Off-topic. This thread is only for the SKL NUC.

I don't know why my NUC was rebooted everytime I ran Photoshop CC?
Does anyone know the clue?
Thanks!
Change the ig-platform-id to 0x19260002 using Clover Configurator. I had the same problem as well as well as other graphic intensive apps. Final Cut runs as well as the other Adobe apps.

@cthetoy: Thanks a lot for the post. I was having trouble to use my NUC as a screen sharing server. It would always crash when connecting. After changing the ig-platform-id it is working flawlessly now.

Its a NUC Kit NUC6i5SYK with a Intel® Core i5-6260U running el Capitan 10.11.6 with clover, single boot.

So... HD540. It would be good information to have in your profile (because without it, the notes on ig-platform-id are without context and not useful).

I'll fiddle with it on my NUC to see if I notice any difference compared to 0x19260000.

I didn't notice any difference (I don't have the apps people mention issues with), and since people report some problems with 0x19260000 I switched my guide files (SSDT-IGPU.dsl) to use 0x19260002 instead.

When you compare the data in 0x19260000 with 0x19260002, there are quite a few differences, most of them in the "mystery" areas of the platform data (data that we have no idea on its purpose/meaning). Interesting that they both sort-of "work" with so many differences.

Hi RehabMan,

Thanks a lot for your efforts and looking into this. I've been working with 0x19260002 for the last three days and everything worked like a charm. So at first sight your switch to 0x19260002 seems reasonable!
Regarding the apps: I wanted to connect to my NUC using the screen sharing feature (System Preferences-->Sharing-->Screen sharing). There is no specific app required for this so it should be easy to reproduce the error. You just have to enable the sharing on the NUC and try to connect with any other mac from your network. If you try this while using 0x19260000 the nuc will freeze, but with 0x19260002 everything works as supposed to.

OK. I didn't know what you meant by "screen sharing server", now I see you just mean "use remote desktop to access the NUC".

I'll test/try just as a verification.
