Nuc6cayh 2x4GB boot issue y or n...


Nuc6cayh BIOS Version AYAPLCEL.86A.0041.2017.0825.1152

The problem is that when turning on NUC two 4GB and it turns on, displays a message that the memory density is not and that the memory is smaller than 4GB have 1GB or 2GB.

After accepting Y, the system starts normally and works without problems. There is no memory problem and is seen as 8GB. Work perfect

I use the latest bios from intel, it annoys me a lot every time I turn on my computer

Also does not work in this fast boot system.

One 4GB memory works fine and there is no message.

You need to improve bios

These are indeed 2Mb technology SODIMMs, which are not properly supported by/with this processor. You need to replace with 4Mb or 8Mb technology SODIMMs. Continue using them at your peril.

Here are some references to look at. The second will help you find the right memory... System Memory for Intel® NUC Kits NUC6CAYH and NUC6CAYS Unsupported 1Gb or 2Gb Density Error for Intel® NUC Kits NUC6CAY

Hope this helps,



I do not need new RAM, they are stable and work perfectly.

I need bios with option disable this funny message because I get bored every time I turn on the computer.

If I do not even support and work with me, I would ideally like to be able to disable this message.

For some inscription I do not intend to replace memory if they are 100% stable and not interested or supported.

But I do not wish the bios to introduce restrictions and display this information if it is unnecessary. If you buy walking shoes in the mountains, when you go home by bus you take them off because you have inscription on the shoes that you can walk in them only on the mountains and not on hard surfaces?

What part of "this memory isn't compatible" don't you understand? While it seems to be working, it likely isn't. You should replace it.

No, support for disabling this message will not be provided.

I am not arguing with you. If you want to ignore this advice, so be it, you are on your own. I am no longer monitoring this conversation.
