Hello, I am trying to update the firmware on my Skull Canyon NUC to use a Sonnet Breakaway Box eGPU.
I am running Windows 10 64bit
Latest System BIOS on NUC BIOS Version/Date Intel Corp. KYSKLi70.86A.0055.2018.0516.1629, 5/16/2018
Thunderbolt software 188.8.131.52
Thunderbolt generation Thunderbolt 3 (1575)
NVM Firmware version 18.05
I am trying to update to the latest NVM Firmware -- version 27 fails, as does version 25.
It gives error: "Error: 0x10A 266 Error while getting the PD firmware version"
The Sonnet Breakaway Box eGPU is always attached when running the Thunderbolt 3 Firmware Update.

How did you fix the issue?
How is the eGPU working with the Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK?
Is this the one you have? https://www.sonnettech.com/product/egfx-breakaway-box.html https://www.sonnettech.com/product/egfx-breakaway-box.html
I followed the directions carefully and did not interact with the system tray icon for Thunderbolt which I had clicked on to check for drive and firmware versions.
I first updated the Thunderbolt software and it saw the box but my NVM Firmware version 18.05 did not disconnect. After 5 tries I did a fresh reboot and the updater worked now at NVM Firmware version 27.
I really like to box and the GFX speed upgrade, it is quiet and fast. It now disconnects properly too and I can use the Iris Pro 580 instantly when I move the NUC.
Thanks for the additional details you are providing to us. I hope this information helps other Community peers.
