Thank you for letting us know about this.
We have received reports and we are currently working on this. We have reproduced the problem from our side and we are investigating this problem.
Since this is a very brand new product, I recommend you checking the website for a future BIOS update that may contain a fix for it.
same problem right now .. I have a nuc5i5ryk no success to install ubuntu 14.04 14.10
it loads grub then loads the installer but the graphics are broken .. windows only have bars, no text, no menus, no buttons at all ... when I pass the mouse inside windows suddenly buttons appear etc
... but it seams that the beta ubuntu 15.04 works fine
Kevin: Thank you for the update. Good to know you guys have reproduced the problem and are working on it.
kominato: Wheeeee. I did get Mint 17.1 installed and working in software rendering mode but that kinda sucks. I grabbed lubuntu 15.04 and the LiveCD booted up with clean graphics. So I installed it and that seems to be running okay too. Now I can move forwards with my little HTPC project. You made my day so thank you very much indeed.

After some testing an issue with the Linux Kernel version was found. I tried different Linux* versions with Kernel 3.13 and in all configurations de the same behavior was exhibited.
Tests made with Ubuntu and ArchLinux based in Kernel 3.18 worked ok.
For now, I would recommend to update Kernel to 3.18 in a different integration and build a new installation distribution.
Also Linux Mint 17.02 installs and runs just fine.
