    Startup & Restart Issues

    Mark Lloyd

      Anyone seeing issues when restarting from o/s??


      o/s appears to shutdown fine and monitor goes to sleep but the NUC then never boots correctly. The power button is lit and a little SSD activity is seen but the BIOS screen never appears.


      Power off is reqd for NUC to boot.


      Also sometime and only on the odd occasion so I also see that the on power on via button that the BIOS fails to appear. Wake On Lan however appears to be flawless.


      Only BIOS change I have attempted is to disable 'fast-start' in case that was causing the issue but its still happening even after that change.


      Appreciate any feedback from the community to see if this has been seen.

          Hello Mark Lloyd,


          Please let us know the model of your NUC for further investigation on this matter.

            I have been testing with Server 2008 and 2012 which is probably not strictly supported on that motherboard but the same still happens on Windows 8 also.


            It doesn't seem to be O/S related IMHO.

              I have also just updated my unit to latest release BIOS (Version 0040) which I was emailed about a few days ago.


              BIOS upgrade went fine and O/S started fine. Then performed a restart as I wanted to go into BIOS to confirm versions etc etc and the restart failed. The unit is just sitting there with solid blue power light and no video.


              As I now have some apps running on the NUC unit I thought I might just test them via remote and they are up and running so the system actually did start fine! Great news.


              This actually appears to be more of a video issue now where the monitor is not sensing any video output or some thing like that.
