may share the information for us on this post.
