Thanks for the information provided. We already escalated this situation to the engineering department.
Once you updated the BIOS to the latest version, there is not possible to go back to version 0044.
I would recommend you to RMA the board is you are able to do it. In the mean time we are trying to find a solution.
This happenned to me before as I noted it in ( http://communities.intel.com/message/193837 ). Any news from the engineers? In my case the warranty is still valid. How do I proceed for RMA ? Thanks in advance for all your help,
No yet Craig.
However, please let me know something. When you updated the BIOS, did you jump from version 0044 to 0106?
Before updating the BIOS we recommend to check which BIOS version is installed. Then, check how many versions are between the current BIOS and the latest one. Then, depending on that, try to install 1 or 2 versions before going to the latest.
This specific model has 14 different BIOS versions, which means there are many fixes between one and another.
Also, let me know which operating system are you using?
Is there any progress on this yet? I have rma'd the board twice and still the full length mini pcie slot will not detect my tv tuner cards. The second board just came. It had bios 106 on it, still no detection. I updated to bios 108 still no detection. I know that both tuner cards work, because they both function in a lowly core 2 duo laptop. I thought technology was supposed to get better. Is there a secret bios tweak or setting or jumper that I am missing? Is there any hope of having the mini pcie slot working properly? I have tried both windows 7 64 and windows 8 64. The card is not shown as detected in the bios. It also does not show up in the device manager as unknown device or anything else. I have installed the drivers but the card just doesn't get picked up. Please help.
I am watching this topic for over a year now and apparently nothing happened.
A lot of people have problems with this issue and Intel is still asking for hardware version numbers and operating systems. Where is the bug fix?
By the way, there is another thread with the same topic and both are dead.
We have hundreds of customers which have trouble with their systems right now and our success on the market is going down. We can do nothing on this problem, Intel has to deliver a Bios update.
If there are still any questions, we will help. Even the manufacturer of our TV-cards will give you a sample card to find the problem.
Our "next generation set top box" is based on the Intel NUC, but if the support will be the same, there is no reason to stay any longer on intel hardware.
Other companies are able to fix those problems easily and the hardware is even cheaper.
It is time to act!
