Hello LTN, I’m sorry for the inconvenience that you have faced with your system.
I would recommend you checking this thread from a user who was having the same issue. https://communities.intel.com/thread/54282
I tested the following devices on my NUC and these are the results:
- Crucial SSD 2.5 was recognized.
- Fujitsu HD 2.5 was recognized.
These 2 products use 5v.
The only device that did not work was a regular mechanical 3.5 hard drive, but once I connected the HD to a power supply, it worked without problems. These HDs required 12v.
I’m using BIOS version 0027. This could be a compatibility problem with the HD you are using.
thank you for replying
my post is aimed to understand if there are known motherboard or sata controller issues with this NUC model.
the HDD's I've mentioned are internals so they obviously working at 5V. external HDD are not relevant for my post.
as I mentioned before I have encounterd this issue with 2 NUC's carrying the Western Digital HDD, while other NUC's were working fine with the same HDD model.
this NUC's factory installed bios version is 0021, I have upgraded one of them to the latest version 0033 which did not affect the issue.
