If it is possible to get into the BIOS; I suggest you to update the BIOS to the latest version 0036 using the recovery option. Then, get into the BIOS reset it with F9, save changes with F10.
Try to install the operating system again, but start the NUC on, keep tapping F10 and select UEFI – USB – Linux bootloader.
Recovery Update Instructions
Let me know how it goes.
