Oo.  I've got an Atom NUC I managed to "brick" by running kernel
4.5-rc which crashed.  Twice in an hour, and now it's running without
problems but I can't trust it again yet.  Sigh.

This is telling you to suck eggs, but I was able to get mine back
following the bios recovery procedure.  It involves removing the
motherboard jumper.


The weird part is I only had to "reset the CMOS" (their words), and
all that means on my model is entering "visual bios" (second wince)
and reset the settings to default.

Which you're _supposed_ to be able to do using the "power button menu"
(hold down power button to power on, release when the power button
changes e.g. from blue to orange).  That did a number of different
things but nothing helpful.
