Debian install on NUC5i5MYHE


Hi all, I recently bought a used Intel NUC5i5MYHE with the intention of primarily using it as a Roon Server - it had ROCK installed which is optimised for Roon but not accessible enough for my liking with the lack of SSH access etc.. so I would like to install Debian as a headless server and configure Roon Server myself. AFAIK I think the only way to install an OS on one of these is by booting from a live USB drive which I've attempted and failed - on trying to boot the NUC from a USB drive which I thought I'd installed a live bootable system on I saw a grub like menu option stating automatic boot would start in n seconds and it just kept looping - hitting enter did nothing - I don't think I created a bootable image ( never done it before on a USB drive ) has anyone here done this ?

Hello pkfox,


Thank you for posting on the Intel* Community.


Unfortunately, due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help. You may also find the Discontinued Products website ( helpful to address your request.


Please keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel. Thank you for your understanding.


Best regards,

I've used a netinstall while on ethernet. Had trouble with WiFi drivers not being in the free repository.
