Had a Dell laptop that had the same issue. The solution was to update Windows but I can't on the NUC. Anyone able to update Windows 10 past 1607?
Unplug every external device you can from the nuc, except mouse and keyboard. And, use a wired mouse and keyboard if you can.
No printers, no scanners, no SD cards, nothing except mouse and keyboard (and LAN connection).
Then try to update windows 10. If the update succeeds (it will take a long, long time), then plug in each device that you had, one by one, and note any failures or problems.
If windows 10 failed to update, then I do not have an answer.
