I received a nuc a day ago and I've been trying to install windows on it. Launching from a windows intallation on USB, everything seems fine. Windows installation proceeds, copies files etc. but at the network screen says there is no network!
I have an ethernet cable plugged in which i know is good (i've swapped it out etc.). It's plugged into a switch - the switch has 2 flashing green leds and the nuc has a solid orange and flashing green (from L to R).
Any idea what i need to do here? Faulty port?
Make sure that you are running on the latest available BIOS released (update if not the latest) and then verify that the default configuration is loaded. This should result in the ethernet port being enabled.
Thanks for replying. Actually this didn't work, there was a slightly newer bios, but same thing.
here's what worked:
Honestly - i'm super surprised i needed to do this at all - what computer do you buy these days where you need to fiddle around with finding and installing specific drivers?
