Updating BIOS reports successful but it hasn't actually updated.

Jump to solution

Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK (Skull Canyon)

 

 I am currently on 42, I have tried 59 with USB stick, and 55 with Windows .exe installer. Nothing actually works. I do get some random freezing and BSODs on this PC (very rare so I haven't looked at fixing it for a while) and I'm hoping that a BIOS update will help stability.

Please update your bios using bios recovery method with secure jumper removed:

Bios Recovery with Security Jumper removed: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005532/mini-pcs.html

1.Prepare USB stick fully formatted to FAT32 with Bios file KY0059.bio https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28360/BIOS-Update-KYSKLi70-86A-?product=89187 . Format your USB with Quick Format option unchecked. Do not format your USB in MAC (OS) or Linux machine. Use Windows.

2. Disconnect the power adapter and remove the bottom cover from your NUC.

3. Remove the yellow security jumper (see Product Technical Spec, para. 2.2.4.1, page 39 ) and close the bottom cover. https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/NUC6i7KYK_TechProdSpec.pdf

4. Insert the USB with the KY0059.bio file.

5. Reconnect the power adapter and power ON the NUC. Wait 30 sec - 2min. The Recovery process will start automatically and will end after 2 -5 minutes.

6. When bios recovery completed, switch the power OFF, remove the power adapter and replace the Security Jumper (pins 1-2)

7. Power your NUC ON.

Check whether the BIOS security jumper on the motherboard is set to the Lockdown (2-3) position, which prevents BIOS updates.

Thanks buddy, that worked perfect. Honestly never knew there was a BIOS jumper on this model haha! That was about the most difficult BIOS update I've ever performed... and it's probably a good thing too. Stop general users from mucking up their own PCs...

 

Cheers
