I am considering purchasing a Intel NUC 6CAYH and it dawned on me that I cannot figure out how to install the bios, sound driver, etc. after loading Peppermint 7 (64 bit). Thanks for your assistance in advance.

There are instructions (including videos) for how to update the BIOS here:
http://www.intel.co.uk/content/www/uk/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005636.html
but I wouldn't update it unless it turns out to be necessary

As for other drivers, a quick google for "NUC 6CAYH 16.04" suggests the only thing you may have to figure out is the wireless driver .. but it CAN be done.

I can't expand the Title field to allow ( SOLVED ) to be added. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks.

You're not doing anything wrong .. the subject field only allows so many characters, so you'd need to shorten the title.

I've done this one for you :)
