Hi Rick

I haven't get any report about an Intel NUC.
My guess is that the install should work and ArcaOS should run with BIOS compatibility ON, if the M.2. SSD Card is SATA, or if it is used with a SATA HDD.
Wifi will not work. But I'm still not sure about the video output, if all ports will work or only Mini DVI.

Alex reported something... maybe similar. "ASUS VivoMini VC66 Mini PC"

I had a bad experience trying to install ArcaOS on an intel NUC 8th generation.
The system refused to install due to the A20 Gate error. In the bios, there are no options for emulating the keyboard, so I could not solve the problem.

The situation may improve with a future ArcaOS version. UEFI (and also NVMe) support is on the roadmap for 5.1.

Hi

On facebook there is this A20 Gate issue installing ArcaOS from Joseph. He opened a ticket without a way to resolve it yet.

Do you think that this will be fixed with the UEFI support in beta stage?
Any idea of the cause? some says it is the keyboard.

Regards

This a years old issue in the OS2CSM code Veit wrote in circa 2005. You get the same error message on older Mac Books with a CSM in the UEFI firmware.

Three  solutions for now:

1) Arca Noae would need to fix this in the OS2CSM code.

2) Wait for 5.1. As its true this issue will not occur in an UEFI boot.

3) Install on a different system (put the hard disc in another system).
Take amount of USB host controllers into account and modify the NIC driver.
