Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
I was trying to replicate this issue today, I plugged a SD card on the NUC but I was able to access the BIOS, I did not experience this problem.
Is it possible for you to try different SD card?
You can try to do a BIOS recovery as well to the same latest version 0042, please check BIOS Recovery Update Instructions for Intel® NUC
Please let me know.
