Thanks for your input Mr Pearson.
Everything is still showing all up to date in my Intel Driver & Support Assistant.
The latest BIOS version for my Hades Canyon NUC is HN0040.bio and haven't managed to get it to download using Windows 10 as easily as the HN0037.bio update, like its not supported yet or something. It seems it won't update from the HN0037.bio update which I have installed and have upto date as shown here from the Intel Download BIOS Update page:
BIOS Release notes:
Still no further forward at the moment unfortunately, is there going to be a Windows 10 available download for the most recent HN0040.bio Update for the Hades Canyon?
You tried installing BIOS 40 via the F7 method and it did not work? Did you leave Secure Boot enabled?
You mean an Express BIOS Update (EBU) executable to run from Windows? I do not recommend using them. Besides, if you can't install the BIOS via the F7 method, the EBU method isn't going to work either. I suggest that you install this latest BIO file using the Recovery Method. This is documented here:
Hope this helps,
Thanks once again Mr Pearson for your input. Really appreciate all the help.
I haven't tried the BIOS 40 via the F7 and USB method yet as the BIOS 40 file I get seems to just be a word file when downloaded and opened within Windows.
Yes. I don't fancy using the Express BIOS 40 update myself as it doesn't seem suited to my Windows 10 environment.
The BIOS 37 method seemed so much easier and clearly made for Windows 10 as it shows in the available downloads page here: Download BIOS Update [HNKBLi70.86A] That's the method I used and was so easy and clearly made for Windows users like myself and environment.
I will try the BIOS 40 method you mentioned with the USB but don't feel confident enough that it will work due to the file that seems to get downloaded and states OS Independent. I feel like there should be another update for Windows 10 instead of just the OS Independent downloads for the BIOS 40 update as they did for the BIOS 37 update.
Hi Wanner, thanks for your kind message and concern for my ongoing issue.
I have tried Mr Pearson's fix using BIO 40 and it still doesn't work, The F7 method is just confusing for myself. The file just isn't the same as the BIO 37 method which was far easier in my opinion even as a fairly competent windows user. I am still using BIO 37 at the moment with the same issue with the LED and Skull lights remaining on after shutdown, I have just gotten used to it for now but would like a fix to turn it off as it should after shutdown.
Any more help would be very much appreciated, thanks.
My recommendation is that you can install the latest BIOS update available as new fixes/features were added. You can check the BIOS update releases notes below.
Now, the Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i7HVK has customizable LED lights for the skull logo. I replicated the issue and the LED indicators/skull logo turned off successfully.
You can change the settings in BIOS setup Menu > Devices > LED control tab. You can check if the Software LED control is enabled in BIOS.
Also, you can review the following guide and even install the latest version of the LED Manager for Intel® NUC available at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/ for Windows.
LED Manager for Intel® NUC
I hope you find this information helpful.
Thanks again Wanner.
I seem to have difficulty with the BIO 40 file as it is doing nothing when I try F7 on startup, no sign of the USB with the BIO 40 file to be seen. just info about my Samsung SSD, I have reviewed all the current updates and tests and they are all coming back as up to date as well.
LED manager is up to date and most current version as well.
The BIO 40 file is just not there or installing like the BIO 37 file.
In this case, make sure that the .bio file is the only file in your flash drive and FAT32 format.
Please try these steps one more time.
1.Download the Recovery BIOS (.BIO) file and copy it to a USB device:
2.Plug the USB device into a USB port of the target computer.
3.Shut down the target computer.
4.During boot, when the F7 prompt is displayed, press F7 to enter the BIOS Flash Update tool.
5.Select the USB device and press Enter.
6.Select the .BIO file and press Enter.
7.Confirm you want to update the BIOS by pressing Enter.
8.Wait 2–5 minutes for the update to complete.
9.Remove the USB device.
10.Restart the Intel® NUC.
Thanks once again Wanner,
Got the BIO 40 file to install successfully thanks to your detailed response, very much appreciated btw but the lights still wouldn't go out on their own, they only went out after I unplugged the nuc. Lights all seem to go out and work as it should for a few times after shutdown since I took the plug out after the BIO 40 install but then the lights go back to staying on randomly, weird how it continues to do this.
Thanks for all your help once again.
