I can add I've been fighting this NUC for 2 weeks now,- with helpful advices from skilled people.
I suspect it's a hardware failure, but I fear a long struggle before this is approved.
It can't be Ubuntu,- as I don't even see the startup BIOS screen.
Just a shot in the dark. My Samsung has 4 HDMI ports, only the top 2, numbers 3 & 4 will support a PC.
>> any proven steady Linux for NUC?<<
I have run Xbuntu 12.04 live about 5 times. No problems.
But,- I've tried this.
When the NUC HDMI port works, then every port on the tv or my monitors runs perfectly.
When the NUC HDMI port fails, then no port works. Then I restart the NUC a hundred times,-
suddenly it works for a few hours.
Thanks for the shot ..
Danishnut, I was able to check your service ticket number and in addition to the recommendations given by the technical agent, I could suggest you to use straight connection and the HDMI cable has to be 1.4a.
Since we only support Windows operating system, I would recommend you to try installing W7, W8 or W8.1 and use the drives available for them.
It is very important to verify the current BIOS version on your system, since you mentioned, on the original post, that you were able to updated it to version 0018, however the latest version is 0023. Download Center
Thanks for your input.
I succeeded in upgrading to 0023. I found a way,- cables off, dismantle, RAM block out/back in again. Then I got one perfect start every time. I used one of them to upgrade to 0023.
With 0023 it went crazy :-) First start -I looked at the BIOS,- it froze and closed down. It takes RAM out/in to make it start again. Then after a minute or two, the fan starts screaming and no picture, I have to hold the power button down to shut it (I'm living in a cold area).
Absolutely no chance of installing Windows, it's only running for a couple of minutes when I do get it started.
If I don't take RAM out/in it simply never starts the HDMI and stays with the fan in high revs.
Have tried several high quality HDMI cables.
I have contacted the dealer,- he will take the beast in for a closer look. :-)
So this new driver - doesn't seem to be listed in the D54250WYK section of your download center.
What is the difference between generic drivers like these and those found in the specific section for the NUC?
It should work on your NUC, since the processor comes with HD graphics 5000. I already notified the corresponding department in order to include it on the list.

Thanks for all your help, but today I got a reply from the dealer.
It seems like it had a hardware failure and they return my money, as they are out of stock :-(
Så now I'm without any NUC ...
It did behave rather strangely ....
Right now I'm in panic and searching the web for a replacement ...
Why don't you produce a i7 NUC,- both Intense Pc and Gigabyte seems to have success with it, but
I would prefer a original Intel product???
At this moment there are only NUC with I5 or i3 processor in it. A NUC with I7 may be released in the future.

I got a new NUC.
It's running like a swiss clock with Ubuntu 12.04,- HDMI is a pleasure
My first one was clearly a piece with hardware issues.
Thanks for your help
