Issue with updating visual bios.

I am trying to intall windows, but have an issue with intel bios. See attachement 1 or 4.
I am getting the following error in blue.
I am restarting the computer, entering visual bios with F2. See in attachement 2 the version.
Then, pressing F7, trying to update the visual bios I am receiving "downloading bios update" as in attachement 3.
But it is always on zero procents.
I guess because I need to connect to internet. How I can connect to my phone's wifi internet from inside the bios?

Hi @JosefK ,

I'm assuming that you want updated BIOS for NUC2820FYKH. Since you are going to do huge step while updating from version 0045 directly to the latest version 0072, such update can fail and can brick your computer. The version of BIOS you have installed (0045), was released in December 2014 and after nineteen other updates, in Juny 2020, version 0072 was released. During this time many fixes were applied to the BIOS firmware and many features added. So, if you decide to go for this update (you are doing this on your own risk), you should perform this update in two steps - first BIOS Recovery by Security Jumper Removed and then BIOS Update by F7.

 

Step I:

1. Prepare USB stick fully formatted to FAT32 . Format your USB with Quick Format option unchecked. Do not format your USB in MAC (OS) or Linux machine. Use Windows. Download the FY0072.bio file. Copy the FY0072.bio file to the root of this USB.
2. Disconnect the power adapter and remove the bottom panel from your NUC.
3. Remove the Yellow Bios Security Jumper. (page 41 in Technical Product Specification)
5. Insert the USB with the FY0072.bio file into rear USB slot.
6. Reconnect the power adapter and power ON the NUC. Wait 30 sec - 2min. The Recovery process will start automatically and will end after 2 -5 minutes.
7. When bios recovery is completed, press and hold the Power Button to switch the power OFF, remove the power adapter and replace the Security Jumper (pins 1-2) . Remove the USB and reinstall the bottom panel.
8. Power your NUC ON.
9. Enter Bios setting by pressing F2 during boot process.
10. Press F9(followed by Enter), to set Bios to default settings. Press F10 (followed by Enter), to save the settings and exit to O.S. Let the NUC fully reboot.


Step II
1. Insert the USB with the FY0072.bio file into rear USB slot (your NUC should be OFF)
2. Power ON you NUC and when you see the Intel NUC logo, repeatedly click on F7. NUC will boot into storage menu. You should select your USB stick (mass storage device) and then the FY0072.bio file. Click enter the update will start and end during 2-3 minutes.
3. When update ends, the NUC will reboot.
