Intel NUC7i7BNB Bios Update ?

So,

I have a problem where a new M2 SSD isn't detected in the bios.

Before going mad I thought I'd check the Bios Rev.

I've managed to find https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27843/NUCs-BIOS-Update-BNKBL357-86A-?product=95065 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27843/NUCs-BIOS-Update-BNKBL357-86A-?product=95065

But the Bios release notes from OPSD and the page itself don't actually mention the specific board (NUC7i7BNB).

The bios string is BNKBL357.86A.0053 (Bios Rev 0053) - Which does match the bios string, but as mentioned neither the release notes or the product page mention the specific board NUC7i7BNB.

https://downloadmirror.intel.com/27843/eng/BN_0064_ReleaseNotes.pdf https://downloadmirror.intel.com/27843/eng/BN_0064_ReleaseNotes.pdf

Can someone from the NUC team or Elan PW (assuming that's where OPSD still develop Bios - I've been away from the IT business for a while and no longer have IBL privileges) please confirm is this bios is compatible with this specific board please.

Warmest Regards - Dave.B

I am not from the NUC team, but, Yes, that is the correct/latest bios (0064)

Look at section 3.1 on page 67 here for the bios string:

Look on page iii under product identification information for the NUC7i7BNB board and board identification information for the bios string.

Gutted. Looks like my AA number doesn't exist. The mysterious board with no name ;-)

Sorry, not exactly sure what you're referring too.

Just an FYI.

This is the Board ID that's in your kit.

This is the AA # :

To answer your original question, yes that BIOS will work on your NUC, did you have any additional questions?

Just referring to the link you sent. Neither the board id or AA appear anywhere on that page. Like the board ID not appearing in the bios release notes. I think the board doesn't exist and is fake news, but it's sitting in front of me, so I guess it is real !

Ah, tracked down it's identity via a PCN for a Bios Update - the board is a bulk sku BLKNUC7I7BNB MM955785.

Back in the day when we'd buy 80k boards a year from DPSD, bulk / 10 packs etc were all listed in bios literature.

Why they've omitted this one and made it so difficult to find is beyond me.

We like to enable amateur sleuths.

But not a bad idea, I can add the board in the title.
