Bluetooth in the BIOS

Hello, I own a nuc8i7hvk and use it with a bluetooth keyboard.

 

I'd like to be able to use it in the bios and at startup for the boot options for example.

Is there a solution to this? I didn't find anything in the bios, bluetooth is already checked.

Thanks for your answer.

I can get the Bluetooth keyboard to work with my Intel Compute Stick that provides a very nice pairing process, but I have not been successful with the 8i7H*K during POST, because it doesn't provide a pairing interface in BIOS (or not that I can find).

The bios setting check box for Bluetooth is to enable the hardware for the OS.

I also wondered, SD cards arent bootable on this nuc?

That is correct; SD boot is not supported. Apparently, there is no BIOS driver to support booting from this device.

But, I agree that support for Bluetooth pairing needs to be added to the BIOS.

Just a note, Logitech's proprietary "Unifying" receiver dongles will work with the BIOS, and they make a few keyboards that support both Unifying and Bluetooth, such as the https://www.logitech.com/en-ca/product/k780-multi-device-wireless-keyboard K780 and https://www.logitech.com/en-ca/product/living-room-keyboard-k830 K830.
