Note

The Intel® Product Compatibility Tool lists non-Windows operating system versions that are reported as compatible by Intel NUC users. Intel hasn't validated these operating systems. We recommend you use the latest kernel.

If you need assistance with Linux* on an Intel NUC, check our Linux* Support for Intel® NUC article or your distributor's website and forums for peer assistance.

Update this Intel NUC model to BIOS version 0030 or later before installing any Intel® processor I/O controller drivers. This update eliminates any errors that can display in Device Manager on I/O controller devices.

See Installation issues with Windows 8* and Windows 8.1* for limitations with these operating systems.

The eMMC embedded storage can be used for small-footprint operating systems, as typically used for thin-client, and light-embedded applications. Check your OS minimum requirements before trying to install an OS to this device.
