Windows 10 installation on multiple NUC board simultaneously.

I am new to the NUC board and its configuration techniques. I am working with configuring windows 10 on the NUC board. The NUC board model number is NUC8v7PN. I have around 5 NUC boards and more to arrive in the upcoming week. I wanted to install windows 10 on all the NUC boards that I have. I am ready with my USB stick that has a windows 10 ISO file. Installing Windows 10 on the NUC board one by one would be time-consuming and hence I wanted to know is there any alternate solution to install windows 10 on all the NUC boards at the same time.

Please, suggest if any. Thanks in advance.

5 NUCS, and 5 USB sticks.    BUT...   The USB stick(s) will only be involved a very short period of time.  It is Windows setup where your time is.

And, installing on a NUC is the same as installing on any other motherboard.

Thank you for your suggestion. I think there is no alternative method other than what you have suggested. Thanks mate, I will look into it.

Well,  you might try booting the install from a network location, but for five installs I think it is hardly worth the time to set that up.

Just remember to make your install stick from the microsoft site:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Also, make sure you install in UEFI mode.

If you are going to set up near-identical systems - same board, same drive, same peripherals - then you can install once on the first system (including all drivers and Windows updates) and then, for each of the other systems, clone the first system's drive, boot it and change the Windows 10 license. Make sure you have Secure Boot disabled throughout this process; you can turn it on after the fact.

If I had to do this, I would use an adapter that allowed me to connect the first system's drive to the others via USB. These are cheap these days, even for NVMe drives.

Hope this helps,
