So I bought my first Compute Stick and it worked for a day then died. I started my new 2nd stick , started thought the setup then said "This could take a while" so I came back and had a blank screen I got the prompt but nothing else. I pressed the space bar but nothing happened so what the F*** is going with these Damn things. Someone PLEASE respond!
Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
I'm sorry for the issue you are having with the Intel® Compute Stick.
Please try the following:
Update the Intel® Compute Stick BIOS; please download the latest BIOS version for this unit at:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25506/BIOS-Update-FCBYT10H-86A- Download BIOS Update [FCBYT10H.86A]
In this case I recommend doing a BIOS recovery and you can follow the steps at:

After that is done reset the system to factory defaults:
- Remove any SD card, if installed.
- Press F8 when you see this prompt during boot: F8 to Activate Windows 8.1/10 Recovery Mode.
- Select Troubleshoot.
- Select Reset your PC, then select Next.
- Select just remove my files.
- Select Reset to start the restore process.
After that is done please continue with the set up.
