1. Please verify that your bios is set to default settings. Enter bios by pressing F2 during boot. Press F9 followed by "Y" to set default settings. Press F10 followed by "Y" to save the settings.
2. Is the SSD recognized in bios ? Advanced>devices>PCi
I understand that you can't enter bios and reset the bios to default settings since your keyboard is not responding. Try to update bios using Bios Recovery with Security Jumper Removed. Using this method you don't need the keyboard, it goes automatically.
Follow this procedure to recover bios:
- Prepare USB stick fully formatted to FAT32 with Bios file HN0050.bio https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28185/BIOS-Update-HNKBLi70-86A-?product=126143 Download BIOS Update [HNKBLi70.86A] . Format your USB with Quick Format option unchecked. Do not format your USB in MAC (OS) or Linux machine. Use Windows.
2. Disconnect the power adapter and remove the bottom cover from your NUC.
3 Remove the yellow Configuration jumper
4. Insert the USB with the HN0050.bio file.
5. Reconnect the power adapter and power ON the NUC. Wait 30 sec - 2min. The Recovery process will start automatically and will end after 2 -5 minutes.
6. When bios recovery completed, switch the power OFF, remove the power adapter and replace the Configuration Jumper (pins 1-2)
7. Power your NUC ON.
May be going from version 29 to 50 is to big step forward. You may try to update bios incrementally, starting with older version HN0037.bio https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27747/BIOS-Update-HNKBLi70-86A- Download BIOS Update [HNKBLi70.86A] .
Hope this will work
