[NUC] Supported Operating Systems for NUC Products

 

Note

The Product Compatibility Tool lists non-Windows operating system versions that are reported as compatible by NUC users. ASUS hasn't validated these operating systems. We recommend you use the latest kernel.

If you need assistance with Linux* on an NUC, check our Linux* Support for NUC article or your distributor's website and forums for peer assistance.

To find SKUs by codename, enter the code name into https://www.asus.com. Then locate the Processor family in the NUC for use in the table below.

If a platform is not found in the Core generation section, it may be in the Pentium/Celeron sections.
