NUC8i7HVK - Disable MicrofonArray in Bios

Hell Intel,

Why isn't it possible to disable the MicrofonArray in Bios of the NUC8i7HVK?

With other NUC's you have that Option...

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dongerdinger,

You can disable the microphone array within Windows, by either turning of the device driver-in Device Manager-or turning it off in the Sound control panel, like so:

Hello,

Thanks for your answer.

I already know and did turn it off in Windows... but i want to disable it in Bios.

I dont want Windows to have any access to it.

With other NUC's that have Mics build in, it is possible to turn them off in Bios..

Instead of disabling this microphone in Bios, you may disconnecting its connector (see location: item E Fig 11, page 40 in Technical Product Specification https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC8i7HVK_TechProdSpec.p... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC8i7HVK_TechProdSpec.p... )
