    Problem with legacy boot

    RubeRad

      Hello,

       

      I just recently bought a NUC kit (D34010WYK), and I'm having trouble getting it to automatically boot with legacy BIOS.

       

      I have upgraded to BIOS upgrade #24 because the fix report looked like it might help, but it didn't.

       

      I have the UEFI flag unchecked., and on the legacy tab, it sees my drive, and it has a label of "SATA: PORT 3: INTEL SSDMCGAW180A4: PART 0 : Boot Drive"

       

      If I try to just power up normally, it gets to a screen where it spins on "DHCP..." for like 30 sec and then gets an error message like "insert the right boot device". I can write it down if necessary.

      If I double-click on that label for my drive, it asks me whether I want to save and exit, I say "Yes", and then it cycles power, shows the "NUC F2: BIOS, F7/F10" screen again, and then boots just fine!

       

      What is getting saved when I click Yes for save and exit? What is different on that power-up-and-boot than when I just power-up without interrupting with F2 and forcing boot off my SATA drive? How can I make this good-boot condition persist so I can simply boot with the power button?

       

      FYI I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, no other operating system. My partitions look like this (/dev/sda2 is the / drive, 4 and 5 are /home and /data)

       

       

      Model: ATA INTEL SSDMCEAW18 (scsi)

      Disk /dev/sda: 180GB

      Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B

      Partition Table: gpt
