PC BB Intel NUC Kit NUC6CAYH Celeron J3455 Do not boat. Boots, recognizes Win10 or Linux (both as Boot USB formatted) but I can't get it to work. I have changed bios to "legacy" and "uefi" and removed them. Other way around



Once it worked with linux Debian mx. During the installation, unfortunately then frozen at 90%.

Which settings in the bios have to be made to install the operating system?

  1. Please prepare your installation media (you need 8GB – 32GB USB stick), using Microsoft Media Creation Tool:
  2. Your bios should be set to default settings. Enter bios (press F2 during boot) and then press F9 (Y) to set defaults and F10 (Y) to save settings and exit.
  3. With the installation media inserted into rear USB slot, power ON your NUC and repeatably press F10 to get Boot Menu.
  4. In this menu, choose UEFI option of you Installation media.
  5. Follow this tutorial to continue with installation
  6. In para. 7 you may enter Product Key from the Microsoft Distribution you bought.
  7. Skip on para. 12 and continue in para. 13. Important, do not format drive where you want to install Windows, rather delete all existing partitions from this drive, till you see one unallocated space.
  8. Press Next and continue with the installation.
