I got an Intel NUC Celeron and I'm having extreme problems getting it to work.
My problem is that it does not start from the USB stick or from a hard drive that already has an OS on it.
Bios update was done, and also factory rest.
Does anyone have any ideas what else I can do here?
Thanks for the help. Alex
Ok, you have a NUC7CJYHN
Is your USB stick or disk UEFI bootable? Or, are they legacy boot?

[Maybe Windows 12 will be better]
Windows 11 doesn't work either. I tried it both as a USB stick and as a DVD.
I can start the bios recovery method, but the screen remains black.
I have now also removed an SSD from another computer that already has Windows 10 on it. The SSD is recognized in the bios, but it still cannot be started.
1. On the BIOS image attached to your post above, I can see TrackStorTrackStor USB device and SanDisk Extreme (which is probably the USB you tried to boot from). Please leave in the USB port only the Windows Installation Media USB.
2. You did BIOS update (probably with F7)? and there was video output during this update and you got message that the update was successful? Now when you are trying to recover BIOS, there is no video output?
Regarding 1: I have tried it both with a USB and with several USB sticks. I have already tested all USB ports, unfortunately without success.
Regarding 2: When I first updated the bios via the bios settings, it showed me the status and everything. It also showed as executed.
I'm slowly running out of ideas.
Sorry, but I don't know how I can help you. I don't understand the status of your NUC.
1. You can boot into boot into BIOS.
2. BIOS is set to default setting (i.e. all USB ports are enabled and Fast Boot is disabled).
3. You have video produced from BIOS
With all the above, I don't understand why the recovery process is not starting.
