I have purchased 3 DN2820FYKH NUC 1 of which was DOA of the other 2 they are proving hard to configure and use. On one I installed Mint 17.1, then lubuntu, then kodibuntu and gave up none of these could access the Toshiba MQ01abd100 1TB AF512e HDD so I bought a copy of Windows 8,1 x64 and Windows 7 SP1 x64. On the replacement for the DOA unit I loaded win 8.1 with no problems,Icould access HDD from windows. I wanted to know if the other OSes I listed would work, I tried kodibuntu and again could not access The hdd from the OS, reformatted with Gparted to NTFS and tried Windows 7 and got BSOD with error BIOS not fully ACPI compliant. I received this error on both of the functioning units, one with BIOS rev 0034 the other with rev 0048 The BIOS settings I used are:
Proceed with the installation of the operating system.
which I got from the Intel Downloadcenter. If you have installed win 7 on this model NUC please post your BIOS rev number and settings.
Well here I am replying to my own post to install Windows do not follow the instructions from the Download Center, instead in step 3. a set SATA mode to IDE This worked for me.
