Reboot issue with NUC7i7DNB running on Windows 10 Pro

I have an NUC model NUC7i7DNB (motherboard J83500-204) which has working ok (not great to be honest) but it has started rebooting on its own every now and then randomly. I have read all articles on random NUC booting and made all changes to the BIOS setting others suggested but nothing has worked. Only option that has worked so far i.e. no reboot if I disable PowerSave option to Never in Windows 10 (64-bit Pro 2009 // build : 10.0.19043). That means NUC is making noise 24x7 but does not reboot. If I change setting to any other duration 15 mins or 5 Hrs, I find it waiting for boot password prompt. I am running latest BIOS version 73 dated 4/4/2021 

I did not have this specific issue until 2 months ago since I started using the kit about 2 years ago. I am sure some update has screwed up my machine and I am not able to find what driver to uninstall OR if this is a know issue. Any clues will help. Thanks.

Hi David, 

 

Here are other details.

Product code is BLKNUC7i1DNHE

Version J85489-204

S/N : **********76

MM : 966378

 

I have not re-installed Windows. It's a lot of effort as apps will be removed. Second, I did not this problem until a few months ago. 

 

Thanks

Thank you for the information provided. Based on the report provided we noticed you're not running the latest BIOS version for this NUC, please update to version 0074:

Thanks. Express BIOS upgrade program does not do any thing. I have restarted a dozen times. It starts OS instead of upgrading BIOS.

Leon is correct; you want to use the F7 method at this point.
I would point out that the number one cause of EBU installations failing in this way is because of only borderline-working memory. When the BIOS has to re-do memory initialization (because earlier attempt(s) fail), it can lose track of the pending BIOS update operation.

Thanks. Upgraded BIOS using F7 method. But no benefit. Reboot continues as earlier.

Hi @DeeCee21 

Once BIOS is updated, I would suggest to Repair Windows with an In-place Upgrade.  Performing this upgrade will replace your current Windows with a new installation, leaving your Data and Applications.
