I have a NUC DC3217IYE that I am trying to put Ubuntu on, or any form of Linux on really. The current versions that I have tried have been Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 and Linux Mint 15. All of them have had the same basic problem. It has a problem with the window focus, so when it's on it will not move between layers of windows. It also will have a problem that when trying to download items, my test item being an Ubuntu ISO it will shut off without provocation. If any other information is needed to help troubleshoot I will be able to get it, I will probably just need to know what to input where. Thanks
I would like to inform you that I just finish the installation of Ubuntu 12.4 on my DC3217IYE. I did not have a problem and it is working fine.
I did not download drivers since I was just trying to duplicate your issue. I installed the OS on AHCI mode on BIOS.
You may want to forward your inquiry to Linux* Ubuntu distribution support community for further assistance since this is an operating system that we do not support.
