Cannot obtain current BIOS for NUC6i7KYK using Driver & Support Assistant (Intel DSA) - WHY is this?


The last BIOS update I obtained for my NUC6i7KYK (Skull Canyon) via the Intel Driver & Support Assistant (Intel DSA) was version 0059.


Since that time, Intel has released two further BIOS updates (0062, 0063) which are NOT obtainable/installable via Intel DSA.


I have reviewed the BIOS Update page for the Intel NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK (link shown below). I find that they are currently only publishing these versions of the BIOS:

  • Recovery BIOS update
  • iFlash BIOS update
  • UEFI BIOS update


There is NO Express BIOS update.


In contrast, if you look at the corresponding page for a more recent Intel NUC - e.g. the NUC8i5BEH - they continue to release all 4 versions of the BIOS update (including the Express BIOS update version). The most recent BIOS for that machine IS available to be installed via Intel DSA.


I would like to understand the reason why the Express BIOS update option is no longer available / not currently available for the Skull Canyon.
