i send you my Mailadress for the testbios, thx for that.
Did you already test it?
I have the same Issue, I´m using the Nuc for Openelec XBMC (Linux OS) and installed the OS on a USB 3.0 Stick.
After starting the NUC, i have freezing too and sometimes an Errormassage. After Reboot, Openelec boots from the stick and it works.
thank you for sending the test Bios. I tested it yesterday, unfortunately with bad results.
After installing the Bios, i was not able to boot from USB Stick, freezing at Nuc Logo. Getting to Bios Settings, while the Stick is inside was not possible as well, but when i removed the stick Bios Settings works again. So i turned back to Biosversion 023 and it works as before of course with the same old bug.
I hope we get a Solution soon
Thanks for the test Bios.
I been running with the bios in 2 days now, but I still have problems.
When I start my NUC with my USB HDD plugged, the NUC freeze like before.
Its freeze at the NUC logo. If I unplug the USB its start immediately.
Like with the old Bios this doesn't happen every time, it's happens random.
I've raised the same issue here
The lack of progress on a fix for something so fundamental is slightly annoying and preventing production use
I received my NUC yesterday and I'm experiencing this problem too.
BIOS: WY0024.BIO (from 11 Feb 2014)
mSATA: 60GB Kingston
USB3.0: 4 x 2TB WD elements 2.5"
I have successfully installed several OS's (3 x Linux & 2 x FreeBSD) on the mSATA disk via a USB2.0 stick - but the result is always as described above: reboot with one or more USB3.0 drives connected and the BIOS crashes (doesn't display the "F2 Setup" menu and doesn't load the boot block).
As noted by others, if the drives are connected after the OS has started booting, they all work without any errors* (see below).
It is possible to boot with one drive connected directly after the power cable has been disconnected - but a "warm" reboot always fails if any USB3.0 drives are connected.
I've tried turning the various USB / boot related flags on and off in the BIOS, but to no effect.
Some other things that I've noticed:
- if I plug in the drives after booting, they appear as USB 2.0 (with 480MB/s 500mA, instead of 5GB/s)
- (*) disconnect the NUC from power, attach USB3.0 drives, connect power (but DO NOT TURN ON) - the USB drives all spin up and continue spinning - power consumption appears to be at ~10W (via a cheap meter +/-3W)
(I was hoping to have the entire system running (idle) at about 10W: NUC @ ~6W + 4 x USB3.0 disks @ ~0.5W)
