NUC5i5RYH - Cannot install Win 10 on M.2

Hi, I've seen this asked but haven't seen a solution.

NUC5i5RYH - M.2 SSD - Win 10. - BIOS 367

When trying to install Win10 via USB. I get to the "Where do you want to install Windows" disk screen and even though I can see the M.2 disk, I get the error "Windows cannot be installed to this disk......"

Bios --> Devices --> SATA I see the M.2 listed there.

Bios --> Boot --> Boot Priority I see "UEFI: USB:UEFI:USB:8.07:PART0:OS Bootloader...."

I have tried with and without UEFI enabled.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,

Press Delete to delete all partition on the M2 SSD and press New - Windows will create four new partitions. Press NEXT to continue with installation. If you receive a "Windows can't be installed on drive 0" warning, you will still be able to as long as you can click/tap on the Next button. See the following tutorial how to install Windows 10: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-clean-install-windows-10-a.html Windows 10 Forums

Leon, thanks for the reply. It's still not letting me install. Here are some screenshots....

This is the initial error:

Clicking "new" then "apply":

Partition is now created. Still error at the bottom not allowing.

More errors.

Clicking on "next" doesn't work, doesn't let me get past this screen.

Thanks again for the reply, let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Hi Chris,

Sorry that my advise didn't help you. Searching in net for string "windows 10 we couldn't create a new partition" I was be able to see different solution by partitioning SSD with 'diskpart' from Command Prompt. Before you try this I'll will suggest the following:

1. Before we start this process make sure that you don't have any SD Cards connected to your NUC.

2. Enter BIOS and set it to default: press F9 followed by "Y" and then press F10 followed by "Y" to save the settings and exit.

3. Try to repeat the Windows installation process.

4. If it will still not work, try one of solution in this link (copy without quotas): ' https://appuals.com/fix-we-couldnt-create-a-new-partition-or-locate-an-existing-one/ '

Thanks again for the help.

I ended up getting it worked out by creating a UEFI bootable USB drive as described here:

It appears trying to use the legacy boot/setup options were my problem.
