NUC8i3BEH setup win10 ko - driver missing

Jump to solution

Dear,

I have a NUC8i3BEH on which I am trying to install windows server 2016 or windows 10 x64

 

from/using a usb "ufd" bootable where I've put .ISO (prepared it with XBOOT tool).

 

But the setup stops with Load driver message stating : "A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD or flash drive with the driver on it, please install it now."

I tried downloading / unzipping Intel RST / Intel® Serial IO host controller and provide it once the message displays, but it doesn't help. Still get "No new device drivers were found …" message.

 

The SSD is a Crucial MX 500 - connected through sata & recognised in Bios.

I upgraded BIOS to the latest version.

 

I actually can't tell what's the driver missing. Truly frustrating as I can't start using the device.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Hello Yassine.SOUABNI

1. Prepare your installation media USB using Microsoft Media Creation Tool: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Download Windows 10

2. Install Windows, following this tutorial: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-clean-install-windows-10-a.html Windows 10 Help Forums . Skip over paragraph 12 and continue from para. 13 (UEFI boot).

3. After Windows 10 is installed and working, download drivers for your NUC form Intel's site: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/126150/Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC8i3BEH Downloads for Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i3BEH . You may download Driver Bundle (containing in zip file all drivers) or, you may download each driver separately after choosing Windows 10 64bit O.S.

4. Install each driver manually. The sequence of installation is not important. You may reset you NUC only once, after installing the last driver.

Hi

I have just installed a NUC8i5BEH (which is the same Board (so it needs the same drivers) just by using an USB-Device prepared with https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Media Creation Tool from Microsoft.

 

Worked fine (but know I have two other problems and I am sure that at least the annoying fan speed will occur even on i3 based models).

Hi lw1948 and Trial-Member,

 

"shame on me as an IT Guy" I was using a "appearently now stale tool (XBOOT)" which doesn't support UEFI & went enabled legacy boot...

 

the rest of the story is why I opened this thread.

So this time,

 

- I went to NUC's bios & hit F9 to reset to the default settings

 

- used RUFUS tool to prepare a (UEFI compatible) bootable UFD using 2016 server ISO file

 

- boot & installed on NUC very fast

 

Installing drivers now

Conclusion, removed XBOOT from my toolkits

Thanks again.
