You can reset the password from the Configuration Menu follow these steps:

  1. Disconnect the power adapter and remove the bottom cover from your NUC.
  2. Remove the yellow bios security jumper (see Product Technical Spec https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/NUC5i5MYBE_TechProdSpec.pdf https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/NUC5i5MYBE_TechProdSpec.pdf , para. 2.3, page 63: ) and close the bottom cover.
  3. Reconnect the power adapter and power ON the NUC. Wait 30 sec - 2min, you will see the Configuration Menu - similar to the attached image.

4. Press [2] to clear BIOS User and Supervisor Passwords.

5. Switch the power OFF, remove the power adapter and replace the Security Jumper.

Hope this helps

Leon, thanks for your reply, I tried the following:

- Unplugged the CMOS battery and wait for about 5 minutes, plugged it back in and that seemed to reset the password to default (admin).
