View Full Version : Install Ubuntu Desktop on the Intel® NUC

August 25th, 2018, 08:41 AM
Hello everyone. I have an Intel NUC7i7DNKE on which I have installed standard Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Desktop and it works well, except sensor support which only finds one working temperature sensor.

I have now found out that there exists a special "certified" image for the NUC: https://www.ubuntu.com/download/iot/intel-nuc-desktop
I have a few questions regarding this image for you experts out there: :D
- who has certified it? (Intel? , Ubuntu? ...)
- what are the differences between stock 16.04 and this NUC certified image?
- could I expect to get better sensor support using the certified image?

Hi, welcome to the fora. It's a specialised install and I expect that only few people here have tried it.

I suggest that you just try it, for example in a live boot.
