I can't upgrade NUC5PYH BIOS to 0044 as I get the message "BIOS Ids don't match". I use IFLASH2 on a FreeDos USB drive.
IFLASH2 reads existing BIOS ID O.K. but finds no ID in the BIO file. I have re-downloaded the file and tried version 0043 as well. I also downloaded the zip version and unzipped that
My expectation was that by attaching a FAT format USB drive with just the BIO file on it, the system BIOS would recognise it and do the upgrade. This didn't happen so I went the FreeDOS route which again doesn't work. I do not have an option to burn the BIOS via Windows or across the network.
How can I verify the downloaded files are what was intended to be published by Intel?
What I have is (by MD5SUM)
On the FreeDOS USB drive after booting on the NUC I type
IFLASH2 /P PY0044.BIO
and get the BIOS ID mismatch message. It's not that they are slightly different, the file version number is completely absent
Is there any alternative method of upgrading the BIOS? I can use a Linux LiveUSB system if that assists. Any in particular? I also have a Windows 8 machine.
