I'd like to chime in on my compute stick that has failed. I had a functional STK1AW32SC and was applying SCCHTAX5.86A - watching it update with no peripherals connected and during the main block flash portion the thing shut itself off - instant power down. Now it will not boot and with a keyboard connected to attempt the power button recovery I see the keyboard lights resetting every 10 seconds or so - no video and no other signs of life beyond the keyboard.
Is there a jumper or other more extreme means to recover these
Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
In this case, you can try pressing and hold the power button down for 3 seconds. Release it before the 4-second shutdown override.
The Power Button Menu displays.
Press F4 to complete a BIOS Recovery with the BIO File on a flash driver.
This is basically the option we can try to recover the system if this does not work you can try to get a warranty replacement for the unit, the unit has 1 year warranty and you can request a replacement here:
