I bought a NUC on Amazon back in May. It's an awesome machine! Unfortunately, the recent W10 update (2004) killed it. After the "update" I could boot up, but no start menu, control panel, explorer etc. From searches it seems I'm not the only one who experienced this.
Frustrating, but OK.... time to load Win 10 from scratch. I have a USB loader.
My NUC came pre-built with 2 drives. The main is 512 m.2 The storage drive is 1T SATA. I removed the 1T, plugged in the USB and powered on.
Dozens of install attempts ended with this message: "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. installation cannot proceed'.
I've tried changing all relevant settings in bias. Also, updated the bios. Version is FN0039.cap
After more searching, I pulled the bios security jumper and tried install again. No luck.
Set bios defaults. No luck. I'm out of ideas. This is clearly over my head. I've emailed the seller on Amazon, no reply.
Any suggestions appreciated. I'm dead in the water and out of ideas.
