          Hi, Thank you very much for joining the Intel® NUC communities.

          In regard to your inquiry, I was checking the BIOS options for boot on the NUC, and there is no option showing to boot from the micro SD card, the only options showing under “boot configuration” are: Internal UEFI/Shell, USB, Optical and Network boot. Just to let you know, the tests Intel did on the NUC were done using Windows as the only operating system on it at stock configurations, however, I will do further research on this matter in order to confirm if there is an option to boot from the SD card. As soon as I get any updates, I will provide all the details on this thread.

          Also, I encourage all the peers viewing this forum that if they have any information related to this subject to post all the comments and suggestions on this thread.

          Any further questions, please let me know.

          Regards,
          Alberto

            Thanks for your quick response

            I hope this can be solved because it was important to decide which Intel NUC model to buy. I wanted to buy the one I have NUC7I3BHN or NUC 6i3SYH, both with SD card reader, one micro SD and the other SD normal size.

            Do you know if the NUC 6i3SYH can boot from SD reader with another OS?

            In the forum nobody has commented yet.

            Do you think if this is a bug or forget in BIOS of this NUC model, and if can be fixed with a new future BIOS update?

             

             

            Thanks and best regards from Barcelona

              You are welcome. To answer your question, I just wanted to confirm that there is no option to boot from the SD card, we tried to replicate this scenario in our lab and the SD card will not be recognized as a bootable device by the NUCs regardless of the OS installed on it.

              Let me apologize for any inconvenience.

              Any questions, please let me know.

                  , You are welcome. In regard to your question, unfortunately, none of the Intel NUCS are capable of booting from the SD card, at this point there is no official information stating that this feature will be added in the future, let me apologize for that, but I will send your feedback to the proper department so they can be aware of your comments.

                  Any questions, please let me know.

                      You are welcome. Your feedback was already sent to the proper department. For any updates, please visit our web site, where you will be able to verify all the BIOS versions available for your NUC, in the case maybe a new BIOS version is released that supports that feature:

                        Hi,

                         

                        I have the same problem. I bought the nuc 7i3bnh and can't boot from sd card with the bios version 46. It seems you are not correct by saying that no nuc boots from sd card see this video: Booting NUC dengan SD Card untuk Instalasi OS - YouTube . I think it was possible in bios v 36 but it is impossible to downgrade now to check. Please fix this bug, every new computer can boot from sd card. I am sad and angry because of this inconvenience. Please guide me if I need to inform anyone else to get it fixed.

                         

                        All the best,

                              : Yes, I sent your feedback to the proper department so they can be aware of your suggestion, but just to let you know, it is up to them, to the BIOS team, to make the decision of creating a new BIOS that supports that feature or not. I do not want to give you false expectations, this is not for sure, so the best thing to do will be to keep checking our web site, if by any chance a new BIOS gets release, you will be able to see it there.

                              Any questions, please let me know.

                                  : In regard to your inquiry, there are no updates, it is not possible to boot from the Micro SD card with the NUC. If you need further assistance on this matter or any other subject, please submit your inquiry on a new thread, the reason for that is that every scenario is different, even if the same product is being used, so, for us to better assist you please submit a new one:

                                    I am upgrading from a NUC5CPYH to a NUC7I3BNH. The NUC5 is most definitely booting off of its SD card without difficulty. But the NUC7 refuses to boot from its SD card. This is a change to the behavior - NOT legacy behavior.

                                     

                                    Here is a link to the install guide I followed before and attempted to follow again clearly documenting an install onto an SD card for boot. I can guarantee it worked.

                                     

                                    Intel NUC as Plex Media Player Client: Setup Guide

                                     

                                    If Intel is going to change the way its products work, at a minimum customers would expect some documentation in the sales literature, to prevent people like me from buying a useless microSD card as the boot disk, and then finding it doesn't work.

                                     

                                    But I don't understand why the NUC does not boot from the SD card. Seems normal functionality and expectation of your users.

                                     

                                    Thank you for Alberto being so responsive and taking the brunt of these comments. You are our only communication vehicle. Keep sending the comments to the "proper department", and let them know it is a lie that NUCs can't boot from an SD, its just the new ones that can't!
