I have an intel NUC NUC7I5BNK, and have been trying to instal linux on an m.2 drive using a usb install. I managed to boot the nuc to the usb install once, but after realising that the nuc failed to install linux to the m.2 I had to reformat the hard drive using a computer. I've gone to do the same again, and the usb keyboard isn't responding - meaning I can't boot into the nuc's system to boot from usb . I've used the keyboard with other computers and its working fine. Does anyone have any suggestions?
This isn't a hardware issue; it is a software issue (likely in your distribution). You need to talk to the Linux distribution folks about this issue.
