Hi Intel Forum,
I have just installed a NUC6CAY(H) and receive an error message when booting up "CMOS time not set. Does this mean I need to replace the battery or do I need to reset the time. Please help with both if applicable.
I went to Visual BIOS/ change time/ System Date and Time.Time and date spot on. Clicked 'set' a few times.
On the RHS of screen there is a message "CMOS' time not set (12) 1/2/2016.
Hhmmm, there may be an issue with the RTC hardware. Let's go through a full hardware reset process and see if we can fix it. Here's what I want you to do...
Somewhere along the way, the error message about the CMOS Date/Time should have stopped appearing. If it is still appearing, it is likely a hardware issue. In this case, you will need to contact Intel and have them replace your NUC.
Hope this helps,
The Intel NUC BIOS Recovery Update Instructions do not apply to NUC6CAYH so I used the method advised in Intel NUC Cleaning CMOS which apparently resets the BIOS to default, then followed your instructions. This did not help.Is there another lot of recovery update instructions that apply to NUC6CAYH? Have I done this correctly please?
Scott is right about the Bios recovery instructions. The link from Scott's post points to the right instructions which are applicable also to NUC6CAYH. As you can see, there are two methods to perform bios recovery:
1. Power Button Menu
2. with removing Security jumper (as per Scott's advise). I'm attach image with the security jumper location.
If you prefer the easier method (Power Button menu), you should release the Power Button soon as the power led changes color from blue to amber. NUC will reboot into Power Button Menu. With the USB containing the latest bios file, press F4 and the recovery shall start.
