In order to try to fix this issue and to answer your question, there is a newer BIOS version available for the NUC, please use the F7 method to install it:
Here is the .BIO file needed to do that, it is version 0362, latest:
Did you try to set the BIOS to defaults with F9 and then press F10 to save and exit?
This problem is it recently, did the SSD’s worked before?
In order for us to be able to better assist you, could you please get in the BIOS to the “Advanced” menu, look for the tab that says boot and take a screenshot of that? This is in order for us to be able to see how the SSD’s are being detected.
Also, please restart the NUC, and when it is starting up, press F10 several times, that is in order to get the boot menu, and also please take a picture of what you see there? This is to confirm the boot devices showing there.
Any further questions, please let me know.
- Right now, i am not in front of the NUC ; so there's no screen shots.
The link you advice for the newer bios, the below products compatible are :
- Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i3RYK
- Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH
- Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i3RYH
- Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i5RYK
- Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i5RYH
I can't see my model...
1/ Is it still OK according you ?
- Yes, i've already set up the bios to the default and already gave a try. But there's no result.
- With the UEFI mode only, i can boot with some USB devices :
i) with GNU/Gentoo LiveCD, it does not detected my USB device, neither the disks.
ii) with GNU/Ubuntu LiveCD, the USB device successfully booted ; the i can do the partionnment of the Disks to GPT partition. I can boot from the fresh Ubuntu install with UEFI.
iii) once the boot with Ubuntu successful, i install GNU/Gentoo and when i reboot the station, i setup to BIOS with F2 and i can't see the UEFI disk devices ; from here, i can't boot anymore
2/ Since there's no difference with the partionnment when booting from Ubuntu and from Gentoo, what's the problem with disks with UEFI mode ?
Thank you very much for letting us know that information.
In regard to your inquiry about the BIOS, yes that BIOS version also works with your NUC, even though you do not see the NUC listed in there.
Now, just to let you know, Intel tested the NUC using Windows, for testing purposes, do you have the option to test the NUC using Windows?
