if you want i working solution: return the NUC to the dealer! Intel NUCs have hardware tolerances which are very hard to solve by the BIOS. I am not an engineer, but i have over 20 years of PC experience and a sharpened eye for the reality! And Intel owns just way too much money, then taking their costumers serious. Of course, Intel knows how to produce great CPU and Chipsets. But obviously they do not know how to build a computer and a BIOS. I own a Shuttle DS437 too, and EVERYTHING is woking great out of the box with various OS. Surprise, surprise...
You may have a look for the upcoming Zotac nano C-Series.They pretend to be great...
Hi micoba, I am sorry that you have multiple issues. It might be valuable to provide more information about your issues so others can help you.
I have some questions:
Does the USB 3.0 issue happens with different USB drive models?
May I know the model of the Intel® NUC and the main hard drive you are using with Windows* 8?
So, the network speed issue is with wired Ethernet?
Thank you for your reply!
I already wrote several emails in which I described my problems. Also I'm not the first one with this or similar issues (just take a look at some other threads on this board!).
I tried 4 different USB Sticks from different manufacturers - none of them worked properly!!!
I own the D54250WYK, but I had the same issues with a D34010WYK. I use a SSD, which works without any problems.
Yes, I don't use wlan. The speeds are normal when using OpenElec that is Linux.
Please acknowledge the issues with the NUC regarding USB 3.0 and finally fix it!!! Really, this is absolutely emberassing for such a huge company!!! Don't let us - your COSTUMERS - wait anymore!!!
Same problem here. I also own an Intel NUC D54250WYKH (the higher version). I have an external 2,5in drive, WD My Passport Ultra 1TB for my data. Sometimes it is found, but often it is not there (tried also on Linux Xubuntu and Debian live CD - same scenario. After some time i found a pattern - when I do "shutdown" and then power NUC on, it isn't present, but when i do "reboot" and login to OS it is present. It is present and visible in the BIOS. I have latest 26 revision.
Intel, this is highly annoying, please fix this one!
Could you elaborate on how many USB devices and hubs, if any, you have connected to the NUC, and on what ports they are connected? Also, what are the make/model/part# of USB sticks have you tried?
I had some problems hanging at POST until I grouped USB devices not needed for BIOS/boot on to a single port and set that port to "No Detect" in the BIOS. Boots like a champ now.
We are aware about this issue; however, as yonkers12 pointed out, it is advised to provide more information about the devices you are using, so our engineering team can use this data to work on the issue. You can try generating a dump file with http://rweverything.com/, which is a free tool, and send it to us via PM or attach it here.
