Was BE bios 66 pulled? I had downloaded it already to 2 NUC8i5s not really having issues but it makes me nervous that they seem to have rolled all the way back to 0051 on the NUC8 download page:
Intel -any comments??
Here's what DSA shows:
Can someone from Intel please comment as to why this was removed? I have a bunch of Nuc8's that were upgraded to 66. Should I try to downgrade them? I want to make sure it's nothing serious...
This is not true. It was in the Download Center for downloading.
I have two variants of BIOS firmware 0066 downloaded and still on my drive: BECFL357.86A.0066.BI.zip and BE0066.bio.
And now these were removed from Intel Download Center.
Me too I would like to know the reasons. I have a NUC Kit NUC8i7BEH. What to do if this BIOS update was flashed/applied to?
The answer you gave does not make sense, sorry.
BIOS 66 is neither available via DSA nor via Download Center. It has been completely removed.
My question is about why it was removed. Please do let us know why it was pulled so we can decide if we need to downgrade our systems.
I, too, am curios as to why it was removed. Wondering if there is some flaw or back door issue. I upgraded two NUCs with 0066 a few weeks back. Not sure I can roll back to 0051 or not (or if I should attempt it).
It appears that Intel has pulled 3 Bean Canyon BIOS releases: 0066, 0064 & 0056 from their download site, so BIOS 0051 currently shows up at the latest.
I too would like to know the reason, and also whether another BIOS release for Bean Canyon is imminent.
Well reading some older topics on this board and an issue I faced myself after updating the BIOS to versions later than 0051 (0064 and 0066), I'm not sure if they are related. To the poster one above, yes you can actually roll back to 0051 using the recovery method (requires some jumper removal on the NUC).
Thank you for replying. So just to be clear: if we are not setting a password on internal NVMe SSD, then there is no need to change BIOS back to 0051? (I have 0066 installed currently on many systems).
