Intel is phasing out support for legacy Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) boot mode.

  • Intel will not support issues, questions or debug scenarios on legacy platform BIOS configurations, as they are not official plan on record. This includes some 10th generation Intel platforms launching/launched in 2020 and all future platforms.
  • If the Intel NUC Product has legacy BIOS Support listed it will be supported.
  • This same information can be found on the document, Legacy BIOS Boot Support Removal for Intel Platforms.
