Dear all, I am grateful for your help in advance.
I thought buying a NUC just 4 months ago, Win10, keeping the SSD in-brand with a 128gb SSD would be fool-proof for my ageing father system.
The system was working flawlessly, until he reports to me the error: PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable.
He said it fixed itself once, and then since then continuing failure now.
I go into the bios and with UEFI Boot, there is no 'boot drive'.
But when I look in the chipset SATA controller: I can see M.2 NVME SSD: "Intel SSDPEK...." drive listed.
I pulled out the ram and m2 card and re-fitted it. still same error.
I presume this is either the M2.SSD or the NUC?
Im guessing it could be a problem with the NUC, as the M2 is recognised in SATA controller, but not able to locate a boot drive.
Im trying to work out what to return / RMA.
Many thanks for your help
I would let Intel sort that out. I would RMA both the NUC unit and the M.2 SSD. Contact Intel Customer Support directly to make arrangements for this.
