Kernel panics when installing OpenElec on NUC - RvL - 10-04-2016

Hi all,

I'm having difficulties installing OpenElec 6.0.3 (and 7.0 beta3) on my new Intel NUC5CPYH (Braswell Celeron).

While loading the installer or during install (or actually on every random moment), I'm being plagued by random complete freezes. Sometimes a kernel panic is shown, most of the time Fatal exception in interrupt. Sometimes a 'attempting to kill the idle task' is shown.

If I'm fortunate enough to get OpenElec installed, it crashes in most cases soon after starting the installed OpenElec. I never made it through the initial config wizard...

I've also tried to load different Live CD such as Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Mint 18, which suffer from the same panics.

Is there anything known on this issue. I've read something about the older Bay trail NUC's freezing if the intel_c_state isn't set to 1 in syslinux. But for the current Braswell NUC, all I read is install and go...

Please help me, before I RMA this dreaded machine....

imagine if one day someone actually gave a shit about us users of Openelec out here and answered these questions with some help? For mine i cant figure out why the latest downoad Generic 6.0.3 doesnt have a boot disc option in the download files

Reset BIOS. save. Go back in. make the necessary changes.
Try newest compiled version of OE 7.0. And do a fresh install
