There are two possibilities here. First, it may be that the keyboard is not being recognized. There are known issues with some Logitech wireless keyboards, for example. Second, there way be issues with the monitor in use (cannot handle 1024x768 display).
F10 is what to hit for boot device list. If this is not appearing, it seems more likely to be a keyboard issue...
Hope this helps,
It is not the keyboard, it is the monitor. Or rather, the NUC-monitor connection. The NUC's output is HDMI and the monitor's input is either DVI or VGA. Now, DVI is in use by means of an adapter (I have not tried a HDMI-to-VGA adapter.)
The problem appears to be, simply, that whatever video the BIOS outputs is not displayed; it is, somehow, lost between HDMI and DVI. But when Linux gets up and running, the video is OK.
I checked this by connecting the NUC to a TV with HDMI (no adapter needed). Immediately, the boot menu appeared.
I had forgotten that the NUC also has a DisplayPort and that I have a DP-to-VGA adapter. Using those and the aforementioned monitor's aforementioned VGA input, it could be established that the boot menu gets displayed in this case. The video quality, of course, is pathetic, not something one would normally like to see.
Hhmmm, I have used a number of HDMI-to-DVI and mHDMI-to-DVI adapters to connect 1080p monitors to WY NUCs and I have never had any issues with any of them, Similarly, I have used a whole bunch of mDP-to-DVI adapters without issue. I have seen a on/off flashing issue with one HDMI-to-VGA adapter, but chalked this up to it being a bad adapter (I have other HDMI-to-VGA adapters that don't display this issue).
