NUC6i5SYK Bios BIN file



I have made a brick out of my nuc during bios upgrade. First the normal upgrade method failed, so i had to try the recovery method. This also failed and i am left with a NUC that only starts the fan, there is no output to screen, no response from keyboard and no light in the blue LED. I have tried all possible solutions for bios upgrade on the support page.

I am left with using a programmer tool to manually reflash the bios memory chip. But my problem is that the bios alreay on the chip is corrupt and i am not able to find a bin file that will work online.

Model: NUC6i5SYK


I know this is not officially supported by intel and the machine is out of warranty, but i want to give the NUC a new life instead of trowing it into e-waste, as the small pc is great for multiple lightweight applications.

If someone please could help me out with the proper bin file for the usb programmer this would be much appreciated.

You just happen to have a programmer tool?  Intel does not provide BIN files, so you are out of luck here.

No, I actually went on ebay and bought one after the bios upgrade failed.
