D34010WYK Update from Windows

I can find only a OS independant bios file from downloads. The help says that there are possibilities to update the bios initiated from Windows 10 with the BIOS update utility.

Later it says "The update methods below work for all Intel® NUC models. You may not see all these options listed for your NUC model on Download Center."

But for this model i can not find this update utility.

Is this utility available for this model, if the answer is yes where can i find it?

Thanx.

Use the .BIO file. Put it on a USB stick (making sure it is the only file on the stick), boot your NUC, and use the F7 method to update the bios.

I want to bulk do this, preferably via SCCM. That why i asked for a windows 10 method.

I don't want to update the bios for a 1000 NUC's this way. 😥

The previous Windows Express BIOS Update (EBU) modules were removed - for this and all other NUC models - due to a security issue. A fix for this security issue has been developed and incorporated into the EBU module build process. Unfortunately, it would appear that Intel has chosen to not provide any EBU modules for the discontinued NUC models. While I don't give it much hope, I will ask them if anything can be done about this...

Hello MFran42,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel ® communities.

 

I am moving your thread to our Discontinued Products for recommendations from fellow community members since this product has been discontinued. 

 

Keep in mind that Intel will not provide any assistance on the Community since this is a peer-to-peer forum.

 

You may find additional information for your product on the following page: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/76978/intel-nuc-kit-d34010wyk.html

 

 

Regards,

I see i can use the VCUST tool to update the bios. That is VCUSTW64.exe wich can be downloaded, why didn't i see that earlier. 😡

Probably because it wasn't there earlier. It was only just released June 29th.

 

I requested information from the development team regarding your other questions (SCCM, Passwords, etc.) and will respond back once I receive this information...

This tool is very welcome, thanx.

Only poroblem that is have now is that i cannot control the sudden reboot the tool does. So i cannot use it in a Task Sequence properly, because the task sequence quits after this step (upgrade BIOS). But then again, it is a huge step forward.

In order to implement the most secure firmware update process possible, all updates are vetted and installed by the existing firmware. The "sudden" reboot is an integral part of this process, you simply cannot avoid it. You will have to design your update process around this occurrence. I have, in the past, utilized state machines to support a continuance after this process (though this was a lot simpler to implement in the DOS environment).

P.S. Still waiting for response from development team regarding the other questions.

I hav a question outstanding how i can find all UQI numbers to change bios settings via the tool. Displaying or exporting them like the manual says does not work.

Yea, I asked this question, but didn't get a really good answer. They talked about publishing a UQI document with each BIOS release, but this seems fraught with issues and problematic for folks, like you, who are (also) looking for information for discontinued products.
