Intel Pulls Firmwares 56, 64 and 66 for NUC8 (Coffee Lake)
Intel has recently removed BIOS versions 56, 64 and 66 from their Download Center describing problems with password setup on NVMe SSDs.
We discovered a potential issue related to the set up of a password on NVME SSDs affecting NUC8ixBE, if your system is working as expected even if running a BIOS version earlier than ver 0056 then you are not affected by this issue.Ronny G, Intel
We are working on getting a newer BIOS version available soon. Please keep an eye on Intel Download Center.
Not much details are there, but if you see any issues, this might be something to keep an eye on. According to a local NUC dealer, the current models supplied for them come with BIOS version 0064.
Thanks to Terastore for the news heads up!
