NUC8i7HVK running perfectly on Windows 10 , BIOS 59.
Updated to BIOS 60 which was successful.
Everytime I try and start my NUC now it hangs at the BIOS screen.
I need to :
Power down from frozen state at BIOS Screen
Remove my SSDs.
Boot up without SSDs to get a message "No bootable devices"
Shut down NUC and reinstall my SSDs
Turn on power and boot successsfully into Windows 10.
Problem is this happens evertime I reboot or shutdown. It was working perfectly before the BIOS update to version 60.
I have attempted BIOS recovery and reinstalled the BIOS.
Wiped all the settings with F9 to default and re-entered them
Removed the BIOS jumper etc.
No luck, any suggestions would be great as I cant be removing and re-installing my SSDs everytime I want to boot up.
NUC8i7HVK also i have same problem
motherboard Version J68197-503
Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise (64-bit)
ssd Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8
I have a NUC8i7HVK, Windows 10 Pro 1909, with a samsung 970 PRO nvme 512GB and a Intel 1TB NVMe .
I upgraded the bios from 0059 to 0060 this morning and I have restarted multiple times (also updating the AMD driver) and have had no hangs.
Please provide what SSDs you have.
So I took a gamble and did an F4 recovery to version 59. I was hesitatnt as the notes state it cant be rolled back. It WORKED !
I booted into Windows 10, then proceeded to restart to see what happens, well it automatically started a BIOS update on its own to version 60.
Not sure how this can happen as I did not have a USB key inserted, and I certainly didnt select any options. I wonder when I initially ran the update via the MSI package in Windows it has triggered something to continually try and loop into a BIOS update everytime it's restarted ?
Anyhow, I did another F4 recovery to version 59, and this time set the BIOS jumper pins to 2-3 to lock the BIOS.
This has worked, I am now able to boot up as normal into Windows without having to rip out my SSD's after every restart or power on.
One thing I did notice with version 60, the energy star logo was missing, now I am back on version 59 its back again.
Also, it seems with the BIOS locked to pins 2-3 I cannot hit F2 at startup to tweak some settings. Not an issue as I am up at running for now.
When the BIOS jumper is on Pins 2-3, this is lockout mode. You will not be able to use F2, F7, F10, F12 until you move the jumper to pins 1-2.
Curiosity got the better of me and I updated to version 60 again.
Set the BIOS jumper lock pins 2-3. No go, it will not bootup unless I remove my drives and re-install them
Back to version 59, and I it's booting fine again.
So I am staying on version 59 as it works, something definitely not right with version 60 and my NUC.
Have you tried booting to a USB flash drive with 0060 installed? Try a bootable version of Linux and see if that works. Of course remove your SSDs first. Also, do your SSDs have the latest firmware installed? BIOS 0060 does include a bunch of security fixes for SSDs so that may be causing an issue.
i rollback to bios 059 ver and it's working for me
after what i upgrade to ver 060 with Express Method all step done and update success
But BIOS FREEZE i rollback to 059 again and in decide in a future not installed BIOS update
Also i will write about this problem in a most popular resurse
it may be help a lot of customer intel avoid problem and save time and money

I just installed Windows onto a brand new WD Black SN750 SSD with BIOS 0060 installed. Didn't have any issues and was able to enter Visual BIOS and see the drive was detected correctly. Anyone else who has had the POST hang using BIOS 0060, what brand and model of SSD are you using? If you remove the SSD, does the system boot off a USB flash drive? Maybe a Linux distro or a Windows Installation USB?
I have another HVK on the way with 2 x samsung 970 evo plus SSDs. I will test with this new NUC when it arrives as that will be a new clean build.
One thing to check is if you are using the in-box NVMe driver from Microsoft. Have you tried installing the RST software for HV? This will install a newer NVMe support driver that might help with the problem. I have this on my HV and it seems to be working fine.
The message saying you have to install the driver before Windows is installed and that you have to be in RAID is wrong. You just need to install the Setup.exe, not the F6 driver. You also do not need to be in RAID to use this, just AHCI.
That's strange. When I put my Samsung drives back in, that driver disappeared. Maybe it was installed when I installed Windows using the WD Black SN750 SSD. I have installed this before in the past and its worked fine without being in RAID. That may have changed in a later version of software.
