Unless things have changed in the last few months, the short answer is no. However, you can try something like this: Amazon.com: CompuLab Display Emulator (fit-Headless): Computers & Accessories
I actually did a write-up on using WiDi as your only display, and one of the hurdles to get around for that is getting the NUC to boot without a monitor/tv attached: The Intel NUC: Widi as your only display.
I hope this helps.
Appreciate your reply.
The information you provided on the work around is extremely useful for anyone considering running it headless.
