I am having intermittent failure of Intel NUCs DC53427HYE during BIOS update using the F7 key when booting and a USB drive containing the BIOS update. The BIOS update filename is RK0034.BIO
I am cloning a Master Intel NUC to an external SSD, then installing the cloned SSD in a new NUC. We found it necessary to update BIOS to the same as the Master NUC before it will boot. Usually this works ( I have done it on ten NUCs but I also had this same issue once before). The computer goes into an endless loop upon startup, but first it says:
>Flashing image for Graphic Firmware
>Flash update has completed successfully
>Changes to BIOS require a full system reset.
>Power off the system and unplug the AC power cord.
>Restore the BIOS COnfiguration Jumper.
>Then restore AC power and power on the system.
I had not touched the jumper. Upon next restart, the computer displays the Intel startup screen, then a black screen, then loops back to the Intel screen endlessly. The Function keys, like F10 don’t work.
I have tried moving the jumper to recovery mode, tried removing the jumper and memory, unplugging for one hour, nothing is working.
The other time I had this issue-I returned the computer to the vendor. Now it has happened again and I am wondering if it is recoverable.
Any help appreciated.
