Both Windows 10 & 11 state media driver needed during attempted install. Tried a couple of Intel drivers but install states see product manufacturer...

I know it's gotta be a setting I am not familiar with. I bought the Intel 670p to go with the Intel nuc.

Just need correct settings

 

Intel Nuc11i7pah

Intel 670p Series M.2 2280 1TB PCIe NVMe

Crucial 2x32Gb 3200

 

 

PS I had nooo problems loading linux!?!! go figure!

Hi @LarryT 

No need any drivers to install Windows 10 on the NVMe drive. The driver is included. 

1. I suggest you install Windows using the following method:
2. Please prepare your installation media (you need 8GB – 32GB USB stick), using Microsoft Media Creation Tool. This will install the latest version. 
3. 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.
4. With the installation media inserted into the rear USB slot, power ON your NUC and repeatedly press F10 to get Boot Menu.
5. In this menu, choose the UEFI option of your Installation media.
6. Follow this tutorial to continue with installation.
7. In para. 9 you may enter the Product Key from the Microsoft Distribution you bought .
8. Skip on para. 14 and continue in para. 15. Important, do not format the drive where you want to install Windows, rather delete all existing partitions from this drive, till you see one unallocated space.
9. Press Next and continue with the installation.

10.Once you finished the Windows 10 installation, you should download and install all drivers for your NUC.
The drivers you may find on Intel Download Page for your NUC. You have to manually download and install the Chipset Device Software as a first driver. Once you have this driver installed, reboot your NUC and continue with the other drivers (Graphics, WiFi, etc,...). The sequence of the installation is now not important and you must reboot your NUC only once, after the last driver is installed.
After installing the Chipset Software, you may download and install the Intel Driver & Support Assistant and use it to install all the drivers, instead of doing this manually. Next, you may upgrade to Windows 11 for free.

 

If you wish to install Windows 11, prepare the installation media   and follow this tutorial.

Thanks for the quick reply Leon!

I read your answer in another post and tried it except for the WCT and still got the same solution. I don't have a pc running windows so can't use the WCT. Only linux at the moment this is the reason for the new nuc so I can dual boot.

I got the ISO's from MS and created bootable USB's on linux.

In order to better assist you, please provide the following: 



1. Are you getting an error code while trying to install Windows? If so, can take a picture?

2. Which steps did you follow to create the ISO bootable device?

3. Have you tried with a different drive?

4. Are you able to just install Windows on a single drive? No dual boot
