It is possible to enable Fast Boot with the steps below.
Get into the BIOS pressing F2 while starting the NUC up. Select Advanced tab>Boot>Boot Configuration and enable Fast Boot.
If you want to disable Fast Boot without entering BIOS setup: Power down the system, then hold down the power button until the system beeps
Hi Miguel and thanks for the reply. I could not find a tab called "Advanced". Here is what I did find :
"Boot Configuration Tab"
Fast Boot Category
General Optimization (no check) ?
USB Optimization (no check) ?
Video Optimization (no check) ?
UEFI Boot (checked) ?
Legacy Boot (checked) ?
Boot USB Devices First (no check) ?
BIOS Setup Auto-Entry (no check) ?
USB Boot (checked) ?
Boot to Optical Devices (checked) ?
Boot to Network (checked) ?
I put a check mark in "General Optimization" under Fast Boot which removed the first two checked items under "Boot Devices".
I removed network boot under "Boot Devices"
I left all others as they were.
The NUC seems to boot faster now (by about 3-5 seconds)
Are my settings OK ?
Thanks in advance
Your settings are correct. I am glad your system is booting faster now.
