Another option is to disable power management in the BIOS. This is probably the simplest way to do it.

For what it's worth, I had the same problem with my NUC5i5RYB and BIOS version 0358 (latest as of June 2016 I believe). I was booting off of a USB stick (using either UNetbootin or YUMI), but neither worked.

I stumbled across another forum post where they mentioned that the CentOS 7 DVD iso image worked best when it was written to the USB stick using "dd".

On a second Linux machine I plugged in my USB stick, checked the tail of the output of dmesg ("dmesg | tail -15") and saw it was at /dev/sdb so I ran this command:

Code: Select all

sudo dd if=CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1511.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1024 ; sync ; sync ; echo Done
I booted from this USB stick and it worked.

Thought I'd post this here in case it helps anyone else.

Both unetbootin and yumi are known to be broken tools for this purpose and should not be used.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!
