maybe issue with intel-microcode upgrade

try this:
"To bypass the microcode update during system startup, you must instruct the
boot loader (grub, lilo, etc) to pass the "dis_ucode_ldr" parameter
(without the quotes) to the kernel."
(source: /usr/share/doc/intel-microcode/README.Debian.gz)

Make sure you have the latest BIOS as well.

Seems a FAT32 formatted USB stick will do it under the F7 boot option

The NUC has the latest BIOS. So thats not the problem.
 I tryed typing in the command source: /usr/share/doc/intel-microcode/README.Debian.gz and got this Error.
Error: can't find command ` source:/usr/share/do'.

I followed the instructions on how to add a temporary Kernel Boot Parameter.
The computer still hangs at loading initial ramdisk

Can you help with this problem?
