Hi DerRudi, I wonder if testing with different cables or monitors will give a different result.
I had no problem booting from a DELL* U2413 connected to DP and a Viewsonic* TV connected via HDMI. I used latest BIOS version 0026 with default settings.
Please note my monitors:
Dell u2412m; 1920x1200px; has vga, dp and dvi inputs; connected via mini dp to dp cable
Samsung 226bw; 1680x1050px; has vga and dvi inputs; connected via mini hdmi to dvi cable
No other monitors nor a hdmi tv to test with at my site.
Edit: I've set the secondory monitor in the bios to 'none' and left the primary to 'displayport'. The system now boots normally, including splash screen w/ f2 etc.
Windows does see the secondary monitor, so i can use two monitors as intended. This seems like a work around, but does not really address the underlying issue: no boot with my original settings.
It could be related to the cables too.
We have reported similar issues with dual monitor configuration; hopefully this will improve in the future.
I, too, had this same issue. The workaround indicated by DerRudi is also how I got past the problem.
I keep seeing suggestions about display cables on these forums, but it seems like the vast majority of issues are rooted somewhere other than a cable issue. Half the cable issue would be gone if full size DP and HDMI connectors were used on the NUC, removing the need for mini adapters.
Tah dah! Same problem. Switched my second screen (a Cintiq) to the HDMI and my primary to VGA to the display port BOOTS FINE! Thanks.
Thank you for your update.
