SSHD doesn't boot when put into a new Nuc

I have an Intel Nuc (BOXNUC8i7BEH1) with a 2TB SSHD running Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS. The Nuc itself was faulty, so I removed the RAM and SSHD and got a replacement from the vendor.

 

When I put the SSHD and RAM into the new box, it doesn't boot. Partitions are thus:

 

sda      1.8T       

├─sda4 swap  977M [SWAP]   

├─sda2 vfat  3.3G      PQSERVICE

├─sda3 ext4  1.8T /      

└─sda1 vfat  47.7M /boot/efi 'EFI System

 

Instead of booting, I get the "Ubuntu Recovery" screen where my only choice is to do a restore.

 

I am -pretty- sure I've swapped SSHDs between Nucs (we've got multiples of the same model).

What am I missing? Thanks.

Your NUC only supports Windows 10.

You can try updating the BIOS, or contact linux.org for assistance.

I don't think that's true, since I'm currently running Ubuntu on 19 other of the same box.

I said SUPPORTED, not that linux would not run. Read the document I linked to.

 

And, the NUC is booting. It is just your linux setup that is corrupted..

 

Or, install Windows, or reinstall linux.
