No Bios and No HDMI output by NUC8i7BEH

Jump to solution

Hello,

i have now a mini PC kit NUC8i7BEH.

on this i installed Windows 10, for testing, then i installed Kubuntu 18.04 over Win10.

so too beginn i can go in Bios to disable secureboot.

Now I have the following problems:

- i cannot got to Bios anywehre

- i dont have any picture on boot (no Intel screen, no Bios, no Linux-Grub), and the system is black with sending "no Signal on HDMI"

also i have no picture until Linux is booted.

So i have treid these:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005847/mini-pcs.html?_ga=2.181088737.753... Can't Access BIOS Setup with F2 Key for Intel® NUC

Fastboot is not enable!

I tried the NUC on a monitor and on a TV

on this side, i cannot find any Tools or Bios-upgrade for flashing bios new?

https://ark.intel.com/de/products/126140/Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC8i7BEH Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i7BEH Produktspezifikationen

So the next try was:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005805/mini-pcs.html Clearing CMOS on Intel® NUC

But is the same thing, no Bios and no Picture on HDMI until Linux is booted.

Can someone help or give tips what I could try.

Hello EgLe

The Linux is not supported in NUC8i7BEH. Looks that some bios boot data where overwritten after Linux installation. If you want run Linux on this NUC, I suggest that you will do this fro Virtual Machine. Here you have link how to enable Hyper-V on Windows 10 Pro: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/hyper-v-on-windows/quick-start/enable-hyper-v Enable Hyper-V on Windows 10 | Microsoft Docs .

In your case I would try to recover bios from Power Button Menu. Since, I don't find any bios release for your NUC yet, I can't recommend it now. So, in this situation try to disconnect the Power Adapter cable and then disconnect the connector of CMOS battery for 15 minutes.

Still you can access bios from Power Button Menu. To get Power Button Menu, press Power Button for about 3 seconds. You should release the Power Button soon as the power led changes color from blue to amber. Alternately, the system will emit three short beeps from the PC speaker or headphones, if connected, then stop. If you see the LED color change or you hear the beeps, release the Power Button - NUC shall reboot into Power Button Menu.

Once in Bios disable the Secure Boot.

Many Thanks, this was the right answer

Okay now i can accses to the Bios, and now i have install Windows 10..... (is not my system)

Hmm, bad think one problem is solved, another problem is Windows 10

But this is a topic for a new thread

 

Okay, I have a pre-production engineering sample here.

But it can't be that Windows 10 is faulty, and a Kubuntu 18.04 runs perfectly only just damaged the bios.

I would say that this is still a BIOS bug, and hopefully will be fixed.

So, now with the new Software and BIOS on this page:

Linux is Working very fine

Now i have a new Dualboot-System with Windows 10 and Manjaro Linux KDE Edition (17.1.12)

Installation and working without any Problem by me.

Possibly it can be that with the sound output over HDMI the clay/tone croaks a little. At least this is still the case with my NUC8i7HVK.

But this is due to the linux drivers, and will hopefully be improved in the future.

But here I used a BenQ monitor without sound output, so the sound is simply sent via the external sound boxes without any problems.

And the best, the new Bios now makes no problems with the Linux!

Now I am really very happy with this Intel-NUC

But of course the best thing is that even this Linux with Kernel 4.14 has no driver problems and everything works right away.

Time to install the brand new Kernel 4.19 rc1

I just love Linux

Hello EgLe ,

1. I'm very glad that you have succeeded to install Linux and that you like your NUC now,

2. I got some link from al.hill which may be of some interest for you: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10 Install Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) on on Windows 10 | Microsoft Docs
