Description of Issue

I’m very new to all this. I’m not sure which BIOS I need to down load and install. I tried to install TNTGL357.0069.EBU.exe with no luck. I’m not sure that this is the right download.
Could you give instructions for dummies as to how to get this NUC bios updated and installing ROCK.
I’m sure that this has been asked many times. I am able to follow the set up instructions as long as the nuc behaves as expected.
Thank you for your anticipated help

I’m afraid there is an issue. You are trying to install ROCK on an 11th generation Intel NUC. This is NOT possible at the moment, because ROCK requires the legacy BIOS to install - which the 11th generation NUCs do not have.

You do not need to update the BIOS either.

Until ROCK has been updated to install using the modern BIOS, you could use the NUC for your Roon Core by installing Windows or Linux as your operating system, and then installing the relevant version of Roon.

Have you seen this article?

Sorry, didn’t notice you had a GEN11 NUC. As @Geoff_Coupe says you can’t run ROCK on that, yet.
