STCK1A8LFC in boot loop after software update installed. What can I do to fix this?


I can get into BIOS via F2 key during boot and then can select only recovery boot.

The boot start the boot after choosing this option.

The text Intel Stick pops up shortly in the middle of the screen and then a 2 messages

show up quickly (needed to take several pictures with my camera to capture them)

[ 0.332827] pnp 00:02:can't evaluate _CRS: 1

[ 12.558866] i8812: No controller found


It then goes on with Ubuntu booting and doing lots of stuff I can see.

It goes through this in a permanent loop showing the 2 line message over and over again.

I think the 2 messages are my problem (note the numbers in them are not always the same).

Is it possible to corrupt the stick by not leaving enough space on it for temp files?

(got a warning that only 2% space was left before reboot after the installation finished)

Do you think an update of the BIOS will help using the F7mode?

I have downloaded the new BIOS on a FAT32 formatted USB stick.

I installed the newest BIOS .. same problem.

Is there any way I can get a new image file for the stick to reload?

Hello electromaus,

Thank you for joining the Intel® Compute Stick community.

I am afraid that if the BIOS update did not fix this your Intel® Compute Stick may be defective. You can try re-installing the operating system from scratch, but this will void the warranty on the unit, so my recommendation at this stage is to get in contact with our warranty in order to check the replacement options.

My apologies for the inconvenience.
