Problem Update BIOS in new NUC

I just received Intel NUC8i3BEH. Installed Samsung SSD, 2 Crucial memory sticks, and wanted to update BIOS before installing Linux Mint. Downloaded BE0077.bio on to USB stick and tried F7 BIOS update. Kept getting "could not detect bootable device" msg. So tried Power Button update and got to the screen for F7 and received the same msg. Visual BIOS sees SSD and memory. I use the blue USB plug with the USB stick. Any help? Thanks!

Did you format the usb stick as fat32 on a windows machine (not linux or mac)?

Also, if you did F7, you should see a bios screen appear to allow you to select the be0077.bio file. There is no boot involved.

"Did you format the usb stick as fat32 on a windows machine (not linux or mac)?"

 

Hi Al,

Been following you and ...S for a while and you guys are just so helpful! 😊

So...I had 2 USB sticks with the .bio file on them. The one Kingston stick had just FAT formatted after rt clicking into the Properties / File Selection ! Woops!

I thought that's gotta be the issue. When I went to format it, I just too 'quickly' looked at the option "FAT Default" and off I went.

Then re-formatted it as FAT "32" after receiving your msg, reload the .bio file, F7, and...we're good now with 077. Hoping Linux Mint likes it.

Thank you Sir!

glad it worked.

 

Now, you know only Windows 10 is supported on your NUC, right?
