I have read and have seen screenshots of Intel NUC systems that are able to enable/disable the on-board Bluetooth/Wifi modules separately
In the NUC6CAYH BIOS i only see the option to disable the on-board WIFI module, Bluetooth is nowhere to be found...
When WIFI is disabled Bluetooth still works. Anyway to disable Bluetooth?
Thank you for joining the community to assist you better allowed me to know the version of bios that is currently installed on the NUC, did you found that option on a previous BIOS version?
No, like i said...not for this particular bios and model (v. 0047 as of today)
But i have seen Visual Bios Screenshots that had this option, see:
I am not going to be using Bluetooth on my NUC6CAYH NUC..at all, never ever...so a (bios) method to turn it off completely would be nice
This is a screenshot of my NUC6CAYH (BIOS v. 0047 as of today)
Yea, but I am willing to bet that the BIOS folks are so busy with the Spectre microcode fixes that it will be many weeks before they have time to look into this issue.
I understand that you would like to see the feature to disable the Bluetooth* on the BIOS interface.
Regarding this, I am currently looking into the information to see if there has been progress and will be getting back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience,
At this stage, I do not have notifications for new features to be added in new BIOS releases. My recommendation would be to keep on checking for BIOS updates at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/ https://downloadcenter.intel.com/ and check BIOS release notes for further information.
