I am a hardware person not very good at all with software at this level. The compu...

Re: NUC7CJYH - Boot issues

Hi Bara
I will get there somehow - but don't yet know the way - surely not too hard.

When I get there I will post.

I am not inclined to install Win anything as I stopped using it so many years ago.

Peter
