    Boot wait time NUC6i5SYH

    Tranzy

      Hello,

       

      My Config first:

       

      NUC6i5SYH

      2 * 8GB Kingston HyperX (KHX2133C13S4/8G)

      M2.Sata Samsung SSD 950 512GB

      Seagate 1TB Hybrid ST1000LM014

      Windows 10 Pro build 1511

       

      My questions:

       

      • M2.Sata drive not recognized in BIOS (Works well though)
      • Long wait time at boot app. 10-15 seconds wait on NUC logo and boot options screen. I like to speed this up. How to do this.
      • What is the function of changing the minimum IGD memory size and maximux Aperture size. Tested it with 3Dmark but did not notice a difference.
      • What is the best (SAFE) way to improve gaming performance (is this done in the bios)

       

      Question two is the most annoying factor.

          Hello, Tranzy:

           

          I would like you to check some settings that could be affecting the performance of your device.

           

          1. At BIOS>Advanced>Power, check the performance mode to be in "high performance".

          2. Also, you can download and run the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool to check the status of your CPU.

           

          Download Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool (64-bit)

           

          Regarding the graphics IGD, for the Intel® Core™ i5-6260U Processor that is inside the Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH you will have 1.7 GB available and it will be used depending on the graphics needs at the moment it is required.

           

          Here you can find the specs for this CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-6260U Processor (4M Cache, up to 2.90 GHz) Specifications

           

          I look forward to your outcome with the tests advised.

           

          Regards,

          Esteban C

            Hello Esteban,

             

            Your version did not work. I had to download a different version. Your version gave an error on CPU frequency.

              Hello, Tranzy:

               

              Thank you for providing me with these results.

               

              It looks good, your CPU, did you test the power setting at BIOS?

               

              I look forward to your reply.

                Yes i did.

                 

                I'm just bothered by the fact that i have to wait 10-15 seconds before it starts loading Windows 10

                 

                My NUC5i7RYH does this within 5 seconds. Almost don't have time to press F2/F7/F10.

                And i would like to see that the Bios recognizes my 950 Pro eventually. Noww it says M2.Sate Not installed.

                  Hello, Tranzy:

                   

                  I would like you to check the comparison between the CPUs inside those two NUCs.

                   

                  ARK | Compare Intel® Products

                  There you can verify the different specs and speeds of each of the processors which could provide you with a better overview regarding boot speeds.

                   

                  Regarding the m.2, have you checked if it is enabled at BIOS level? if yes, are you able to see it in the BIOS?

                   

                  I look forward to your reply.

                    You do know your Intel nuc's? of so, you should know that i'm using the latest and fastest Nuc version. And like i pointed out that it is slower then the earlier version (also the fastest of it's generation).

                     

                    So please tell me what the point is in comparing these.

                     

                    And yes. Ofcourse i enabled it. Otherwise i could not boot from it.

                     

                    No offense. I appriciate the help. But this last post is a bit strange.

                      Hello, Tranzy:

                       

                      I apologize for the confusion, the comparison is for you to have a better overview of the CPU you have in the Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i5SYH (Intel® Core™ i5-6260U), it runs a little slower than the Intel® Core™ i7-5557U (NUC5i7RYH) which could affect the boot speed.

                       

                      You could also test your system with a different drive to troubleshoot boot speed.

                       

                      Regarding the BIOS issues, this is a known situation and Intel® is working on a fix for it, please monitor for future BIOS updates that could contain this specific fix.

After the first shock you’ll probably realize it’s not gone really, but Intel just added an option in the BIOS to switch on or off the M.2 slot. And by default the M.2 slot is disabled (go figure)!"

                            I figured it out myself!

                             

                            Disabling Legacy boot reduces boot time by 10 seconds!

                              Hi,

                               

                              I had exactly the same issue. Booting to win 10 took around 45seconds due to the BIOS wait.

                               

                              I was then told to disable legacy boot and then disable network boot.

                               

                              After disabling network boot my NUC now powers up and ready to use in windows in less than 15seconds.

                               

                              Hopefully this helps.

                                    Hi EstebanC_Intel,

                                     

                                    Not to hijack this thread but I saw the suggestion to set the  nuc6i5syk to use Maximum Performance. I have this unit with a Samsung 950 M.2 and 16g ddr4.

                                    After some general programming tasks (web stuff) this machine was running between 85 and 95c with the fan at 3500rpm never higher than that.

                                     

                                    I don't believe these systems atleast the skylake ones can handle that bios settings.
