Also another thing:
When i power it, it starts without blinking, in some cases it turns off and then on, and goes like that, i've removed the BIOS Yellow Pin, and inserted a USB formated with FAT, with *.bio file in it, but nothing, no blinking, nothing.
Just wanted to verify that you've done these steps correctly:
0. USE THIS BIOS - BIOS Update [RYBDWi35.86A]
1. Copy the recovery file (*.bio) to a bootable USB device.
2. Plug the USB device into a USB port of the target Intel NUC.
3. Shut down the computer and unplug AC power.
4. Open the chassis and remove the yellow BIOS Configuration Jumper. See the Technical Product Specification for the location of this jumper.
5. Power the system on.
6. Wait 2-5 minutes for the update to complete.
7. The computer will either turn off when the recovery process is completed or it will prompt you to turn off the computer.
8. Remove the USB device from the USB port.
9. Replace the BIOS Configuration Jumper.
10. Restart the computer.
Let me know if det_bradlee’s troubleshooting solves the issue.
Make sure, USB is formatted as FAT16 and the .BIO file is saved in the root of the USB drive, try with USB 2.0 drive. Use only 1 monitor and 1 memory stick.
is necessary to use an USB formatted as FAT16 for BIOS recovery or we can use at least FAT32? FAT16 is limited to 2GB pendrive (not so common nowadays)
I have what seems to be the exact same problem with my NUC6i3SYK.
I've tried the bios recovery, changing the jumper pins to boot straight to the bios, and long pressing the power button. Nothing works.
The PC powers on with the blue light and then nothing.
Others have suggested removing any system drives while updating from USB if you have any issues. On the 6 series in particular, there is a problem updating while an m.2 drive is connected. I can confirm this.
My USB its a 32GB 3.0, previously i used this one to install the OS, but after that nothing worked. Might this be the case? Also i am formating it from a Mac OX with diskutil, and there are only a few options, either the default mac FS, or FAT, or ExFAT?
Should i remove the SSD ?
I can't confirm that there wouldn't be issues with your Mac formatted flashdrive. If you have access to a Windows machine (and perhaps a smaller flash drive), I would try using it to format to FAT or FAT32.
It's worth a shot removing the SSD during recovery update. Perhaps that will solve. Let us know!
It is possible to use fat 32 in your USB.
Thanks Mike C
Let me know how it goes.
So, finally i had some time to take care of the NUC.
The issue was that the Format type for my USB was FAT and not FAT32, since i was formatting it through diskutil. I simply picked "Master Boot Record" and used FAT, and it actually worked, the BIOS got updated.
Everything is fine, though a lot of headache.
Thank you for your help.
