Where can I find older BIOS for a NUC6i7KYK?


Per the subject, I'd like to find older BIOS.

The latest, 0071, has ruined the ability to boot off of legacy devices -- which, means my linux system and older Windows partition.   Only UEFI devices work (and yes, I turned off UEFI, Secure Boot, flipped around the options in Power Settings 2, cleared the bios, updated recovery, etc., etc.).

Intel's instructions for problems with a BIOS upgrade is to downgrade to a working BIOS, but, of course, those BIOS aren't readily available.

So, if anyone from Intel can please help:

1) Please provide me with a link to a BIOS that actually works with Legacy MBR boots. 

2) Ideally, fix your help system.  Saying to downgrade BIOS and providing no simple way of getting those BIOS is immensely frustrating.

I have attached a ZIP file that gives you the KY BIOS releases that I have. This includes 63, 64, 66, 67, 68 and 71.

I do not believe that you will be able to downgrade beyond BIOS 68, however, due to ME updates.
