Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
I am sorry to hear you are having issues with your Intel® NUC.
On this Intel® NUC, there is only the following:
- eMMC internal/embedded storage which contained the OS (Windows® 10 Home + Product Key Code)
- M.2 connector type E that was prepopulated with Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 module. This connector only supports wireless/Bluetooth/cellular devices (here is a good article describing different types of connectors).
- A SATA 3.0 connector that supports one 2.5“ SSD or HDD up to 9.5mm.
- Make sure you have supported devices installed.
- The eMMC storage is enabled in the BIOS (under onboard devices).
- Confirm you have the latest BIOS. If yes, please try a BIOS recovery.
- Confirm OpenELEC is supported on flash memory/eMMC.
I hope this helps.
It's not an mSATA; it's an eMMC. After configuring for Linux, exit Visual BIOS with a save and, during reboot, use F2 to then reenter Visual BIOS. This will cause eMMC to be disabled, I believe. You re-enable its support in the Advanced / Devices and Peripherals scene. Add checkmark for the eMMC Built-in Storage option in the Onboard Devices tab. I believe you are also required to enable UEFI and install the O/S for UEFI (i.e. to GPT-based partitions).
Hope this helps,
thank you for the procedure. Will attempt first thing and reply back within 24 hours with result.
Hello All...apologies for the delayed response to this thread...other projects took priority for an extended period of time.
Abandoned the Openelec/KODI project...decided to install latest Ubuntu desktop image on the unit.
- Confirmed eMMC support enabled in BIOS
- Installed UBUNTU from USB thumb drive
- GPARTED in Ubuntu shows single partition on eMMC, with space used equivalent to standard Ubuntu install. Also confirmed that BOOT flag is set on partition through GPARTED
- Attempting to boot without install thumb drive returns "no bootable device found" error
- eMMC not listed as available device in any boot menu in BIOS interface
UPDATE -- RESOLVED:
Application of latest BIOS release (24) resulted in successful identification of eMMC...Ubuntu booted successfully.
