Hello, I had troubles with updating my NUC. It had bios version sy0071. After I tried to update without the yellow jumper (every other step fails) it look good, but at the end of te proces I got a message that the update failed. I powered off with te button and after that it only turns on, with only te green led on the mainboard but nothing happens. I don't have a power led or screen. I don't no what to do to solve it.
Does intel have a fix that I’ve been unable to find?
I’ve read the current state of my bios chip to a bin so if possible I’d also merge it as to keep my machines identity after getting it to work.

Hi DvanL2, I fixed the issue by upload the bios file with a ch341A programmer. Then upgraded form 42 to 73 version with the manual from Scott. When you use the ch341a programmer, be aware the you use correct version. If it is the same Nuc with I have, then I would fix it for you if you want, but than you have to send it.
You missed the point. When you overwrite your NUC's flash part with the contents of another NUC's flash part, you are copying that NUC's branding. This means your NUC has the same serial number, same UUID, same MAC address, etc. and etc. as that NUC. Your NUC's identity has been completely replaced with their NUC's identity. You cannot overwrite the flash part without also overwriting its branding. After doing this, there are no tools that will allow you to recover your NUC's branding. Since so much of a unit's identification - within the O/S, on public forums, etc. - is based upon its branding, well, it should be obvious that this is not a good practice. Still, I cannot argue with it being your only recourse in this situation.
BTW, did you, by any chance, attempt this BIOS upgrade using an Express BIOS Update package?
Yes, feels like we are past that, sadly.
Regarding bios upgrade, it was done from within Windows. I've since tried via the Security Jumper but since I've got zero screen output I can't really say much more than its not been successful either (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/Visual-BIOS-Update-NUC.pdf).
Its been bricked for a while, bought a NUC8 as a replacement meanwhile. So my bad, hard to recall, probably iFlash then. Unless there is a way to unbrick it depending on method, idk why it matters.
Btw, super helpful comments - "you are out of warranty" (yes, I know), "Its stealing identity" (alright, but the official methods gets one nowhere, except for bricks), I thought the intel community would be helpful, or at least reasonable, (again) my bad.
We have 5 NUC's, they are great for older (grandparents) as well as younger (children) while not being so power-hungry. Starting to question that now.
