Hi

can I install one m.2 SSD and one 2.5” SSD/HDD in one NUC? On the M.2 the OS and the SSD/HDD just for storage, how I need to configure the system?

Depends on which 7th gen NUC. I have a NUC7i7DNHE, and have an m.2 and 2.5" in it. You install the os on the m.2 and use the 2.5" as you want. You have to get the "tall" version of the nuic so you can have the 2.5" bay.

" how I need to configure the system?" are you asking how to configure Windows or BIOS?

Thank you for the fast reply,

my NUC model is NUCUC715BNH ,

No problem to use 2.5 HDD and not SSD?

  1. You need to install the both SSD and SO DIMM (see this video how to do this).
  2. Enter Bios - press F2 during boot when you see the Intel NUC logo.
  3. While in BIOS, press F9, followed by "Y" and then F10, followed by "Y", to save the default setting and exit from BIOS.
  4. Enter BIOS again and verify that both SSD are recognized: Advanced > Devices > SATA and Advanced > Devices > PCI
  5. Check the list of Compatible part for your NUC.
