NUC10i3FNK Win10 Driver on install not found

Hi,

when booting the install stick, after clicking on the "Start installation" button, before I get anything else I receive a " missing hardware driver, browse disk to search directory" window.

But no info what driver specifically. I downloaded & went through

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29690/INF-Driver-Pack-for-Windows-10-64-bit-for-NUC10i7FN-...

but that's not working either.

Any tips?

Thank you,

Tobias

Hi @TobiasMüller 

1. I suggest you to reinstall Windows using the following method:
2. Please prepare your installation media (you need 8GB – 32GB USB stick), using Microsoft Media Creation Tool. This will install version 2004.
3. Your bios should be set to default settings. Enter bios (press F2 during boot) and then press F9 (Y) to set defaults and F10 (Y) to save settings and exit.
4. With the installation media inserted into rear USB slot, power ON your NUC and repeatably press F10 to get Boot Menu.
5. In this menu, choose UEFI option of you Installation media.
6. Follow this tutorial to continue with installation.
7. In para. 8 you may enter Product Key from the Microsoft Distribution you bought .
8. Skip on para. 13 and continue in para. 14. Important, do not format drive where you want to install Windows, rather delete all existing partitions from this drive, till you see one unallocated space.
9. Press Next and continue with the installation.

Wow. It really makes a difference if you use Windows Media Creator instead of just writing the image to stick on Linux.

Does anyone know why, by any chance?

Otherwise solved!

 

Thank you very much!
