just arrived my nuc, insert an ssd (samsung 500gb) and voilà : A bootable device has not been detected!
do you have any idea?
You should be inserting your installation media and rebooting the PC. When the BIOS Splash Screen appears (i.e. when it displays "Intel° NUC" in big letters), press the F10 key over and over until a dialog is presented allowing you to choose from which media it should boot. Pick you installation media and let it start.
end of alarm, everything works perfectly!
I stayed the night to install ubuntu 18.04 and kodi: ALL WORK GREAT!
This nuc is amazing!
the only thing missing is the HDR (for now)
I have the same problem. Received my NUC7PJYH1 from newegg couple days ago. First boot with a WD 500g harddrive and installed windows 10 successfully but no bootable device found after restart the computer. Tried 2 different SSDs and had same problem, it boots up first but can't find the hard drive after reboot, no hard drive showing up in bios either. I am RMAing the NUC back to newegg now..
I also own a NUC7PJYH2 for the european market. My intention was to install my Intenso SSD (128GB) from my old media pc to the new NUC. A windows 10 64bit (version sept. 2017) is already installed on it. After starting the NUC I am getting the same error. In the UEFI the device is recognized and I can also see the filesystem when opening the bios update window (F7). Interesting enough, the SSD is not available when I want to select it as a boot device.
After this test I was unsure, so I took the SSD from my Laptop (Kingston A400 120GB) and put it in. On this SSD a Linux Mint is preinstalled. The result was quite the same. SSD was found as SATA device. In this case I also could select it as a boot device but in the end the same error appeared.
My goal is a Win 10 64Bit system. I also tried out the new bios version but without any luck.
Maybe anyone has ideas how to solve that issue. The next try is to format the Intenso SSD and install Windows 10 from scratch (April 2018 version)
It works now.
I think the major issue was that my Intenso SSD with Windows 10 was still used with the old start option IDE instead of AHCI. After reinstalling the Windows 10 from scratch everything is looking good so far. For me it does not explain why my other SSD with Linux Mint does not want to start as this one is using AHCI. Maybe it's just an incompatibility between Mint and the new NUC.
So for everyone: If you want to use an old operating system with the NUC, make sure it's using AHCI.
