NUC8v5PNK - AMT - Install Win 10 - Media driver your computer needs is missing...RESOLVED!


This is more of an FYI - Information piece than a question.

While attempting to install Win 10 using AMT (ver 12) on an Intel NUC8v5PNK, I would receive the error "A media driver your computer needs is missing". Searching for this error I found many articles here on the Intel forums and also others in general on the Internet....even this KB from Microsoft itself: . Most of these articles eluded to the problem being that the ISO file was corrupt. Note that I am using MeshCommander to connect to AMT and using Remote Desktop and IDER to push the ISO to the NUC.


I tried and tested many scenarios to resolve this issue:

  • Downloaded the ISO file directly from the Win 10 Download site.
  • Used the most recent Media Creation Tool (Win Ver 1909) to create the ISO, and tried multiple downloads / ISO creation.

After many attempts and not being successful, I decided to try it from another machine...and this time it was SUCCESSFUL. This second machine did NOT have AV software installed. My original machine has Sophos Central Intercept X, so I disabled all the Sophos protection and pushed the install thru MeshCommander (same as mentioned above). This is also successful (actually currently running the install as I write this).


I always doubted that the ISO file would be corrupt, as I usually build USB sticks with the installation (and that was going to be my next attept if I didn't get past this issue push thru AMT).


So in summary....when using AMT / MeshCommander to install the OS remotely, DISABLE YOUR ANTIVIRUS.


I hope this helps others who have struggled with this.
