I have an Intel NUC NUC7CJYH with an Intel Celeron J4005 processor and 8 GB ram.
The machine is currently running Windows 10, and it works just fine.
I want to load Linux or ClodReady OS on it, but when selecting boot (F10) the computer can not find the USB stick.
I have updated the bios to the latest version 0059 and it is running in default mode. I have also tried many changes in the BIOS (disabled secure boot), but to no avail.
What could be wrong? Is there a fault in the computer or bios? Legacy Bios is not available.
They flubbed the fix in BIOS 59. BIOS 60, which supposedly has a fix for this issue, is being released today. Look for it appearing sometime in the next 8-10 hours (depends on propagation rates for the various servers).
That said, in this day and age, when practically every Linux distribution has support for UEFI Boot, you shouldn't be using legacy Boot. (Off my soapbox now)
Now I have upgraded to bios version 0060 without it helping.
I have disabled network boot
I have enabled boot USB devices first
I have disabled secure boot
I have enabled allow UEFI 3rd party driver loaded
Is there anything else I can try, or is it something wrong with the computer?
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.
I would like to inform you that we have been receiving reports that the BIOS version 0060 solved the problems with Linux. In order to help you further, please try the following:
1. Perform a BISO recovery.

2. Preform a fresh installation of Linux, also bear in mind that these are the supported operating systems by the NUC: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Windows® 10 Home, 64-bit - or - Windows 10 Home in S Mode.
3. Check with your Linux provider to get more details about the version supported and installation.

I've got the same problem. Would like to use a linux distribution without UEFI support. I upgraded my Celeron NUC to the latest bios JY0062 but there is no option for legacy boot and the checked UEFI boot is greyed out so that I'm not able to remove the flag.
Any more options to get legacy boot working accept switching to another hardware?
