NUC6i7KYK unable to update BIOS and/or drivers

Jump to solution

I am (no, not me - my NUC is...) unable to update the BIOS and unable to update drivers - funny thing.

Trying to update the BIOS by using the kyskli70.86a.0046.eb.exe has the same result/behavior as trying to update it with the provided KY0046.bio (does not depend on the way I apply the KY0046.bio - doesn't work via F2 and the different update options within the BIOS GUI nor by copying it on a USB stick and using F7 at boot):

System restarts, after approximately 5 seconds without showing any message restarts again into Windows - the BIOS remains in its old version 0036 from March 2016.

Trying to update the INTEL drivers shows the same behavior (OS: Windows 10pro 64, build 1607) - again no difference between using the INTEL driver update utility or installing drivers one by one (using the drivers within the Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC6i7KYK_Win10-64_Drivers.20170412.zip):

Using the utilitzy, it checks the drivers, lists the actual drivers versions and the available updated versions - when I start it, it shows the download procedure and the installation procedure as well, but afterwards the drivers are the same version as before.

The mistake is sitting in front of the monitor, I'm sure, so please help me: What am I doing wrong?

And please excuse my poor English (or have fun with it), I do know that I am specialized in wrong prepositions, wrong word order, wrong tenses, poor thesaurus, and heavy misspelling, of course. Be happy that you don't have to listen to my pronounciation...

Hello njotha

1. If you can enter your bios setting by pressing F2 during the boot process. Press F9 to set bios to its default settings. Then press F10 to save those default values and exit bios.

2. Now update your bios using bios recovery. There are two methods to recover bios:

2.1 Pressing F4 form Power Button Menu: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000006030.html Power Button Menu BIOS Update Instructions for Intel® NUC

or if you can't enter to Power Menu

2.4 Removing bios security jumper: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000006030.html Power Button Menu BIOS Update Instructions for Intel® NUC . (See the attached image)

3. After recovering your bios, enter again to bios settings (F2 during boot). Press F9 to set bios defaults. Now, if you want, set your custom setting and press F10 to save and exit.

4. And finally, do not use Intel's tool for drivers update. This tool doesn't work as suppose to work. Update all your drivers manually. Download the drivers from Download Center: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/89187/Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC6i7KYK Downloads for Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK

Hope this will help

Hello Leon,

thanks a lot for this perfect Easter egg. As I posted, the problem in fact sat in front of the monitor. I did the F9 within the BIOS and all the other stuff, yes, but what I forgot to do was the F10 after F9... Please forgive me, I'm an old man at his seventies :-(

I wish you tons of finest chocolate, sunny and dry weather and whatever else you wish to make this day a really good day for you

-Jens
