No, you cannot disable the splash screen - but you can replace the "Intel NUC" graphic with your own. You need Intel Integrator Toolkit to change the graphic. Intel has stopped making this tool available for download; you need to contact Intel Customer Support directly to request it.

I will be more than glad to assist you with your matter.
In regard to your concern, I would like to confirm if what you want to do it is for a company with multiple NUCs?
Or if it is one NUC, where you would like to remove the Splash Screen?
As soon as you reply, I will provide you further information.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
you for your reply. For now it is one NUC. This is a prototype
which will be tested and if passes it will be a production system rolled out to
manufacturing and we will replace the NUC splash screen with our logo.
Ordinarily we would not do this but in the devices we are building we had to
install the monitors upside down due to space limitations in the chassis.
We can flip the OS image so it is right side up but the boot screens are upside
down. In order to try to keep confusion to a minimum from our customer
base we would replace the NUC splash screen with our own logo but it will be
upside down on boot up which will look right side up to a viewer. I hope
I haven’t confused you too much.
Monitor flip seems to be a more and more common occurrence in Digital Signage applications. Unfortunately, the NUC's BIOS does not have support for this concept. The image that you choose could be flipped vertically, so that it appears properly in this situation. What cannot be flipped is the BIOS Function Key prompts; they will still be blindly displayed as if the monitor is right-side up. You can go into the BIOS and disable these prompts, but then the options for what you can do (and when) will be lost. In addition, if you do go into BIOS Setup (Visual BIOS), this will (also) be displayed upside down. If these are not considered to be problems, then you are good to go - if you have the ITK tool.
They are not part of the issue. All I need is the ITK and we can go from there. Thanks for your input though.
I was able to download it and I will try to use in the next few days. Thanks for all your help.
