I created a bootable USB windows installer from the Microsoft website and tried to install Windows 10 Pro on my NUC.
At 1st instance it created the system reserved partition. I created 2 partitions and then installed windows in 1st partition. Once installation was complete the computer would not boot to Windows. I found some guides on Google and then changed the partition type to GPT using Diskpart and now the hard drive is not detected in BIOS. I'm not sure where to go now. Please help.
Do not create any partitions yourself.
Follow my procedure here to install Windows 10 on your nuc:
I managed to get past the issue yesterday. Formatted the pendrive and then created the iso bootable device using the following settings. I think I made some changes in the bios BIOS settings. Installation went through without any issues.
1. For Windows10 you created wrong partion scheme (i.e. MBR).
2. The correct way is to enable UEFI boot in Bios and follow Al's procedure to install Windows on GPT partition.
Why the OP was creating his own partitions, and why he was using rufus to create an install media when the windows media creation tool works very well is beyond me.
We can see in this forum different people, with different way of thinking. They asking questions and got answer but then they are not following good advice.
I really appreciate the quick help seniors. Unfortunately I was tinkering with the installation after I created this thread and I had already successfully installed windows before I saw Al's reply. I had already installed the drivers and moved data over from my laptop therefore didnt want to go through the reinstall process once more. Thanks a lot for the assistance once more. Cheers!
