Thanks for joining the NUC community.
While Intel has not tested and validated Intel® NUC on your Linux version, we know that other customers have successfully installed it.
Intel suggests you check your Linux distro's website Open Source and Linux Forums and blogs at Using the Watchdog Timer in Linux — Christian's Blog for peer assistance with this setup issue.
Thank you for the response.
The Using the Watchdog Timer in Linux — Christian's Blog discuss SW watch dog timer and not hardware watchdog Timer.
I would like know which Watch Dog Timer module (driver) should be required for ATOM "Bay Trail" NUC 3815 and the kernel version used is 3.13.0-30-generic. I was able to enable Software Watch Dog Timer but need HW Watch Dog Timer.
