Latest BIOS for Intel NUC6i7KYB?

I'm having trouble booting from a USB key, and thought I'd update my BIOS to rule that out.

Linux dmidecode tells me that I'm running:


BIOS Information
Vendor: American Megatrends Inc.
Version: KYSKLi70.86A.0037.2016.0603.1032
Release Date: 06/03/2016

Base Board Information
Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
Product Name: NUC6i7KYB


If I search for NUC6i7KYB on the intel drivers and downloads site, it shows nothing.  Searching for NUC6i7KY shows that there is a bios update available for NUC6i7KYK:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29887/BIOS-Update-KYSKLi70-86A-

I didn't want to install this without knowing for sure that this NUC6i7KYK bios update it is also good for my NUC6i7KYB. 

I suspect that is what I want, since I see that the readme for this NUC6i7KYK BIOS release mentions my BIOS version (KYSKLi70.86A.0037.2016.0603.1032) in the history, but it seems prudent to check explicitly before screwing things up.

Yes, that's the one you want. "NUC6i7KYB" is the identifier for the board in the NUC6i7KYK NUC.

Actually, it should have been displayed searching for "NUC6i7KYB" (@Chris_V_Intel - is the catalog screwed up again?).

Thanks Scott.  I was able to successfully install a newer up to date BIOS. 

Incidentally, the problem I was hoping to solve seems to have been solved by either the new BIOS or the reset of whatever state was associated with the BIOS before the update.  i.e.: Post BIOS update, I now see my USB drive in the legacy boot menu.
