Download and save the Recovery BIOS (.BIO) file to a portable USB device. Example:
Plug the USB device into a USB port of the Intel® NUC when it is turned off (not in Hibernate or Sleep mode).
Press and hold down the power button for three seconds, and then release it before the 4-second shutdown override.
The Power Button Menu displays. Options on the menu can vary, depending on the Intel NUC model.
You can do a normal BIOS update by pressing F7 or a BIOS Recovery by pressing F4.
Wait 2–5 minutes for the update to complete.
The computer either turns off when the recovery process is completed, or it prompts you to turn it off.
Remove the USB device.
Restart the computer.
After any BIOS update, Intel recommends the following steps:
- During boot, press F2 to enter BIOS Setup.
- Press F9 to set BIOS default values.
- Customize any BIOS settings, if desired (optional).
- Press F10 to save and exit.
