Device Description

The Intel Next Unit of Computing DN2820 (formerly "Forest Canyon") is a small form-factor PC desktop, powered by a dual-core, 64-bit Intel Atom processor (formerly "Bay Trail").

Support Status

  • NUC DN2820 - Green (Console OS works well on this device)

We fully support the Intel NUC DN2820 with Console OS Developer Release 1. Audio output may have problems, particularly over HDMI. This is a known issue.

We fully support installation to mSATA, 2.5-inch hard drive, and to the single USB 3.0 port with a USB hard disk.

Some users have reported issues recently with the built-in Ethernet on this NUC. We are investigating.

Installation Instructions

You must be running the latest BIOS from Intel.com before installing Console OS. We only test and validate Console OS using the latest system BIOS available, and BIOS updates are critical to the performance-tuning of Console OS and the underlying UEFI firmware.

The DN2820 has critical issues with older BIOS versions. Please be sure you are running the latest before installing, or Console OS will not work.
