Philippe,

Right or wrong, the Visual BIOS displays were designed for a fixed 1024x768 pixel resolution. As a software engineer, I can tell you that redesigning the interface for smaller displays would take months of engineering work and cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unless you are willing to pay for it, this simply isn't going to happen - especially for an older product like this.

Sorry, but that's reality...

{

HDMI resolution is not supported

 

If you are using an HDMI monitor or HDTV that doesn't support a resolution of 1024x768, you cannot access the Intel® Visual BIOS setup when pressing the F2 key.

All other Intel® NUC modelsLatest BIOS version from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ Download CenterOn monitors that support greater than 1024x768 resolution, the Intel® Visual BIOS will be scaled down to 1024x768 and centered in the display.

Note I reported about VGA, but I am happy it was fixed in later models.
