Just based on the bios date in the picture I'd say the bios needs to be updated. You're running the initial release bios. Here's the latest one:
This download record provides three options for updating the BIOS of the
Intel® NUC Kit DC53427HYE and Intel® NUC Board D53427RKE.
I hope this helps.
Thanks Jason for the quick answer, the screenshot is from internet.
I did update yesterday to version 0030, and I am still with the text mode
Then that IS strange. I'll see if I can find a setting in the bios that controls it.
Are you running in classic mode? I think that might be what you're seeing.
Just find this, maybe this is the answer...
If you are using an HDMI monitor or HDTV that does not support a resolution of 1024x768, you cannot access the Intel® Visual BIOS Setup when pressing the F2 key.
When a non-supported display is detected, the following Intel® NUCs display a text-only BIOS setup mode as a workaround:
- Intel® NUC Kit DC53427HYE
- Intel® NUC Kit DC3217IYE
- Intel® NUC Kit DC3217BY
- Intel® NUC Kit DCCP847DYE
- Intel® NUC Board D53427RKE
- Intel® NUC Board D33217GKE
- Intel® NUC Board D33217CK
- Intel® NUC Board DCP847SKE
The following Intel NUCs do not include this workaround. You must use an HDMI monitor or HDTV that supports the 1024x768 resolution.
- Intel® NUC Kit D54250WYK
- Intel® NUC Kit D34010WYK
- Intel® NUC Board D54250WYB
- Intel® NUC Board D34010WYB
How do you switch from classic mode to graphical? I couldn't find the option.
Unfortunately I don't have my NUC with me to check, but I seem to recall there's an option in configuration to switch to advanced mode. It's been a while (didn't have a need to use classic bios). I'll see if I can find a screen shot.
It could also be on the Boot menu. I can check on mine tonight when I get home.
Thanks Jason, will try to look further too tonight

If your BIOS is defaulting to the text-based mode, it is almost certainly due to the display you have connected. As you found in that support document, your NUC has detected that the display will not support Visual BIOS. There is not an option to try forcing it into Visual BIOS.
What is the make/model of your display? Do you have an option to try plugging the NUC into a different display?
Thanks, my display is a Panasonic Viera TH-42PX80.
Unfortunately this is the only display I got with HDMI connectivity.
Panasonic's website shows that model as 720p natively, also:
Display Capability 1080p/1080i/720p/480p
I would think Visual BIOS would work on it.
I agree Jason, and I'am able to go higher than 720p within Windows...
In the BIOS if you go to the Exit screen do you see an option for "Save Settings and Return to Visual BIOS"? (see screen shot). I had to update my BIOS first to get to classic mode, but that's how it lets me out of it.
