Re: NUC7iXBNH not working with Plextor M8SeGN M.2 SSD NVMe on Latest BIOS BN0062

Hi IISB,

We are currently looking into this issue, can you help us with the following information:

  1. How many systems are affected by this issue?
  2. Do you have a chance to try other Plextor M8SeGN SSD? If you have several units what is the failure rate/reproduce rate of this issue?
  3. What Operating System do you have installed on the system? Please provide us with the SSU: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows- Download Intel® System Support Utility for Windows*
  4. Can you please confirm that you tried BIOS BN60? We are trying to narrow down issue? Here is the link for download: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27397/BIOS-Update-BNKBL357-86A-?product=95067
  5. What is the Plextor M8SeGN SSD capacity (128M/256M/512M…)?

Regards,

Ronny G

Re: NUC7iXBNH not working with Plextor M8SeGN M.2 SSD NVMe on Latest BIOS BN0062

Please note that we are Intel Gold Partner and we have all the resources and engineers to test and troubleshoot.

1. All the systems included NUC7i3BNH, NUC7i5BNH and NUC7i7BNH are all affected. We have all the models in stock, full range and many units to test on and 100% it's NOT WORKING.

2. All Plextor M8SeGN SSD no matter it's 128GB, 256GB or 512GB are all affected. We have all the models in stock, full range and many units to test on and 100% it's NOT WORKING.

3. Microsoft Windows 10. It's none related to Operating System because without Operating System it will also hang at main boot screen without reaching the Operating System yet.

4. We have TESTED all available BIOS including BN0060, even we have BN0061 that you immediately taken off after few days of release months ago. It seem that your development of your latest BIOS are very unreliable.

5. Already mentioned we have full range. We have been selling wonderfully with all the NUC without problems with old BIOS BN0057 and below until you created buggy BIOS BN0060 and above which are having those problems.

Re: NUC7iXBNH not working with Plextor M8SeGN M.2 SSD NVMe on Latest BIOS BN0062

We discovered the following:

When using BIOS BN0057 and below, BIOS UEFI Mode and Legacy Mode can be enable/disable without any problems.

When using BIOS BN0060 and above, BIOS Legacy Mode CANNOT set to disable else the NUC will hang at BIOS start screen and user will not be able to do anything and require to remove the M.2 SSD and set back the BIOS Legacy Mode to enable then only can install back the M.2 SSD. So no matter how, the BIOS Legacy Mode need to enable even user are running UEFI Mode.

Re: NUC7iXBNH not working with Plextor M8SeGN M.2 SSD NVMe on Latest BIOS BN0062

Hi IISB,

We tested 256G/512G M8SeGN on NUC7iXBNH i5/i7 versions with BIOS v57/v60/v61/v62, all the systems can boot into Windows 100% successfully.

Our Firmware on the drives is version 1.01, can you please check on that and perhaps try to update if needed?

Downloads are available at http://www.goplextor.com/Support/Downloads?SelectProductItems=711f234eeacb4af795662509ef1dbd22

Please let me know the results but If they are the same, I would recommend that you contact us via phone or chat and work with the support team so that we can get 1 or 2 systems including the SSDs to test internally, please make reference to case 3340469.

I am going to be away for a couple of weeks, my peers will be following up on this issue.

Thank you,

Ronny G

Re: NUC7iXBNH not working with Plextor M8SeGN M.2 SSD NVMe on Latest BIOS BN0062

Hi,

As mentioned, for latest BIOS V60/V61/V62 the problem only occur if the BIOS Legacy Mode is disabled.

Only UEFI mode enable and Legacy Mode is disabled, then it will hang at BIOS startup.

Re: NUC7iXBNH not working with Plextor M8SeGN M.2 SSD NVMe on Latest BIOS BN0062

Hello IISB,

 

 

I am following up on your inquiry.

 

 

We tested a 256G/512G M8SeGN on NUC7iXBNH i5/i7 versions with BIOS v57/v60/v61/v62. Given the recent issues experienced, we also have to consider the Firmware version on the drive used. The Firmware on the drives we tested is 1.01. We would appreciate if you could check on that and let us know for further research. If needed, please update the firmware and share your findings.

 

 

I am also including the downloads available on the link below:

Hi Wanner G.,

The problem are not related to the ssd firmware as we have all the version 1.01 and 1.02 that are already tested.

Again, you MUST disable LEGACY MODE on your BIOS v60/v61/v62 only the problem occur.

There is another user "lw1948" also encounter similar issue that you can also refer too.

I can confirm that my NUC7iBNH would not boot on a Samsung 850 EVO M.2. This was with the shipped bios, haven't tried with updated one. Popped it in another older NUC and it booted just fine.
